​Supporting responsible pet ownership in Calgary​

​​

We provide value to you through these services:

  • reunite lost cats and dogs with their owners.
  • licence cats and dogs residing in Calgary.
  • enforce the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw (23M2006).
  • investigate complaints regarding animals.
  • help neighbours resolve animal-related issues.
  • shelter and care for impounded pets in our vet-run facility.
  • provide adoption services, finding new homes for cats and dogs.
  • operate a No Cost Spay/Neuter program through the Fair Entry program.

Some Animal Services processes have changed due to our response to COVID-19. Learn more.
