Your pets are members of our community and we want them to safely enjoy living in Adjala-Tosorontio. Our Canine Control By-law and Kennel By-law keeps our community and companion animals safe by making sure pet owners understand their responsibilities. 

Canine Control Services

In conjunction with Township By-law Enforcement Officers, the Township appoints an outside contractor to provide Canine Control Services. Some of the services provided include:

  • Responding to alerts of lost or found dogs;
  • Sheltering and fostering lost dogs;
  • Licensing dogs;
  • Promoting responsible pet ownership; and
  • Responding to dangerous or menacing dogs. 

To report a lost dog, or a found stray contact our Canine Control Contractor - Ewe Herd Me at 705-220-6890.

Impounded dogs will be cared for at the Outrun Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre (998089 Mulmur Tosorontio Townline, Lisle ON) in accordance with the Township Canine Control By-law, while our Canine Control Officers attempt to reunite the animal with its owner. Should reunion efforts be unsuccessful the dog will be fostered and made available for adoption. 

To drop off or arrange for a pickup of a found stray, please contact our Canine Control Contractor - Ewe Herd Me.
