Animal Control ensures a safe and healthy environment for both residents and animals in our Municipality.


Municipality of South Bruce offers an Animal Control Service for dogs. All dogs are required to have a Dog Licence to help identify your pet and return it safely home. If you have concerns regarding dogs running at large, please call the Municipal Office (519) 392-6623.

Lost Pets

Please call the Wingham Veterinary Clinic at (519) 357-2471 immediately if your dog is missing. Dogs that are picked up by Animal Control Officers are taken to Wingham Veterinary Clinic located at 11 Alfred St E, Wingham, ON N0G 2W0.  You may also want to consider posting your missing dog on your own personal social media (ex. Facebook, Twitter etc) 

Trails and Public Parks

Dogs must be on a leash at all times when walking on the trails and enjoying public parks.

Poop and Scoop

Pet owners are reminded to clean up after their pet.
