The Township recently conducted a thorough review of Animal Services in South Stormont, which included the previous Dog Licensing and Control By-law and the Cat Limit By-law. After extensive research of best practices, feedback from residents during two phases of public consultation, and the direction of Council, the Township has adopted a new Responsible Pet Ownership By-Law.

The Responsible Pet Ownership By-law replaces both the Dog Licensing and Control By-law as well as the Cat Limit By-law and focusses on a wide-range of animal services, animal control, enforcement measures, and more.
