Pets bring a community to life and are an important part of many Edmonton families. Pet ownership is regulated under the
Animal Licensing and Control Bylaw and the City of Edmonton's Animal Care & Control Centre works with pet owners to help ensure pets are a positive addition to the community.

Our new centre provides excellent care and control of lost and stray pets in Edmonton.
If you have lost or found a pet, we can help.
There are over 40 sites in Edmonton where your dog can run and play without having you on the other end of the leash.
Pets are a great addition to our city, but there are some obligations you have as a pet owner.Pet Licences
All cats and dogs six months or older must have a valid pet licence. Pet licences are affordable and available online.
A dog may become a "Restricted Dog" in Edmonton if it has been convicted under the Animal Licensing and Control Bylaw for chasing, attacking or biting any person or animal. It is not illegal to own a dog like this, but there are some additional regulations that apply.
It is illegal for cats to roam on private property without permission from the property owner. If you have an unwanted cat on your property, you can humanely trap it and bring it to us.
