Everything you need to know about owning or interacting with a cat within the city limits.

Effective June 15, 2020, ACCC will accept cats by appointment (not including trapped/feral cats). Citizens are encouraged to first make attempts to find the animal’s owner before making an appointment for admittance into the ACCC. It is important to note that cats are 10 times more likely to find their way home if left where they’re found. Priority will be given to those animals that are injured, sick or in distress (including pregnant cats and kittens under two months without a mother). An appointment is required and can be made by calling 311 for assistance or visiting edmonton.ca/pets. ACCC continues to intake stray dogs when an appointment has been made. You must make an appointment to pick up your lost pet or have a lost animal scanned for a microchip.

Lost Pets

As of May 25, 2020 Animal Care & Control will begin the intake of stray dogs and will continue to intake animals that are in distress, injured or sick (including pregnant cats and kittens under two months without a mother).

Until further notice, the ACCC will not admit healthy cats. 

All services require an appointment and can be made by calling 311 or visiting edmonton.ca/pets. You must also make an appointment to pick up your lost pet. 

Injured Animals

If you find injured animals, please call 311 and wait for further instruction.
