Animal Control Officers are responsible for enforcing the City of Moncton's animal control bylaws (H202).

They answer calls for issues such as stray animals, complaints from the public about barking dogs, dogs that are defecating off their property, dogs being walked off their leash and dangerous animals, to name a few.

Part of their responsibility is also the sale of annual dog tags. It is part of the City's bylaw that all dogs residing within city limits wear a City of Moncton dog tag.

Another large part of their job is public education. These officers take any opportunity they can to answer questions from the public regarding animals, the shelter itself and the City of Moncton bylaws related to animals.

If you have any questions or concerns about animal control, please contact the appropriate officer for your area:
