- We apply all by-laws in an impartial way, trying to be an educational experience for all, always explaining, mediating in a respectful fashion.
- We will provide expert advice to guardians and neighbors faced with a problematic situation.
- If we receive a complaint for a deemed dangerous animal, we will proceed with a veterinarian assessment and behavioral assessment.
- We will loan trap-cages for the capture of feral cats, or for a fearful dog. A deposit is required when taking the material and refunded upon return.
- We offer ethical management of cats that cannot be adopted, through our Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) program.
- We are agents for the application of provincial laws and by-laws on the well-being of animals.
All of the above services are provided by a qualified and experienced team of people, always ready to help or answer questions you may have.
