The Brant County SPCA provides animal control services to the City of Brantford. These services include the pick up of dogs running at large as well as sick or injured animals. We also enforce the bylaws pertaining to animals listed in Chapter 206 of the City of Brantford By-laws.
The by-laws were revised in 2005 to include a restricted dog section pertaining to Pitbull type dogs, as well as Dangerous and Potentially Dangerous dogs that have bitten or acted in an aggressive manner. These by-laws can be reviewed in detail on the City of Brantford website.
Dogs that reside in the City of Brantford are required to have a current year’s licence, which can be obtained at City Hall (located at 100 Wellington Street) as well as the Brantford Hydro office (located at Market Square).
The SPCA does not sell dog licences.
