Hot summer days are great, but not so much for our furry friends. It's important to remember that your pet has a limited capacity to deal with the heat. Never leave your pet alone in the car for any period of time, as it can lead to heat stroke which can be fatal.

With services provided under contract by the London Animal Care Centre (LACC), Animal Care & Control's four main areas of responsibility are animal control, by-law enforcement, dog licensing and cat identification program and shelter services for stray animals.
For the protection of residents and visitors to London as well as other animals. Our mandate covers stray dogs, sick, injured, or dying domestic or wild animals except those animals provided for by the London Humane Society and confined cats.
Services are delivered seven days a week, with some conditions. Other functions include rescue matters where animals are in distress, 24 hour emergency service, subsidized spay neuter incentive program .
Enforcement of three City of London by-laws:
Issuing Provincial Offences Notice (PONs):
- Part I Certificates (can be paid out of court)
- Part I Summons (requires the recipient to appear in court)
- Part III Summons (requires the recipient to appear in court)
Issuing Notice of Contravention (NOCs) - typically issued to allow a pet owner time to purchase identification.

Please note: new and/or renewal of pit bull licences must be done in person by the pit bull owner at London Animal Care Centre.
