Domestic Animal Control
Animal control in Fort Erie is a function of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). They are a charitable not-for-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of all animals and to promote humane treatment of all animals. They provide a home for all the animals that have been abandoned or lost until we can find a suitable and loving home for them. All questions regarding adoption, strays, dog bites and dog licenses should be directed to the SPCA
