Found An Animal?

Found A Dog?

If you have found a dog, please call the municipality you live in:

Call your local canine control officer and make sure that your lost dog hasn't been picked up or the dog you have found hasn't been reported missing. Your local canine control officer will pick up a found dog, check it for a microchip and take it to the township pound. Dogs remain in municipal pounds for a period of time so owners can redeem them. Once the waiting period is up, the dog becomes the property of the municipality.  

Your local canine control number should be the first call for everyone with a lost dog or a found dog. ADHS is the pound for the townships of Essa, Clearview and Adjala-Tosorontio. Dogs from the township of New Tecumseth come to ADHS after a five day holding period at Arcticlight Kennels in Tottenham, the pound for New Tecumseth.

Every municipality has a paid canine control officer. Their numbers are as follows:
