Animal control services

Dog control

Leduc County employs an animal control officer who is responsible for monitoring and investigating dog complaints from county residents, as well as enforcing action, if necessary, in accordance with the Dog Control Bylaw 22-05. This bylaw requires dog owners to be accountable for their dogs.

To report a violation of the Dog Control bylaw, please fill out the form at the bottom of this webpage or call 780-955-5005.

If you have been bitten by a dog or your animal has been bitten by a dog, seek medical or veterinary assistance immediately and report the situation to the dog control officer as soon as possible.

Cat control

Leduc County does not have a cat control bylaw; it partners other agencies to respond to cat control concerns in the county.

Stray cats

Stray cats are homeless cats which may have, at one time, been indoor cats which are somewhat socialized with people. These cats can typically become companion animals with the right care and circumstances.

Stray cats which appear to be healthy can remain where they are; however, if the animal is injured or outside in extreme conditions, residents are advised to contact the Alberta Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) at 780-447-3600 or info@albertaspca.org.

Feral cats

Feral cats are homeless cats which have had minimal contact with people and are not likely to become companion animals.

If a feral cat is found in Leduc County, it may qualify for the Edmonton Humane Society’s (EHS) Trap Neuter Return program. This program helps prevent unwanted litters and pet overpopulation. This program requires residents to trap a healthy feral cat in a humane trap and transport it to the EHS during admitting hours. The cat will be spayed/neutered, will receive vaccinations and will receive a microchip. This program then requires the original transporter to pick up the cat post-surgery and return the cat to the original location.

To inquire about this program, contact the EHS at 780-491-3522 or ehs@edmontonhumanesociety.com.

Livestock control

If livestock are found to be at large outside of their compounds, including on any public roadways, residents should call the Brand Registrar at Livestock Identification Services Ltd. at 1-866-509-2088.
