Our Animal Services Officers work closely with our community to ensure that all animals are kept safe and healthy.

Peterborough Humane Society is subcontracted by the City of Peterborough and other municipalities to investigate and enforce animal-related bylaws.

Our Animal Services team focuses primarily on education on responsible pet ownership and is founded on collaborating with the community. Our Officers do a lot of work on educating the public not only on local bylaws but also the Dog Owner Liability Act.
