NOTE: Richmond Animal Control Services
Effective Monday, February 1, 2021, the BC SPCA will be responsible for animal control services in Richmond.
While the City of Richmond begins construction of a new animal shelter on their existing site, lost and stray animals will be transported to the BC SPCA Vancouver Branch (1205 East 7th Ave., Vancouver) for care until they can be reunited with their owner. Note: Every effort will be made to first contact an animal’s owner and return the pet home directly before transporting the animal to Vancouver.
To report a lost, wandering or aggressive animal, barking, nuisance or injured animal, please call 604-709-4668. For inquiries on animal regulations, dog licensing and fees, please contact the City’s Community Bylaws department at 604-276-4345.
