Burnaby Animal Control service changes

January 31, 2024

The BC SPCA has been contracted by the City of Burnaby to provide animal control to the community for a number of years; however, a recent service change means the City of Burnaby has assumed responsibility for these services, with the exception of kennelling services which will continue to be provided by the BC SPCA, effective immediately.

Starting February 1, 2024, members of the public should call the City of Burnaby for:

  • Assistance with stray animals
  • Concerns about dangerous or noisy pets
  • Dog licensing

The BC SPCA will continue to provide the following services to Burnaby residents:

  • Accepting surrendered animals by appointment
  • Animal adoptions
  • Help with lost pets
  • Emergency outreach support for the community
  • Concerns about abuse or cruelty to animals
  • Kennelling support for stray animals through the City of Burnaby animal control services

For assistance with injured or orphaned wildlife, members of the public can reach out to the following for assistance:

In addition to the other resources listed above, the BC SPCA’s Animal Helpline team is trained to help assess situations involving pets and wildlife. Anyone with questions or in need of guidance can call 1-855-622-7722.
