Animal Services

Many residents of Central Frontenac enjoy the companionship of Dogs. In order to assist in keeping our canine friends safe and accounted for, all dogs living in our township who are more than 6 months old must have a dog license, which is renewed annually. Dog licenses assist in the retrieval of your dog, if lost.

For the safety of the public, as well as our loyal companions, please remember that dogs are not permitted on any of our public beaches, and must be leashed at all times when off its owner's property.
