Pets bring a community to life and are an important part of many Edmonton families. Pet ownership is regulated under the Animal Licensing and Control Bylaw and the Animal Protection Act.  The City of Edmonton's Animal Control Peace Officers works with pet owners to help ensure pets are a positive addition to the community. They also respond to animals in distress or animals that have been abandoned.
