Animal Bylaws

The Ontario SPCA Orangeville & District Animal Centre is contracted to enforce Animal Control Bylaws for the Town of Orangeville, the Town of Mono and the Town of Erin. To learn more about animal bylaws for Orangeville, Mono or Erin please call our office during normal business hours or contact the municipality.

License your dog!

If you live in the Town of Orangeville or the Town of Mono, you are required to have a current license tag affixed to your dog’s collar. Dog tags expire December 31 each year. Shelters across Ontario receive thousands of stray animals each year, and many do not have identification. Identification (including microchipping) is the best way to ensure that your lost pet can be reunited with your family!
