  • Accommodation of lost and homeless dogs at the pound;
  • Adoption and foster care;

Lost Dog?

All dogs found by our Municipal Law Enforcement officers are taken to the pound. They are housed and fed until they are reunited with their owners or placed for adoption.

When our agents find a dog, we publish its picture on this page and on the City of Clarence-Rockland's Facebook page. If you see your dog on this registry, you can call the Client Service Centre at 613-446-6022 to make arrangements to retrieve it. Impound fees will apply.

Follow them shovel in hand

Dog's feces pose a risk to public health, make outdoor activities unpleasant and pollute the environment. Help improve the public perception of dogs and dog owners - get into the habit of picking up your dog's feces and taking it home for disposal.
