Responsible Pet Ownership
Be a responsible pet owner
Many Spruce Grove residents are pet owners and consider their animals to be part of the family. Pets can be a wonderful addition to both a household and a city, as they can help keep people active, provide companionship, and add diversity and vibrancy to the community.
In order to ensure the wellbeing and security of all Spruce Grove pet owners, their animals and their neighbours, the City of Spruce Grove encourages all pet owners to be responsible and familiarize themselves with the City's Dog and Domestic Animal Control Bylaw.
