The NBSPCA’s role in the community is to keep animals safe. We do this in a number of ways, whether it’s enforcing provincial animal protection legislation, including pet establishment inspections and awarding licenses, creating awareness and promoting humane public education, offering dog control services in communities throughout the province, or working with provincial legislators and animal advocacy groups for stronger laws.
Our Animal Protection Officers investigate reports of abuse or neglect and assist the municipal police and RCMP on animal-related matters.
We serve the rural areas and some municipalities in New Brunswick by helping with problems like:
- Stray dogs running at large
- Nuisance dogs
- Dog attacks on people
All establishments in New Brunswick that breed, board or sell dogs as well as pet stores and animal shelters are required to have a Pet Establishment Licence.
We are dedicated to giving all animals a voice. Working side-by-side with government agencies and other animal welfare groups across the country, we advocate for stronger animal-protection laws.
