How we Sup­port Ani­mals and Com­mu­ni­ties in New Brunswick

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.

Ani­mal Protection

Our Ani­mal Pro­tec­tion Offi­cers inves­ti­gate reports of abuse or neglect and assist the munic­i­pal police and RCMP on ani­­mal-relat­ed matters.

Ani­mal Control

Ani­mal Advocacy

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.
