The Animal Control officer is responsible for both domestic and wild animal concerns within our community. In some cases, your call may be referred back to the Town Administration for by-law clarification or onto the RCMP if the concern is warranted.

Animal Control By-law  819-20

Phone: 204-371-5859
Animal Control Officer: Lorna Friesen

All dogs and cats (6 months and over) within the Town of Niverville are required to be licensed. You may have up to 3 pets per household. If you are within this number, please use the application form provided below. Proof of rabies and distemper vaccinations along with breed of dog must be presented at the time of application before a license or renewal can be issued. Licenses are $20 per pet, per year. If renewal is completed on or before the expiry date, the license will be a reduced fee of $15. Should a cat or dog be picked up by the Animal Control Officer, fines must be paid at the Town Administration Office before the animal can be retrieved.  If a pet is picked up by Animal Control during a weekend or on a Statutory Holiday, the return of the pet may only occur once fines and fees have been paid at the Town Administration Office during regular business hours.
