Kent/Harrison – Animal control services in the District of Kent and Harrison Hot Springs has been taken over by the FVRD – Fraser Valley Regional District. This will combine with services in Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack.
The reason for the change was basically a necessity.
The old kennel in Agassiz which was used for the service, closed down after the vet who ran the kennel, retired and moved out of town.
It made sense for Kent Council to join forces with the FVRD.
Licensing your pet is still required so you don’t face fines, let alone have a tough time ID’ing Fido.
Animal Control staff are available six days a week, Monday to Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. To report an animal control issue or to lodge a bylaw complaint, call 1-844-495-CARE.
To report a dog attack in progress after regular business hours, call local police (RCMP).
