Animal Control

puppycockerAs there is no official Animal Control Officer, Gander's Community Constables, in conjunction with the SPCA, maintain this service through a cost sharing initiative. Any problem with animals within the municipality is first taken care of by the municipal police; then the SPCA are called in accordingly. In situations of animal abuse, the SPCA is contacted immediately for their advice/approval and/or assistance. The animals dealt with have ranged from domestic cats and dogs to wild bears, moose and beavers. The animal shelter is located on McCurdy Drive, adjacent to the Town's Municipal Works Depot, and is operated by the SPCA.
