Animal Control

The Municipality of the County of Kings has two by-laws to insure that the ownership of animals does not interfere with the safety and well being of County residents.

Animal Control services in Kings County are provided by the Nova Scotia SPCA Kings County Branch, located at 1285 County Home Road in Waterville. The SPCA is responsible for the enforcement of the by-laws along with maintaining an impound facility where stray dogs, cats and livestock can be temporarily harboured.
