If you have a concern or issue with an animal in Deseronto, different situations have different contacts.

In cases where animals are hurt or in distress and without the care of an owner, lost, or presenting a danger to the public, Davies and Elliott Animal Control provide animal control services to the Town of Deseronto.  If a situation arises please call Deseronto Town Hall during regular office hours (Mon-Fri 8:30am - 4:30pm).  If the situation occurs when the Town Hall is closed, please call Davies & Elliot directly (1-888-663-4443)-their services are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.  If you wish to check afterwards about the response, call Town Hall during office hours.

However, if the animal poses an imminent danger to anyone (e.g., chance of attacking or rabies), please call the police immediately!

In cases of cruelty, such as an animal being abused by the owner or someone else, please call the Belleville office of the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) between the hours of 8:00am - 5:00pm any day of the week.  If a situation occurs outside of these hours call the police who may attend to the situation themselves or send the OSPCA.  Abuse includes leaving an animal outside or in a car in conditions that are too cold or hot, failing to provide for the animal’s needs for food or water, wounding/severely hurting the animal, and abandoning an animal in a building or pen.

If the animal is making noise for too long (disturbing the peace), call Deseronto Town Hall during regular office hours, or the police after hours.

Paws 4 U in Deseronto (partnered with Belleville Fixed Fur Life) works to reduce the overpopulation of stray and feral (wild) cats by arranging to spay/neuter them, and then arrange foster homes while they recuperate and until they are ready to be adopted.  Sometimes Paws 4 U can also offer resources and programs to assist pet owners with limited incomes or financial hardship to ‘fix’ their animals and to provide necessary/emergency veterinary care.  Approval by Paws 4 U is required.

Paws 4 U is a non-profit charity, run by volunteers, and does not receive government funding.  To operate it depends on fund raising, donations of money, services, food and medical supplies, time, and materials.  Paws 4 U does not euthanize (put down) any of their animals to make room for others.  The homeless animals are cared for until they are adopted.  If Davies and Elliott Animal Control have an animal from Deseronto that is not claimed by an owner, Deseronto’s Paws 4 U group must be contacted about fostering the animal before the animal is sent to any other animal control agency.

Deseronto Paws 4 U meets the third Tuesday of the month, at 6:00pm at the Deseronto Public Library, you can become a volunteer or express a concern that the group may be able to help address.
