Animal Control Services

The District of Sparwood is committed to working in partnership with the community to create a safe, healthy, and caring environment for animals and people. Whether it's walking your dog on a leash, adopting a pet, purchasing a dog licence, reporting wildlife concerns or issuing a complaint, the District offers a range of services for animals and their owners.

Off Leash Dog Parks

With direction from Council, District of Sparwood Staff are exploring the option of creating one or more off-leash dog parks in Sparwood to provide an area for dog owners to let their dogs off-leash. We have created a survey (download it here!) for residents to complete so we can gather input about off-leash park(s) in Sparwood. Click here for more information.

Sparwood is bear country and it is important to be aware and be prepared.
