Animal Protection 

The Manitoba government’s Animal Health and Welfare branch under the direction of the Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO) is responsible for enforcing The Animal Care Act, Manitoba’s animal welfare legislation. This act is designed to protect the welfare of all animals under possession, care or control of people, including livestock, companion animals and non-domestic species such as reptiles and pocket pets.
If you suspect any animal is:
       - lacking adequate food and water
       - exposed to extreme cold or heat
       - not provided with suitable medical attention if wounded or ill
       - confined in an area of insufficient space
       - kept in unsanitary conditions
       - confined without adequate ventilation
       - not allowed an opportunity for sufficient exercise
       - suffering, seriously injured or in extreme anxiety or distress
Please notify authorities.
