The Town does not regulate the keeping of cat within the Town of Essex. However, as a courtesy to your neighbours, we ask that you do not allow your cat to wander into your neighbours' yards.

Stray cats

In partnership with the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society, the Town subsidizes the cost of taking stray cats found within the municipal boundaries of the Town of Essex to the Humane Society. The typical fee for taking a stray cat to the Humane Society is $30.00, of which the Town subsidizes $20.00 and the person taking the cat to the Humane Society pays $10.00.

For more information about the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society call 519-966-5751 or visit their website.
