The Stratford Perth Humane Society is continuing to increase the areas that they patrol.

The society is now providing animal control and by-law services in Perth South after they were awarded the contract in November.

Officials say the services, which includes animal control for dogs, animal by-law and pound services, began on December First and will be in place until December 31, 2023.

The SPHS announced a similar contract with West Perth late last month.
