Waterloo Bird & Animal Control
Hawkeye Bird and Animal Control Inc., servicing Waterloo, ON. Waterloo and Kitchener are two different cities adjacent to one another in southern Ontario. Often referred by locals as KW, Waterloo is located north of the city of Kitchener. They are both located north of Highway 401 west of Toronto about 110 kilometres to the city center, but only 80-90 kilometres or so to the GTA. This makes them attractive areas to settle down in while being in commuting distance from many corporate head offices in the greater Toronto area. Sometimes the area is referred to as Tri-Cityincluding Cambridge, adjacent to the south. Housing and property are more affordable in the Tri-City area. They have a smaller city vibe with big back yards and all the urban amenities while still being proximate to the GTA.
