In Red Deer, we have a one of kind adoption centre built and donated by Petland Canada inside the store. Our main adoption centre has 12 dog runs and 12 cat runs.
With our efforts and success and partnerships, we have adopted thousands of cats and dogs over the years. Reflected in all of our programs and services is our belief that people and animals are inherently good. We strive to create a judgment-free and caring environment for all community members seeking our services, whether they are surrendering a pet or looking into adopting or utilizing our programs. Over the years we have streamlined the adoption process and have moved toward a more positive way of connecting people and animals.
There are no more lengthy applications and screening processes. Instead, we want to engage in conversation with prospective adopters. If we start from a perspective that people are coming to us with the best intentions, we will have a much better success rate of finding life-long matches.
