Thank you so much for looking into adoption for your next pet through a shelter! Here you will find details about our adoption process.

Please review this information thoroughly. Should information be requested that has already been covered here, it may be ascertained that the time wasn’t taken to read through the adoption process information, and an inquiry may not be processed forward.

Step 1
Please read this information, Adoption Considerations, and our FAQ in their entireties and, if you find your interest remains, please proceed to Step 2.

Step 2
Look through the profiles of our current adoptable dogs here. Then complete and submit a pre-adoption consultation application via our website here, or in person at our Leduc County adoption centre.

Step 3
Visit our Leduc County adoption centre to meet the dog you’re interested in adopting. Make sure to contact us prior to visiting to ensure the dog you’re interested is there, as we do utilize fostering on occasion. We are located 6km south of Leduc off Hwy 2A in the hamlet of Kavanagh. Please remember that you do require a confirmed appointment to attend outside of adoption hours. Our address and hours of operation can be found here.

Step 4
If your pre-adoption consultation application has been approved, you have met the dog, and wish to proceed with adoption, you will then be required to sign our Adoption Contract and pay the adoption fee in full prior to taking your new furry friend home.

Please note that adoptions are based on a first come, first served basis and we do not hold any dogs. Animal acquisition of any sort, especially adoption through a dog shelter, requires a large amount of flexibility, dedication, financial commitment, continued education, and behaviour modification. An animal’s behaviour may differ drastically in different situations and environments. Just as we are a product of conditioning and our past, so are our furry friends. Unconditional love is a requirement for an adoption to be successful. Too often the challenges of a shelter adoption bring the former adopter to return animals to the shelter all the while displacing blame either on the animal or the shelter staff.
