Our new Rescue Centre in Morinville opened in October 2022.
Please note that the facility is open to the public by appointment only as a meet-and-greet location for those who apply to adopt an animal.
We continue to see an alarming trend in requests to help animals. In addition to adopting, donating, and spaying or neutering your own pets, a great way to help animals is to support the events that help fund our operations!
