We are contracted by the City of Wetaskiwin, the Town of Millet and the County of Wetaskiwin to provide these municipalities with animal shelter services.
If you have found a lost or stray or abandoned pet in any of these communities, we will look after it for you by providing it with shelter, food, water and any needed veterinary care. Please contact the appropriate bylaw department first and have them get the animal or obtain permission to bring it into our shelter. Once at our facilities we check the pets over for identification: collars, tags, tattoos or scan them for microchips. Hopefully we are able to find the owner and safely return the pet to its home. Under the Provincial Animal Protection Act we are obliged by law to keep all unclaimed pets for a minimum of 3 days or 72 business hours. If the animal has identification or appears to be purebred we must keep them for 10 consecutive days. At the end of this time period the pets are surrendered to us and we will examine them and put them up for adoption. If you find a stray animal please follow the proper legal procedures so we have the greatest chance of identifying it and reuniting it with the owner. If it is unclaimed and you still want to keep it, you can than legally adopt it. Thank you for your care and concern in helping those pets in need.
