Thank-you for considering the adoption option!
Shelter operations are offered solely on a cost recovery basis. We most definitely wish to see the shelter dogs as readily available as commercially bred dogs but unfortunately we need to cover our overhead to do so.
We are happy to offer private adoption consultation appointments 24/7 at the shelter with a recommended donation of $55/hr to staff and open the facility to convenience you. This way, appointments may be available 24/7. Here, you will have individualized attention, you will not be one of an number interested, potentially, in the same animal at the very same time and may take as much or as little time as you prefer in one sitting.
Alternatively, we do offer public walk-in hours weekly, right at the CARES K9 Orphanage, alternating between, us and one our Edmonton or Calgary event locations where ALL are welcome to visit, with no suggestion of compensation. The weekly public hours are as listed,
CABANA DOGGIE DAY CARE OUR GRACIOUS EVERYDAY ADOPTION CENTER WELCOMES YOU FROM 12pm-4PM Monday -Friday! THERE ARE MANY DOGS ON SITE AND AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION EACH WEEK! EACH PROFILE HAS THE ANIMALS CURRENT LOCATION LISTED. JUST DROP ON IN @ 5905 GATEWAY BLVD. EDMONTON!
Monday through Friday – 12PM – 4PM at the CARES Everyday Adoption Center located at the, Cabana Doggie Day Care, located at 5905 Gateway blvd. Edmonton.
Unfortunately, during open public hours, we will not be able to offer the individualized attentions we fortunately are able to provide via a private consultation appointment. Too, we would like to bring awareness the fact that there may be multiple candidates vying for the same adoptable animal, a wait time upon your visit, that shelter K-9 introductions will be limited to the first 10 visitor submitting “A meet and greet application” upon your arrival, there will be a two dog/ per visits limit and we will not be able to offer outside dog – to shelter dog introductions during public hours. Don’t worry, you will be able to view, all the adoptables upon your visit regardless of the publics turn out that day! We appreciate your patience, your understanding and need to applaud you for considering the adoption option!
