Cause for Critters has moved!!!!
We are open again!  Our cat bay is full of critters just waiting to see you.  Please be patient as we continue to prepare our dog bay.  (No dogs here yet - sorry.)  Our new location is 5517-53 Avenue, just south of the bottle depot, or just up the street from the bowling alley.  (It is the old Associated Ambulance building.)  Our phone number is the same: 780-898-7297.  Please give us a call if you have any trouble finding us.

Why is Cause for Critters moving?

Cause for Critters has long held the desire to be able to house both dogs and cats within our facility.  We are excited that our new, larger location will allow us to do that!

Two dogs adopted out by Cause for Critters!

We have also desired to have a closer relationship with the Town of Drayton Valley.  Our new location is owned by the town and as such we have reached an agreement with the town.  As part of this agreement, we will be working with animal control.  Cause for Critters will assume responsibility for the basic care of the animals while they are housed under animal control.  Animals who have not been claimed by their owner after the designated time period will, at the discretion of animal control, have the opportunity to be transferred into the offical care of Cause for Critters.  At this point Cause for Critters will assume responsibility for all care of the animal until the animal is adopted out from Cause for Critters.

Two animals housed in animal control: the first was successfully returned to his owner & the second is now living at Cause for Criters, awaiting adoption.

We are very excited to begin these two new ventures: housing dogs at the shelter and working closely with animal control.  As always, Cause for Critters seeks to give the best care possible to all the critters temporarily entrusted to us until we can find a loving forever home for each one.  We thank all those individuals and organizations who have supported us and our goals in the past and we hope you are able to continue this support as we venture into these new endeavours.

A huge thanks to Gruber Holdings for allowing us to have our old shelter in your location for so many years!  Words cannot express our (or the critters') gratitude!

Critters of the Week

Feather

Feather

Meet Feather, a very slim and trim little girl. This black beauty may have some of the Oriental breed in her as you can see from her unique ears and body shape. Feather is a cat who marches to her own drum - when she feels the need for attention she'll seek it but when she wants to do her own thing that's what she'll do. Feather is an independent soul whose big eyes will capture your heart - and make you wonder, "What is she thinking now?"
