The mission of the Pembina Valley Humane Society is to support humane and sustainable communities for all animals through education, advocacy, respect and responsibility.

Most dogs that end up in shelters are mixed breeds. Our staff can only make a “best guess” on what breed a dog in our care may be & we are surprised to learn how often we are wrong! Now we are able to offer a way for owners to find out what breeds actually are combined to make up your wonderful mixed breed dog! The test is a super easy cheek swab & results are quick, usually back within 2 weeks! It’s so much fun & always surprising to get the results! Plus, purchasing a DNA kit from our shelter helps animals in need because a portion of the proceeds is kept by our shelter! Purchase a kit today for only $10.00 (Cash only)! Please note that a processing fee of approximately $65 will need to be sent into the company along with the DNA sample. Here are some great reasons to DNA test your dog! You will get the following information:

  • Your dog’s full breed composition.
  • Unique personality traits of your dog.
  • Genetic health concerns.
  • Predisposition to disease.
  • Plus, much, much more!


  • A custom photo certificate of your dog’s breed composition.
  • A percentage breakdown of each level of each breed found in your dog’s unique DNA.
  • A report on your dog´s dominant breeds, personality traits and health
