Note: We do not accept animal drop-offs.
All animal surrenders must be arranged in advance with PVHS’ Shelter Manager. Our shelter is often at capacity. You may be placed on our intake waiting list & contacted as kennel space becomes available.
If you need to surrender an animal, you will be required to pay a surrender fee when you leave the animal in our care. The surrender fees help pay for the high costs of operating our shelter, and pays for things like food and veterinary care for the animals.
Please call 204-822-9413 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements to surrender an animal.
Cats – $30
Kittens (if the mother is also surrendered, or if you can provide proof that the mother has been/will be spayed) – $10 per kitten
Kittens (if you are unwilling to surrender the mother or have her spayed) – $20 per kitten
Dogs – $60
Puppies (if the mother is also surrendered, or if you can provide proof that the mother has been/will be spayed) – $20 per puppy
Puppies (if you are unwilling to surrender the mother or have her spayed) – $40 per puppy
*The mother should be sterilized to prevent future unwanted litters! If you refuse to have the mother spayed or surrender her into our care, we may be unable to assist you in the future.*
We recognize the urgency many people feel when they rescue a stray animal and want to help it or if they need to surrender their own animal but, unfortunately, our kennels are often full so we cannot guarantee space. You may be placed on a waiting list and contacted when a kennel becomes available. In the meantime, please phone your area’s animal control officer to place the animal in the care of the pound. If you live in an area that does not have a pound or animal control officer, please phone your area’s council and inform them that you see a need for one.
*Stray dogs found directly in Morden or Winkler or in the RM of Stanley MUST be taken to the local pound. The pound is located at the Morden Vet Clinic (204-822-4333).
*Stray cats found directly in Morden or Winkler MUST be taken to the local pound. The pound is located at the Morden Vet Clinic (204-822-4333).
If you have an injured animal, or an animal in need of veterinary care, please phone your local veterinarian.
