What We Do
Pembina Valley Humane Society
Saving animals. Serving community.
The mission of the Pembina Valley Humane Society is to promote humane and compassionate animal care through sheltering, adoption, education, and community outreach.
Through initiatives such as our Volunteer and Foster programs, the Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic, PetSafe Program, and “Be A Tree”, our goal is to ensure the proper care and safety of companion animals in the Pembina Valley and beyond.
What We Do
Adopting from an animal shelter is a responsible way to add a new member to your family and give a second chance to an animal in need. By adopting from a shelter, you’re making space for another animal in need and helping to give them the opportunity to become beloved pets.
Choosing to surrender an animal can often be a difficult decision. If someone is unable to care for their cat or dog any longer, surrendering them to the PVHS is a responsible choice; the animal will receive care and be safe while waiting for their new home. The PVHS is a no-judgement zone.
Fostering provides a safe and healthy environment for animals who need to grow, heal, or get some extra TLC while waiting for their new home. Caring for a foster cat or dog also helps the PVHS see the animal at their best…the shelter can be stressful on animals and seeing them in a home increases their chances of getting adopted!
The PVHS helps animals, but also the community we serve. We aim to understand problems from the community’s perspective, which can help create solutions. The goal is to develop relationships within the community in order to motivate them to get involved or help advocate for the humane treatment of companion animals.
The PVHS is here to serve the community by teaching the next generations about animals and how they deserve to be treated with kindness through in-class programs hosted by schools. We also work to educate the community on pet-care essentials such as the importance of spaying or neutering an animal and humane animal treatment.
