Adopting from the Lethbridge Animal Shelter provides a dog with a second chance.

​The fees to adopt a dog are:

$200 Adoption Fee + $20 for microchipping

This fee covers the spay or neuter of the dog and vaccinations. A dog license is also required for dogs being adopted to a city address.​


Cat Adoption Fees

There are a lot of great cats at the Lethbridge Animal Shelter in need of good homes.

The fees to adopt a cat are:

$160 Adoption Fee + $20 for microchipping

The fee covers the spay or neuter of the cat and vaccinations.

 ​***Note: Animals that are under six months of age and cannot be spayed or neutered before the adoption date will come with a voucher to have the animal spayed or neutered at a later date.***​

Our Adoption Process

​If you are interested in adopting a dog that you have seen online, please stop by the Shelter and fill out an application form and visit with the dog.  On the adoption day for each dog, a new home will be selected based on the best interest of the animal. 

Our goal is to prevent spontaneous adoptions and returns and to ensure long and happy homes for our furry friends.  Questions about this process can be directed to the Shelter at 403-320-4099.
