Due to Covid-19, we have made some changes and require appointments for you to meet our animals.

Please call 403-625-2593 to make an appointment to view our cats and kittens.

To make an appointment to meet our dogs, please call 403-625-0432


Animal lovers can help the Claresholm animal shelter by telling other animal lovers about the value of pet adoption. Many people are unaware that there are healthy dogs and cats available for adoption that can be long-time, loving and happy companions.


If you know anyone considering getting a new pet, let them know how they can help a needy animal. You’ll be doing a good deed for shelter pets and for their future owners.  Adopt a pet from the Claresholm Animal Rescue Society.



Adoption Fair @ PetSmart 

We have adoption fairs at the PetSmart in Okotoks and Lethbridge every 3 months.  Due to the COVID-19 virus, all adoption fairs are postponed until further notice.
