Located on the outskirts of Red Deer, Alberta, Oodles of Doodles is Western Canada’s premier breeder of Goldendoodles. The business aims to produce intelligent and well-socialized puppies that effortlessly fit into the families that adopt them. From the moment they are born, their puppies are fed a top-tier diet and receive regular vet care and grooming to ensure they are in peak form. They are also walked and played with regularly to provide them with the physical and mental stimulation they need to develop physically and psychologically. Oodles of Doodles’ puppies come with a two-year health guarantee against life-threatening genetic conditions.
Established in 1976, the Central Alberta Humane Society, previously known as Red Deer SPCA, is an independent non-profit whose mission is to help vulnerable animals and inspire change in Central Alberta through education. The organization’s staff works closely with over 400 volunteers, animal rights activists, and donors to positively impact the lives of lost, unwanted and desperate animals.

Its animal shelter currently houses dozens of adoptable animals, including cats, dogs, and bunnies.
Fostering Hope partners with communities in Alberta and Saskatchewan to rehabilitate vulnerable dogs and cats until they are ready to be adopted by local families.

The Saving Grace Animal Society is a charitable organization established in 2018 to help safeguard the welfare of all “unplaceable” animals in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The organization works closely with experienced trainers and seasoned vets to ensure all animals under their care receive the best quality health care and rehabilitation until they are cleared for adoption. Since it first opened its shelter, Saving Grace has successfully adopted out over 2,600 animals, with more than half of those adopted out in 2020 alone. The organization has also found new homes for more than 22 farm animals from its sanctuary.

Pet adoption allows you to get a forever companion to inject joy and excitement into your life. While most adoption locations obtain a clean bill of health for each animal in their custody before placing them for adoption, it doesn’t hurt to have a third-party vet inspect your newly adopted pet before taking them home. If you need a veterinarian to examine a pet you’ve just adopted, book a virtual vet appointment with Vetster.
