EHS Wish List

Thank you so much for your support!

We will gladly accept new or gently used items from the list below. Please ensure any used items have been cleaned and disinfected before bringing them to the shelter – this helps protect the animals in our care. For the safety and health of our animals, we are unable to accept any pet food or treats that are already opened.  If you are unsure if your item will be accepted please call us first at 780-491-3507.

Items can be dropped off at our Adoption Gallery or Education/Training entrance during our regular hours:

  • Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Wednesday 2 p.m to 7 p.m.
  • Saturday & Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Gift cards are always needed so that we can buy the specific supplies the animals need.  Most needed include places like Walmart, Home Depot, Canadian Tire, PetSmart, Mr. Pet’s and Superstore.

You can also conveniently order items from our Amazon Wish List and have them delivered directly to the shelter.
