About Cause For Critters

We are a non-profit animal

shelter in Drayton Valley, Alberta.

Since our inception in 2008, we have helped over 3,000 animals reconnect with their owners or find new homes. Our goal is to provide the best possible care to our resident animals while they wait for their forever families.

How You Can Help!

There are so many things you can do to help our animals. 

Here are a few ways for anyone looking to make a difference!

Volunteer

Spending time with the animals is crucial to their emotional well-being, and it allows them to grow and gain confidence while they wait for their new families. Volunteer opportunities are available for cleaning, feeding, and even playing with the animals at Cause for Critters.

Cat volunteers must be 16 years or older. Dog volunteers must be 18 years or older. Children are permitted to join as long as the shift is primarily done by the certified volunteer. Criminal checks must be provided. Training sessions will be completed before the first volunteer shift.

Foster

Cause for Critters loves their foster families! Fostering a pet costs you nothing, but it means the world to the animals of our shelter. We are always in need of temporary homes for all kinds of animals.

Donate

We accept monetary and supply donations. If you are looking to donate supplies for our animals, look at our Wednesday Wish List on Facebook!

Donations are accepted in all forms: cash, cheque, card, and e-transfer to causeforcrittersdv@gmail.com. All donations over $50 get a tax receipt.

Special Events

Cause for Critters loves community events! In the past, we have hosted occasions such as Santa Paws, Raise The Woof, paint nights, cat yoga, and annual adoption events.
