Over 70 Rescue Dogs Now Call Edmonton Home Thanks to Edmonton Humane Society & Partner’s Rescue Mission

Edmonton Humane Society partnered with Pet Food Bank of Parkland County to rescue over 70 dogs from Peace River area.

EDMONTON & PEACE RIVER — This is the largest rescue project that the Edmonton Humane Society has ever brought back in a single go.

Due to the tens of dogs being from all different aspects of life, a lot of work is required at the EHS before they are ready for the public to adopt and call their own.

The majority of the dogs, require varying medical treatments, so unfortunately, the dogs are not available for the public to come and visit in person.

This all occurred over this passed weekend of September 17th and 18th, 2016.

All of the dogs have arrived in the capital city of Alberta this weekend, and have all come from reserve communities just east of Peace River.

Check out those puppy eyes:

Something to keep in mind is, it’s very expensive and a lot of work for the Edmonton Humane Society to take care of all these puppies and dogs for long periods of times. This is why they’re asking for fellow Edmontonians and abroad to help by calling one of these rescue pups your own.

Interested in adopting?

The Edmonton Humane Society is asking the public to keep an eye on their website to keep track of animals being put up for adoption once they’ve become ready for a new home.


You are also more than welcome to join them on Facebook and Twitter to keep in touch and learn about these upcoming adoptions over the course of the coming weeks.

If you wish to become a foster parent to any of the EHS’s animals, you are more than welcome to apply here.
