The Pembina Valley Humane Society strongly believes that all companion animals (dogs and cats) should be spayed or neutered. All animals that come into our care are sterilized, and to date, since 2002, we are proud to report we have completed over 700 spay or neuter surgeries.

Currently, we partner with the Morden/Winkler veterinary clinics to help us. When you adopt a pet from the PVHS, the fee you pay ensures that it will already be spayed or neutered, or if it is not, you will be given a certificate that entitles you to take it yourself to the Morden/Winkler clinic.

Winnipeg Humane Society's SNAP (Spay and Neuter Assistance Program)

If you are in a reduced income level and cannot afford to pay to have your own pet spayed or neutered, you may qualify for a reduced rate at the Winnipeg Humane Society. Please call WHS directly to register for thier program at 204-888-7627.  

Dogs and Cats on Farms

Every year, hundreds of unwanted animals are born on farms in our rural areas because owners do not want to incur the costs of sterilization surgeries. Owners of mulitple pets may feel it's too expensive to do one, let alone two or more animals. Sadly, our shelter is often at capicity and we are unable to take in these unwanted litters. As a result, many animals are "disposed of" in inhumane ways.  If you have multiple pets that need sterilization, you may qualify for the Winnipeg Humane Society's assistance program. Call 204-888-7627 for more info.

Feral Cats

Many of the towns in the Pembina Valley have "colonies" of feral (wild) cats living among buildings or structures, both downtown and in neighborhoods. Some residents may have the impression that these feral cats are a nuicance, however, the reality is, these cats are doing a very important job for our communities. Wild cats keep the mice and rat populations under control. For only a few bags of cat food a year, the cost of rodent prevention is minimal.

animal intake

We recognize the urgency many people feel when they rescue a stray animal and want to help it but, unfortunately, our kennels are often full, so we cannot guarantee space.
