Adopting an animal can be a rewarding experience

The District of Sparwood is dedicated to finding safe and happy forever homes for all animals in our pound that have been left unclaimed after 144 hours (6 days).

An Animal Adoption Fee Bid Form will be made available when an animal is ready for adoption. Interested adoptees (i.e. applicants) will be required to complete and submit the form by the closing date to be considered. When the closing date/time passes, all forms will be opened and reviewed.  The applicant with the highest proposed adoption fee (i.e. “bid”) will be given the opportunity to complete the adoption process for the specified animal.

    We encourage you to take your adopted pet to your veterinarian within 3 days of purchase to have it examined.  The Animal Control Officer does not knowingly adopt out unhealthy animals, however, it is possible that animals may have been exposed to diseases and have not shown symptoms while in our care.


    There are currently no pets available for adoption. Please remember to licence your pet, so we can help your lost pet get home.
