The Shelter also offers a Private Boarding Facility, a safe haven for your dog while you are on vacation.

Pet Pantry

In the spirit of giving the Coquitlam Animal Shelter presents the Pet Pantry. The shelter supports keeping pets and their families together. Through the generosity of the community, we can offer excess food to those in need. Please contact the Shelter to learn more and arrange a time to pick up food.
