The Crowsnest Pass SPCA is a registered charitable organization with Alberta SPCA Approved Status. The main aim of the SPCA is to care for homeless or abandoned animals and place them into homes which are appropriate for each individual animal. The SPCA has an “open environment” allowing cats to roam freely in a home-type atmosphere. There are heated runs and a large play yard for the dogs. Primarily volunteer based, caregivers are available 7 days per week to clean, feed, walk and care for the animals in the shelter.
