Special Orders for Pet Food
Due to limited space we are not able to keep all types and sizes of food in stock. We are happy to order items in on a SPECIAL ORDER basis. If you could let us know on or before Monday-especially if we have a holiday Monday- and we order on Tuesday and items should arrive on Wednesday unless there is an issue with the supplier. We can let you know when your item has arrived. Please call ahead if you have not heard from us to make sure your items has arrived. There are sometimes delays that are out of our control such as truck break down or bad weather or items on back order.
***You may be asked to pre-pay for your item or pay a deposit because we have had some folks order items and then change their minds and not pick them up and we are then charged a restocking fee to return items.
We appreciate your cooperation!
Volunteer & play with the cats…
Since the shelter opened on a small scale in 1988 we have trusted the assistance of many volunteers in our county. Many of our volunteers have gone on to careers in the medical or science fields, including veterinary medicine. Each and every volunteer has had the unique opportunity to expand their hearts and minds at the shelter.
We encourage anyone who wants to volunteer with our organization to please come in and discuss the opportunities…. or just come for a visit.
Star cat: Lulu
female spayed, DMH, black and white, born approx. April 2012. This sweet girl was brought to us via Animal Control from the Kentville area. She has a cute little white mustache.
The people that make us possible:
Purina Veterinary Diets

Wolfville Animal Hospital
Numerous other volunteers that help us with animals and fundraising, etc.
We are in need of the following items: Paper Towels, HE laundry soap, dish detergent, white vinegar, bleach, cat toys, small pet blankets, small litter pans, plastic coin rollers. Cash donations are always welcome and can help provide such things as vaccinations, food and medical care.
If anyone has extra yarn and would like to donate it to our wonderful lady that makes the catnip mice it would be greatly appreciated.
