Animal Shelter

Our Facility

We invite you to visit the Coquitlam Animal Shelter to meet the animals that we have available for adoption. The Shelter also offers a Private Boarding Facility, a safe haven for your dog while you are on vacation. 


The Shelter can arrange tours to meet your needs and requirements. To arrange a tour, call the Shelter in advance with:

  • Date and time your group would be interested in coming for a tour
  • Number of people in your group. We limit the number of visitors to 15 to accommodate the size of the shelter, and to not overwhelm the animals

Tours for community groups and schools are generally around 30 to 45 minutes and must be scheduled, so we can work within the staff and animals schedules.

Parking at the Shelter

Shelter parking is available in front of the shelter for two-hour lengths of stay. If you intend to stay for more than two hours, please park your vehicle across the street from the shelter in places marked as Visitor Parking.

Shelter Dog Viewing

Staff at the counter will be happy to give you information on the dogs we have up for adoption. If there is a dog you feel would be suitable for your family and would like to consider adopting, we will bring them out to our meeting area for a visit. This keeps a calm environment for the dogs in the kennel area.
