The Coquitlam Animal Shelter is closed to the public. Adoption services, the Rescue Readers Program and any Animal Shelter tours will be suspended until further notice. If you need to drop off or pick up an animal from the Animal Shelter, please call 604-927-7386 to speak to a staff member about how to safely facilitate the exchange.

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:

  1. Date and time your group would be interested in coming for a tour;
  2. 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. 
  3. Tours for community groups and schools are generally around 30-45 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.
