Grande Prairie Regional Animal Care Facility continues Interim Animal Care Services
Posted Date: 7/24/2017

In light of the Grande Prairie & District SPCAs (GPSPCA) announcement of its permanent closure, the Grande Prairie Regional Animal Care Facility (GPRACF) will continue to provide animal shelter and adoption services until permanent arrangements are in place. GPRACF has been in operation since June 27, 2016.

“The County of Grande Prairie thanks the Grande Prairie & District SPCA for their 45 years of dedicated service in providing humane shelter services for animals in need and serving as a hub for animal adoptions to our community,” said County of Grande Prairie Reeve Leanne Beaupre.

Existing staff from the Grande Prairie Regional Animal Pound will continue delivering three separate animal care services out of the existing building and garage, including Pound Services, Adoption Services and Animal Shelter Services. 

The GPRACF will also continue to work with community partners including Petland, Bear Creek Animal Clinic and Grande Prairie Regional College, as well as the Edmonton Humane Society to ensure the safe and humane care, adoption and shelter of displaced animals.

“We appreciate how important animal care and adoption service are to our community. Over the last 13 months, this partnership has worked together to ensure those services are maintained and we are committed to ensuring that a permanent solution is found,” said City of Grande Prairie Mayor Bill Given.

Animals up for adoption are featured on the Grande Prairie Regional Animal Care Facebook page at www.facebook.com/gpracf. For further information about Facility services, including adoption rates and hours of operation, visit www.countygp.ab.ca/animalcare.
