Adopting a pet

Come to the Centre to meet some of our spay/neutered, vaccinated, permanently identified adoptable pets. We'll help you find an animal that matches your lifestyle and completes your family.

Contact the Surrey Animal Resource Centre at 604-574-6622 for more information on adoption.

Adoption Hours: Daily, 11 am to 5:30 pm

We want to see all of our homeless animals adopted to folks who've thought long and hard about what kind of animal is right for their situation, and who've committed to providing

  • Good nutrition,
  • Regular veterinary care, and
  • Mental and physical stimulation appropriate to the individual animal.

Donating to the animals

If you'd like to help out the animals at the centre, there are many items they'd love:

  • Kuranda Animal Beds- Donate a bed and give the gift of comfort to a shelter dog or cat. 
  • Dogs – high quality wet and dry food, beds, blankets, tough toys like Kongs, food dispensing toys like Buster Cubes, martingale collars and EZ walk and Sensi harnesses.
  • Cats – high quality wet and dry food ,scratching posts and toys, cuddly beds, interactive toys.
  • Small Animals – fresh greens (and a small fridge to keep them in!), little critter houses, chew toys.
  • Birds – cages and accessories, small glass tea light holders (for bird grit).

We'd also love bleach, laundry detergent, dish soap and hand soap.
