Join the Surrey Animal Resource Centre (SARC) for a festive and heart-warming weekend of happy endings as shelter animals find their forever homes. Whether you are looking for an addition to your family or just love animals, this event is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit with:

  • Christmas goodies;
  • Free teddy bear adoptions for the kids; and
  • A special guest from the North Pole!

This event will also showcase the new additions to our adoption areas. Spend time with adoptable animals in our new adoption room or enjoy time in the play yards with the shelter dogs under the new gazebos.

About No Fee Adoptions

SARC is joining many other forward-thinking shelters across the nation who have introduced no fee adoption events with the motive to increase adoptions, reduce length of stay in the shelter and create opportunities to take in more animals in need.

Research has shown that there is no connection between what someone pays for a pet and how much they love or value them. According to a study published in the Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science, people who adopted with waived fees had the same degree of attachment as those who paid fees.

“Our goal is to find the animals in our care a home for the holidays. An increase in adoptions creates more opportunity to help even more animals in need.” explains Shelter Manager Shelley Joaquin. “Our adoption matching process will remain the same to ensure it is a good environment for the animal and a good match for the person.”

Don’t miss out on a no fee adoption and a chance to meet your new best friend at the SARC Home Fur the Holidays event!
