Big Lakes County’s Animal Care Facility provides care for dogs who were found astray, may not have an identified owner, or dogs who were surrendered to Big Lakes County. Dogs placed in the Animal Care Facility will stay for three days while our staff make every attempt to contact their owner. Dogs who have not been claimed after the allotted days become the property of the County and will be placed in the care of In The Woods Animal Rescue, or will remain at our Animal Care Facility and placed up for adoption.

If you wish to inquire about an adoptable dog in our care, please contact the Animal Care & Control Officer at 780-523-5955.
