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.

2024 01 26 male cat 2

Dog Name

Felix

About Me

Felix is a tom cat who came in with Oscar. They don't seem to be very fond of each other however, they look nearly identical! There may be some shared DNA in there! Felix has one ear partially missing, likely due to frost bite, but it doesn't seem to phase him! He would make a great barn cat or house cat, given the opportunity for either!

About Me

Oscar is a tom cat who has been around the block a few times and has the scars to prove it! He would make an excellent barn cat and mouser. He has an old wound on his shoulder that is scabbed over but is mostly healed already. We will be giving him some TLC and he should be ready for a new home!
