Can you believe that we are FINALLY into Summer – okay, maybe the official date isn’t until June 21, but the weather has really started to make a brave face of sun and blue skies!
As schools let out, employers start granting far more vacation days than they’d admittedly want to, and the dog trails become more populated than usual…we wanted to share with you a few events coming up this summer that are promising to be amazing!
Whether you’re looking to attend an adoption event to potentially meet that new furry family member, or want to come out to fun social activities and support this group, we have a full summer of fun planned!
Having so much on the go, we can definitely use some volunteers! So if you’re interested please contact our Volunteer & Events Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org and Cortney will make sure you get a volunteer application.
Want to foster instead? Send an email to email@example.com and we’ll put our Foster Coordinator in touch with you!

CaliCan Gets Schooled! – Lee Ridge Elementary School
We were so honored to be asked by one of our adoptive families if we would be interested in her class doing a social responsibility – they would plan an entire activity to support us! So on June 27, we and a pup or 2, will be visiting this amazing group of kids and show them what they helped achieve!
Hosted and organized by Melinda & Duke, and of course Melinda’s class!

CaliCan’s DOGumentary at Grandin Theatres – 101-22 Sir Winston Churchill, St. Albert
Were you unable to attend the original premiere of the exciting DOGumentary shot and produced by Wingnut Studios of Edmonton? That’s okay!! We will be giving everybody a second chance to come out and see it. Instead of showing a feature film to start, we will play the DOGumentary at the top of each hour and open the floor to questions after wards!

The Scruffies and Fluffies will be available to meet and put in an application for! So come on down and visit with us and their foster homes to find out how you can possibly adopt one of these little cutie-pies!
We are currently still planning this month – but one highlight is the opportunity to attend at Fortis Alberta once again!! We will also likely have another flight happen, depending on how many of the Summer Pups are still looking for their Furever Home.
