About Us

Bandaged Paws Animal Rescue is a primarily volunteer run, registered charitable organization and non-profit in Grande Prairie, AB. Our focus is to help injured, homeless, abandoned, or otherwise in need animals find permanent and loving homes.  We focus on dogs and cats from our community as well as northern Alberta and surrounding areas.

We receive no government funding and rely entirely on the generosity of public donations and fundraising efforts. Most of our animals are in foster care but we do have a safe haven facility that has restricted public access for the health and safety of our animals.  

We strive to help as many animals as possible and better the community in the process by encouraging positive interactions between humans and animals and promoting responsible ownership including spay/neuter, vaccinating and microchipping.

Important Note: 

Adoptable cats in our facility can only be visited during our public hours. You can also visit with our cats in Petsmart, both Pet Valu locations & the Whiskers Cat Cafe during their set business hours.

Adoptable dogs in our facility can only be visited by appointment (see below for booking info). If you are looking to adopt a specific dog in the facility or in foster care, you can do so by filling out an application here and you will be contacted to schedule a meet & greet.

Visiting with Dogs in Our Facility

If you are looking to visit dogs in our facility, we ask that you book an appointment to do so.

The facility is a busy place and we strive to reduce the stress on the animals as much as we can. Minimizing foot traffic in the dog area is one of the ways we can reduce stress as it reduces disruptions to the dogs allowing for a calmer environment overall. 

If you already have a specific dog in mind that you want to meet, you don't need to book an appointment. You can fill out an application on our website and we will get in touch to arrange a meet and greet with that specific dog. 

*Appointments are for viewing multiple dogs in the facility only*
