Whitecourt Lost and Found Pets

The Whitecourt Vet Clinic and Pet Valu in Whitecourt, are excited to announce that Pet Valu will start fostering ‘some’ cats for the Clinic at Pet Valu. So when you read up on our available adoptions from here on out, please pay attention to whether the cat posted, will be at the Whitecourt Vet Clinic, or at Pet Valu in Whitecourt.

The majority of our cats will still be stuck in small cages at the Clinic, so PLEASE do remember them, as always, and continue to come for them for adoptions. But here and there a cat, or cat’s will have the opportunity to go to Pet Valu in Whitecourt, to be adopted there. They are still the Whitecourt Vet Clinic’s cats but will have the opportunity to meet more people and might have a tad bit more freedom as they wait to be adopted. And we sure hope both the cat’s at Pet Valu and at the Clinic will continue to get adopted sooner rather than later, as no one is ever truly free and happy until they are in their new loving home. The cat/s at Pet Valu also will still spend a big portion of their time there, in a cage, so real freedom is only when they get to go to a loving home.

So continue to come meet all our cat’s and adopt them from the Whitecourt Vet Clinic, either right at the Clinic, or at Pet Valu. Young kittens will always be at the Whitecourt Vet Clinic due to vaccine policies, but regardless of who is in which facility, please come adopt all.

We are looking forward to this new adventure for us and the cat’s, and hope this will simply help our cat’s find homes even faster, and as always, loving safe forever homes.

Angry Customer defaces property at a local business.
‎Megan Reuteman‎ to Whitecourt and Area Rant And Rave

RANT: To the guy who came to our store, threw a fit and felt the need to do this before he left. Give your head a shake. Very rude and inconsiderate.
Yes, we charge a flat rate. But what we don’t do is force you to have to get your bottle filled at our store. It’s your choice to go somewhere else if you don’t like it.
It was absolutely unnecessary to get mad at the employee who is just doing his job and totally uncalled for vandalizing our property because you don’t like our policy.
Please don’t come back.
