The Kitchener Waterloo Animal Centre was built in 1981 and is located on Riverbend Drive in Kitchener. It features a winding hallway through the building, leading to our adoption atrium. Our spacious “cat condos” are different from the traditional cat cages one would typically see in a shelter. They provide ample space for our cats to move around, play and climb onto platforms. Not to mention, a big glass window to meet their forever family for the first time!

Our dog pods at the back of the building exit onto a grass area and a trail system on the property. Thanks to our wonderful volunteer dog walkers, our dogs get to enjoy a big outdoor leash free park and the wooded trails on a regular basis! 

Stop by to visit the centre and learn more about our organization!
