Pet Paradise in Banff
Family holidays just aren’t complete without the presence of their little furry family members. Understanding this, the Douglas Fir Resort is happy to provide comfortable lodging for all of your family members in our special ‘pet-friendly’ rooms.
As we pay extra special attention to our pet-friendly rooms there is a small pet charge of $25 per a pet, per a day to cover additional cleaning costs. However, as we don’t want to forget the pets out there that don’t have families, the Douglas Fir Resort & Chalets is now donating 5% of these pet fees to the Bow Valley SPCA.
The Douglas Fir Resort is proud to support the Bow Valley SPCA in their mission is to provide our community with an adoption centre following a no kill, no cage philosophy to shelter, care for and re-home stray and abandoned dogs and cats. What does this no kill, no cage philosophy mean?
The Banff SPCA Adoption Centre's design is based on the organization's no-kill philosophy: saving both adoptable (healthy and free of serious behavioral problems) and treatable (medical treatment or behavioral training) dogs and cats, regardless of age or disability.
Euthanasia is considered only as a last resort for dogs and cats that are terminally ill or suffering intractable pain, as well as dogs proven dangerous to people or other dogs.
All dogs and cats are housed in rooms rather than cages or kennel runs. This reduces the stress of being housed in an adoption centre; however, it also decreases the number of animals that can be housed in our facility.
In addition, the shelter seeks to promote humane attitudes and responsible pet companionship through educational programs and community leadership. What an incredible cause!
