Despite the snow earlier today, autumn is upon us, and we've got a few cool things to share with you. After closing our doors to intakes for a couple of months in the summer due to an enormous vet bill, we were able to raise close to $8,000 in July and August, thanks to all of you!

To continue keeping our bills in check, we are hosting a Fall Fundraiser this Saturday and Sunday, September 13th and 14th, from 9 am to 5 pm. It is a yard sale, bake sale, and adoptables meet and greet. We will have some cute doggies looking for their forever homes, as well as some kittens! We are also raffling off a pair of tickets to anywhere WestJet flies and a Rockin' Party for Eight (8) at The Rock Wood Fired Pizza and Spirits in Edmonton. The address of the event is 6118 132 Avenue NW. You can check out the event page on FaceBook here.

In other news, we have entered into a partnership with The Dog House Daycare in Edmonton, who is allowing us to use their facility to host some much needed training classes for our foster dogs. They are offering 10% off daycare packages to all of our adopters too! If you have previously adopted an AROS dog and would like your coupon for 10% off, please email us.

Lastly, one of our directors happens to be a fabulous dog trainer and behavior consultant and is offering an Obedience Boot Camp starting this Saturday, September 13th, for 8 weeks. She is donating 10% of her class fees to AROS and still has a couple of spots left to fill. For more information, please check out Anything's Pawsible, or email Casi directly, at
