Virden Pet Network is...
...a friendly, small town pet rescue and registered charity. Our volunteers provide veterinary care, including mandatory spay / neuter, for pets in rescue. They are cared for in foster homes until their adoption into responsible, loving families. We also advocate in the community for spay / neuter, humane education, and compassion towards all animals.

Barn Buddies Still Available

Did you know anyone can apply to Virden Pet Network to adopt a free barn buddy cat?

These cats have been vet checked, dewormed, vaccinated and neutered. Most are too shy or skittish to be suitable as house pets, but they can do pest control on rural properties.

So if you'd like to adopt a barn buddy, click here for details.
