 COVID-19 Preparedness

Keep at least a two-week supply of pet food and water for your pets, as well as any medication they may need and a travel crate properly labeled with your pet’s name and your contact information.

Identify trusted family or friends who can care for your pets: Have at least three options lined up in case they become sick or hospitalized. Ensure you have spoken with these individuals before you consider them as an option.

Include your name and contact information, your pet’s feeding schedule, any medical conditions and treatment instructions. Document your pet’s vaccination status, and list the contact information for your veterinarian.

Fill out your Pet Information Sheet.

New Adoption Procedures

If you would like to adopt an animal, please complete our online Adoption Application.  We are currently only accepting applications from residents of Halton Region.  Once you fill out an adoption application, our Adoption Counsellors will be contacting those applicants who they feel are the best fit for our animals.  Those who do not get a call back, it does not mean we don’t feel you are a good pet owner, it simply means that there are applicants who are a better fit.  Our first priority is to the health and safety of the animals in our care.  If the Adoption Counsellor feels that you are able to move forward in the process, they will schedule a meeting for you to come in and meet our animals.

** If you are interested in a cat, please check our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube pages featuring videos of available cats for more information on each cat’s personality and needs.  When you have an appointment to meet our animals, please come with two or three cats in mind to meet.  You can then meet those specific cats so you can make your own judgement on their personalities. Please also continually check the website before your appointment to ensure the cat you want to meet is still available for adoption. **

Cat Adoption Application

You can keep track of animals available for adoption on our YouTube channel, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.  We will post dog adoption applications when we have dogs available for adoption.  Thank you for your understanding.


Please note that all animals available for adoption are listed on our website.
