If you are interested in Adopting, you can come to Burlington Humane on Tuesday through Saturday between 10 am – 5pm. To speed up the adoption process you can complete the adoption application ahead of time by clicking the links below.
After your interview with the Adoption Counsellors, if they feel you are able to move forward in the process, they will take you in to meet our animals. We ask that all members of the family come together to your appointment, and if you have a pet carrier (for a cat) or leash (for a dog), please bring that along as well. All applicants must be fully vaccinated (Children between the ages of 5-11 must have had at least their first shot) to enter Burlington Humane.
Come into Burlington Humane and fill in an adoption application and talk with our Adoption Counsellor.
Although it is not required, you may want to bring a copy of your current or previous pet’s veterinary records.
If you are intending to adopt a cat, have a Pet Carrier or a leash if you are intending to adopt a dog.
All members of the family are attending
Have Proof of vaccination and ID. Children between the ages of 5-11 must have had at least their first shot to enter Burlington Humane.
** 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, please come with two or three cats in mind to meet, in the event that you are able to move forward in the process and meet with our animals. 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. **
You can keep track of animals available for adoption on our YouTube channel, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you for choosing to adopt. Due to a shortage of dogs and puppies available for adoption, there is a rise the number of puppy mills, particularly overseas.
