Sault Ste. Marie Humane Society

Adoption Information

If you are considering a four-legged addition to your family, the shelter is a great place to start your search. As the shelter takes in more than 1,500 animals each year, there is sure to be a good fit for everyone!

The shelter strongly encourages all family members be a part of the decision making process, especially families with young children. You may choose a pet that responds well to Mom and/or Dad, but may not respond so favourably to children. Being that many of the pets we have available for adoption come to us with little or no background information, we may not know exactly how they will fit in before bringing them home.

Our dog adoptions are not done on a "first-come-first-served" basis, but instead we review all applications to find the home that will best suit their needs.



Dogs aged under 8 years are $260 to adopt.

*Cats & dogs spayed/neutered through SPCA - the surgeries for these pets are funded through donation and fundraising dollars at a minimum cost of $250 and can be as much as $600.00 in some cases. Therefore the $175 (dogs) or $90 (cats) portion of the fee is non-refundable to help offset the expenses we incur for spay and neuter. This is a huge savings for the adopter as you would otherwise be paying the full cost of spay/neuter post adoption!
