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 3,000 animals in a year, there is sure to be a pet to please everyone's taste. Browse the photo's on line and then make a trip to the shelter to visit in person - sometimes what you think you want in a pet changes when you interact with them. 

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 or most 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.

All dog adoptions are done by an application process where we collect a few towards each dog to try to place them in the home that best suits their needs.

Small Critter Adoption Questionaire


*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 $90 (dogs) or $60 (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!
