Animal Adoption Information

Animal Adoption Information

All animals admitted to the Animal Control Centre receive quality care. All animals are checked for obvious signs of disease and if required, treated by the Humane Services Shelter veterinarian.
 
Animals that are impounded, of suitable temperament, and not claimed by their owners within a five-day period may be offered for adoption. If you are looking for a pet, visit us at the Humane Services Shelter. A listing of animals that are looking for permanent homes can also be found on our website.
 
As part of the adoption process you will be required to fill in either a cat adoption questionnaire or a dog adoption questionnaire.
