You are welcome to show off a particular animal to your family and friends through Facebook, Twitter or email by clicking the “Share with a friend” button on the top of an animal’s profile page. Most importantly, have fun and fall in love with our adorable adoptables!

Regular Adoption vs. Managed Adoption and how to tell the difference.

Most of our animals are available through our regular adoption process of first come first serve – no appointment necessary! Sometimes we have animals that come in to CHS who have detailed medical or behaviour needs and require a very specific home. These animals are a ‘managed adoption’ which means, by appointment through our Adoption team. Often a behaviour or medical consultation will happen at the time of your visit to help set you and the animal up for success. To find out if the animal you are interested in is considered a managed adoption, check out their biography!

Coming Soon Animals

Notice an animal you are interested in adopting but their profile says they are ‘coming soon’ – not sure what it means? Basically it means the animal isn’t quite ready yet to be adopted. This can be for various reasons but most commonly, they are still on a legal hold in case an owner is looking for them. An animal that is listed as coming soon is still available to have visits and can be placed on hold for adoption with the stipulation that the adoption can’t be completed until the legal hold period is complete.

Interested in a Patient Paw dog, cat or rabbit?

pawbutton Patient Paw animals have spent a longer-than-average time in the shelter and they are excited to find the perfect family! Dogs are available for a minimum donation of $50 and cats and rabbits are no minimum donation.

Please note: Optional medical procedures and required behaviour classes are not included in Adoption by Donation price and must be paid for in full. Patient paw animals can be spotted in shelter by looking for the bright yellow paw print logo and are also listed as patient paw animals in their bios.
