If you’re interested in adopting a pet follow these steps…

Contactless Adoption Process:

1) View the pets below by clicking on their name. Please ensure you read their adorable description and all their important details.

2) Choose the pet that you feel would be a good match for your home.

3) Fill out an Adoption Application Form below, and email adoptions@guelphhumane.ca. Please remember that an animal may receive many applications. If this pet doesn’t work out, we will try to match you with another amazing pet.

4) Our team will reach out to you to discuss the next steps, including setting up a virtual adoption meeting via Zoom or other video conferencing. This is a great opportunity for us to assess if the pet is a perfect match for your home/family. These meetings can be scheduled 7 days a week during shelter operation hours.

5) If everything goes well, we will set-up a pick-up time and your new pet gets to come home!

If you have any questions regarding the contactless adoption process please call 519-824-3091. Please note that we can only accept Adoption Application Forms for animals available for adoption on the GHS website. Due to limited resources, we are unable to accept generic Adoption Application Forms or keep an ongoing waitlist of adopters- however we encourage you to keep checking the website frequently for your new family member!
