Love is in the Air Adoption Event

February 11, 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Love is in the Air at the Guelph Humane Society!

Come join us at our onsite Love is in the Air Adoption Event taking place from February 10-11, 2023 where we will have dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and reptiles who are looking for their forever home and are waiting to meet you!

This event will be on a drop-in basis. Anyone looking to adopt a pet is encouraged to come in and meet the animals who are looking for their adoptive family on Friday or Saturday. Each household will have 30 minutes to come in and visit with our animals. If you meet your match, you will be directed to speak with a staff member regarding their adoption!

If you plan to attend the event, we encourage attendees to print and complete an application, and bring this with you to the event (one application per household).

• Dog Adoption Application

• Cat Adoption Application

 Small Animal Adoption Application

Please note our adoptions website is updated in live-time to reflect all animals currently available for adoption. If there is an animal that you are interested in adopting, we encourage you to attend the event as we will be unable to hold animals, and adoptions at the event will be prioritized. As of Wednesday February 8 at 12:00 PM, any applications submitted on Adopets will be reviewed beginning Tuesday February 14, if the animal is still available.

• Limit of 2 members per household. To be mindful of social distancing and the health & safety of our staff, animals and community, we ask that only 2 members per household attend the adoption event. However, please ensure all household members agree with the adoption of an animal prior to attending the event.

• If you hope to adopt a cat or small animal, please bring a pet carrier with you to the event. If you do not have a carrier, you will be required to purchase a take-home carrier from the shelter (while quantities last) in order to take your pet home. Cats and small animals will not be allowed to leave the shelter unless secured in a proper pet carrier.
