Here are the steps to adopt an animal:


We will contact you to review the animal’s file together.


An appointment will be scheduled for you with an adoption counselor.


If the meeting is successful, the documents will be signed and the fees paid virtually or in person (the rates and programs are the same as usual).

To know :

  • We are very grateful that you want to adopt from a shelter.
  • We contact all the applications we receive.
  • We do not maintain a waiting list for future animals.
