You can search online to view animals available for adoption or visit the Clarington Animal Shelter.

Adoption hours are Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Adoption fees

Adopt a dog: $95
Adopt a cat: $130

If cats/kittens are too young to be spayed or neutered, a $75 rebate certificate is provided once owners bring in proof of the above procedure within 120 days from the date of adoption.

Both cats and dogs are micro-chipped and have a first vaccine. You will receive a free Clarington municipal licence and 30 days of shelter care pet insurance.

Meet and greet

We encourage all family members, including dogs, to participate in the meet and greet portion of the adoption process to ensure your chosen pet is the right fit for the entire family. We would have you meet the dog of interest first and bring your dog back for a second visit.

Thanks to our donors
