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.

Featured Pet


Baloo, the catI am a love bug that seeks attention. If you also like petting, purrs, and paws kneading your lap, we might have a lot in common. I'm looking for someone who enjoys quiet time and togetherness.

Unfortunately, I have recently been diagnosed with Diabetes. I came to the shelter as a stray, so the staff don’t have any medical history for me. We are still working out which medications will work best for me. I’m hoping that to find a wonderful person to help me continue with my vet visits. Right now, we are trying a pill form of medication but I will need another blood test to see if it is helping or not.

I don't mean to brag but I really truly am a special cat with so much love to give. If you would like to know more about me, please speak to one of the staff members.
