The bond between human and animal is behind everything we do. This is what grounds us, inspires us, and pushes us well beyond our walls into more communities. As an adopter, you are bringing all of our work together. It all leads to this the incredible journey you are about to embark on.
How Adoption Works
Toronto Humane Society’s adoption process is set up with one goal in mind: matching the right people with the right animals. We don’t just want to find homes, we want to help build families and further the human-animal bond in our community.
It is for this reason that the process has several steps. It begins with you finding an animal on our website. Then you get set up with an Adoption Counsellor where we get to know a little more about you and what you’re looking for. Once we are at a stage to meet some pets there will be a Meet and Greet, where you’ll get to meet the animal and learn everything there is to know about them. Finally, the Adoption is finalized and your shared journey begins.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Toronto Humane Society has been operating solely through virtual adoptions. We will be opening for onsite adoptions Tuesday, September 14th while maintaining some virtual appointment availability. Please note there may be a higher than normal attendance and a reduced building capacity to follow Covid-19 safety protocols that may cause delays. Please refer to the process noted below to ensure we are able to serve you as best we can.
Monday – Friday 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Saturday – Sunday 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM
