Adoption Policy

The Caledon Animal Shelter has an Adoption Application process for all dogs and cats.

Dog Adoption

If you are interested in adopting a dog listed on our website you will be required to meet the dog and speak with a member of our staff prior to completing an application. To schedule an appointment for your 'Meet & Greet' please call 905-584-2272 x4698 or toll free at 1-888-225-3366 x4698. Appointments will only be scheduled up to a maximum of 5 days in advance. The Caledon Animal Shelter may contact you to cancel your appointment if the dog is adopted out prior to your scheduled Meet & Greet. We do not hold.  

Applications must be submitted in person, after meeting the dog, and are not made available online.

Anyone applying to adopt a dog with an existing dog in the home will also be required to bring their dog in to do an on leash introduction. In order to bring your dog to the shelter for a 'Meet & Greet' we will require a copy of your dog's current vaccination records. Please call in advance for an appointment 905.584-2272 x4698.

Cat Adoption

If you are interested in adopting a cat please feel free to come in anytime during our Adoption Hours – no appointments are necessary, however, we do highly recommend calling prior to coming in to ensure the cat you are interested in is still available at that time.

Applications must be completed after meeting the cat you are interested in adopting and cannot be completed online or through email.

Our Adoption Hours are as follows:

Monday, Wednesday & Friday 11:00a.m.-4:00p.m.
Tuesday & Thursday 11:00a.m.-6:00p.m.
Saturday 11:00a.m.-2:00p.m.

Please be aware that in order to place our animals in the home best suited to them, all applications are subject to review. The Corporation of the Town of Caledon reserves the right to deny any requests for adoption for any reason in the Town's sole discretion.

All of our dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption (with the exception of kittens & puppies). When you adopt a dog or cat your are also entitled to a free medical exam and 10% off of vaccinations (when required). This offer is valid at participating veterinary clinics only and must be redeemed within two weeks of the date of adoption.
