Animals in this category are available for adoption.  

These animals arrived at the Pound for various reasons. Most were strays, some were abandoned, others have interesting stories. Because no one has come forward to claim the animal it is now available to be legally adopted to a new owner.

If you are interested in adopting a pet from us, please come to the Pound & Adoption Centre to meet them in person.

Once you have chosen a pet, you will be required to complete an adoption application. The application consists of questions that will help us determine whether you will be a suitable owner for the animal you are applying for. If you are a renter, we will need to contact your landlord to confirm that you are allowed to bring a pet into your home.

The Adoption Coordinator will review your application and if you are approved you can take your new best friend home with you. Please note it is unlikely that your application will be processed same day. It generally takes 24-48 hours to process an application. Of course, there is always an adoption fee and if you are adopting a dog, you will also be required to purchase him/her a dog licence. We accept cash, debit and VISA.

The standard adoption fee for a dog is $275. Adults cats are $210 and kittens are $250. All adoptable animals are spayed or neutered and microchipped.

Your signature is required on the Adoption Contract because you will be making a serious commitment to care and keep the animal in a humane, ethical, responsible and lawful manner for the rest of its life.

We do our best to create a safe and comfortable environment for animals to live in at the Pound & Adoption Centre, but as good as it is, it isn't a home - we need you to provide that!

NACS has no time limit on how long we will keep an animal before it is adopted.

Adoption viewing hours are Monday - Friday, 10:00am - 4:00pm and 10:00am - 3:00pm on Saturdays.

The following animals are just lounging around . . . waiting . . . for YOU!
