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.




All adoptable animals are spayed or neutered, microchipped, dewormed, deflead, vaccinated, and come with 6 weeks of free pet insurance and a Welcome Package from Island Vet.

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.

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

Due to COVID-19, our adoption process has changed. Please do not come to the pound unless you have an appointment. If you are interested in adopting an animal posted below, please email us at and we will send you a fillable application form. Approved applicants will be invited to meet the animal.
Thank you for your understanding!

This page is kept up to date. If there are no animals listed below, we do not have anyone available for adoption.

These two handsome gentlemen were abandoned and are now looking for a new place to call home. If you are interested in adding a rooster to your flock please email us at

We believe the larger rooster (Dorking) is quite brave and social, while the smaller one (Faverolle) is clearly used to being less dominant and prefers to follow the lead of the larger one.
