ANIMALS 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.

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 animal.shelter@nanaimo.ca and we will send you a fillable application form. Approved applicants will be invited to meet the animal. Thank you for your understanding!

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 VCA 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.

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

Jack

This is Jack!

Jack is a male terrier mix approximately 7-8 years old. Jack likes zooming around the yard and playing with toys. He still has a bunch of energy to burn as well as benefiting from burning a couple of pounds. We found Jack to be a bit shy and nervous at first but warmed up to us in a couple of days. He now prefers to hangout in the office with us, or following us around. Houdini should be his real name as he’s very much an esc ape artist, so a fully fenced yard and consistent supervision would be the best benefit to him. He doesn’t like other dogs but did live with a cat previously. We are looking for a home that has dog experience that can work with his anxieties. Jack needs a home with lots of love and lots of patience.

Jacks adoption fee is $250 and he is neutered, microchipped, dewormed, deflead, and vaccinated. He comes with a Welcome Package from VCA Island Vet as well as six weeks of free pet insurance from Petsecure. If you are interested in adopting Jack, please email us at animal.shelter@nanaimo.ca and we will email you a fillable application form. The successful applicant will be invited to come in
