What To Expect When Adopting

If you're considering adopting an animal from the Ontario SPCA, or have already adopted a pet, browse our collection of adoption tip sheets for information about everything from choosing the right companion to teaching your pet (in a positive way!) the behaviours you'd like to see more - or less often. 

Careful consideration before adopting, including research and planning, plus plenty of love, patience and a sense of humor, will foster a strong and loving relationship that will make you friends for life! 

Our trained and experienced counselors will guide you and you new family member through the first few days and the many more to come. Our Staff are always available for follow up. For more information on adoption, contact your local Adoption Centre.
