Canine Adoption Procedure

If you are interested in adopting a dog, please come to the shelter during our viewing hours, Tuesday-Saturday 11am-4pm to fill out an application form, you will need to provide a Photo ID and written permission from a landlord.

  1. All dogs that enter the Shelter have a Temperament Assessment. This determines what the requirements are for adoption, such as; Are they good with small children? Do they get along with cats and/or other dogs? How much activity/stimulation will they require?
  2. The SPCA staff will review all applicants and make decisions based on the date the application was received and the right home based on the findings of the assessment.
  3. If your application is chosen, you will be contacted and invited to the Shelter to meet your match and if you believe the match is a good one the adoption can proceed.
  4. It is important to know that even though you fill in an application you could be waiting for some time for a dog.
  5. All dog applications will require a property check to be completed by the Inspectorate Department.
  6. Please be patient with the SPCA, as we are trying to be as fair as possible.
