Adopt a dog from the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA
Thank you for taking the time to view our adoptable animals, our website is up to date with animals currently waiting for their forever homes. Did you know that the animals listed on our website are not the only animals we are caring for? The HBSPCA takes in unclaimed strays through Hamilton Animals Services, animals surrendered by their owners and also through our Protection Department. These animals are in need of veterinary care, grooming, socializing and many of them have been neglected or abandoned for quite some time. Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers are always up to the task and love each one of these animals as if they are their own. By choosing to make a lifetime commitment and adopting you are not only helping to give an animal in need a forever home, you are helping us to continue the cycle of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming.
Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!
As you may have heard we currently have 15 puppies in foster care that will soon be ready for adoption. A litter of 7 American Bulldog cross puppies (we don’t know what dad was) and 8 Mastiff Cane Corso cross puppies have been growing like crazy and can’t wait to be home for the holidays.
The puppies will remain in their foster homes until they are spayed and neutered and will be ready to go home with their perfect families Saturday December 16th.
If you are interested in adopting please note: the puppies will NOT be available for viewing at the shelter before adoption as they will be remaining in their foster homes until they are spayed/neutered. Applications will be accepted in person only at 245 Dartnall Road during adoption hours, up to and including December 12th. Please understand that we anticipate that we will be receiving upwards of 100 applications and only 15 will be chosen for adoption. Those matched with a puppy will be notified Thursday December 14th. Pick up times will be scheduled for Saturday December 16th between 10am and 4pm.
*Adopting a pet is a serious commitment and each and every family member should be involved in the application and adoption process. We will not be adopting out to anyone for the purposes of giving an animal as a gift.
Adoption is a feel-good way to become a pet owner.
