Frequently Asked Questions

If I surrender my pet to the HBSPCA, can you guarantee that my pet will be adopted?

Provided your pet doesn’t pose any severe risk to humans or other animals, it will remain at the HBSPCA until we find it a loving home. Unfortunately, however, we can’t guarantee that your pet won’t develop serious behavioural or medical issues after being surrendered. To allow us to place your pet in a suitable home, it’s extremely important that you disclose all information about your animal’s health, behaviour and history when you surrender it to us. Rest assured that we work very hard with other shelters to place pets with difficult issues before making any decisions regarding euthanasia.
