Surrendering Your Pet

Please note that all animals are being accepted by appointment. Call 519-966-5751 to book an appointment to surrender your pet.  

 

The Humane Society will not turn away an animal in need because of an owner’s financial situation. We depend on surrender fees to care for your pet, but surrender fees will be reduced upon request in cases of financial hardship.
