our

good home guarantee

The Humane Society is proud to be able to offer a “Good Home Guarantee” to every adoptable animal who comes through our doors. The guarantee is our promise that we will find them a home, and that no adoptable pet will be put down. We never euthanize an animal due to space or because they have been here “too long”. We only use euthanasia as a compassionate decision when an animal is suffering from a severe medical or behavioural condition or is a danger to other animals or people. In many cases, our medical team or behaviour staff can work with an ‘unadoptable’ animal to bring them to a point where they are able to move into our adoption program or be transferred to a special needs rescue and find a forever home.

 

We are also able to help other organizations who have more dogs than they can handle by accepting dogs from them. The dogs may be from nearby shelters, or from many miles away. In all cases the dogs are only accepted when we know that we can find homes for them, and they never will displace a “local” dog from the adoption program.
