At Etobicoke Humane Society, we believe that every dog deserves a second chance. Our dogs have so much love to give with your help building their trust and confidence.

Each dog is unique, some love to explore the outdoors while some enjoy resting their heads in your lap while being pet. To find the dog best suited for you, your family lifestyle and other pets at home, we encourage potential adopters to review each available dog’s profile below. After reading the description and criteria for the dog you are interested in, please come visit the dog during our daily visiting hours, as that is the first step in the adoption process.

Please also visit our special dogs – They are keen to meet you and show you how much love they have to give. We have invested in these dogs because we believe that with the right adopters, they can become happy family dogs.

Daily Visiting Hours:

10:30AM to 11:30AM
1:30PM to 4:30PM

It is recommended that you call (416) 249-6100 on the day you wish to visit to check that the dog will be available for viewing.

Adoption Fees

Dogs coming into the shelter often experience stress as they adjust to their new environment. We do our best to alleviate this anxiety and create a comfortable and peaceful environment for them. As much as we would like to welcome everyone, only visitors who are interested in potentially adopting a dog are permitted to visit the dogs. There are times that we may also have to limit the number of visitors a dog may have to reduce their stress.

If you have questions about the dog, our adoption process or need to arrange a appointment to visit please contact the adoption coordinator listed on the dog’s posting.

After meeting the dog, if you are interested and meet the required adoption criteria, please complete the online Dog Adoption Form. The dog’s adoption coordinator will then contact you to discuss the next steps. Please keep in mind that there are often numerous applicants for one dog so the sooner you apply the better. We appreciate your patience as we work through the adoption process.
