We adopt our animals out to homes through a screening process which is as follows:
1. You visit the shelter and meet the animal you'd like to adopt.
2. You request an adoption application, you may fill it out in the shelter or you may take it home and bring it to us when complete.
3. After submitting your application, we take 24 to 48hrs to review the application before contacting you where we may require more information to determine whether your application is approved or denied.
These animals are not items simply placed for purchase. We have a mission here, and take every precatuion to ensure that these animals go to homes where they will continue to recieve regular care and veterinary care, from loving and responsible owners for their forseeable futures.
All dogs, regardless of age, are available for adoption for $292.50 - please remember this fee includes a city tag if you reside in Elliot Lake, and helps offset the cost of vaccines, surgeries, unexpected or emergency medical expenses, and the cost of regular animal care expenses.
LilyGirl is a female Collie mix. She is believed to be 11 years old, and has been at our shelter since April 8th, 2019. LilyGirl was brought to us by the Missisauga First Nations Bylaw after she had been discovered on the side of the highway, presumably hit by a vehicle. She was brought into Elliot Lake to see a veterinarian, and then brought to our shelter where we conducted a mandatory 72hr hold while searching for her owner. The post on our Facebook page reached over 800 shares in 24hrs, and the owner did contact us where she made the decision to surrender LilyGirl.
LilyGirl has since received her vaccinations, been flea and worm treated, and spayed. She has also been found intcontinent which means she may require medication for the duration of her life. She will also need to have dentistry done as her teeth are in very poor condition. We have noticed she prefers soft food over hard food. She has a very patient and mild temperment. She loves attention and recieving affection. She sits politely while visiting with you. She likes other dogs, but we are not sure about cats. This sweet girl needs a home that will be able to provide her with the necessary medical care in addition to being responsible and loving pet owners.
All cats, regardless of age, are available for adoption for $216.95 - please remember this fee includes a city tag if you reside in Elliot Lake, and helps offset the cost of vaccines, surgeries, unexpected or emergency medical expenses, and the cost of regular animal care expenses.
Bella is a female torti. She is approximately 5 years old and has been at the shelter since September 27th2018. She came to us as a surrender and based on her past information we know she does not like dogs. Bella can also be moody with the other cats in the common area, however she doesn’t go out of her way to cause a problem. She loves to be brushed, and actually enjoys her belly rubs though she is not a fan of being held or picked up. She has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and spayed.
Mr. Big is a very large, male, grey tabby. He is 7 years old and has been at the shelter since January 25th2019. His temperament with people is that he absolutely loves affection. He craves to be cuddled, and when you give him a scratch behind his head he will drool. He is very shy in the common area with the other cats, so we don’t think he would be happy in a home with other animals. He may take time to acclimate to his new surroundings, but he is an extremely affectionate cat and will come around to his new family. He has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and neutered.
Miss Kitty is a female calico. She is 10 years old and has been at the shelter since April 3rd 2019. She has not quite shown us what her personality is like yet except that she is extremely unsure of her new surroundings. For the most part, she stays at the top of a cat tower with her face hidden. Even when we pet her to try to make her feel more secure, she just stares at us with her ears flat. Miss Kitty would probably take a bit of time to acclimate to a new home. Her previous owner said she is social with the people she lives with but hides when visitors come in. She has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and spayed.
Wilma is a female, long haired, torti. She is around 2 years old and was surrendered to us as a stray. When she got here, the tips of her ears had been frostbitten. She is extremely acffectionate and loves to be held. She prefers people over other cats, however she has an even temperment with them. She has been keeping herself hidden since being introduced to the common area. She is a quiet cat and at this point we haven't seen a playful side to her. We don't know how she interacts with dogs, but based on her timid demeanour we can safely assume she would just hide away from them. Wilma has been flea and worm treated, spayed and vaccinated.
Crystal is a female, grey tabby. She is approximately 2 years old and has been at the shelter since July 27th2018. She and 4 kittens were surrendered together as strays. All of her kittens have since been adopted, and she is still here. Crystal does not outshine the other cats in the room because she is still extremely timid. She rarely allows people to touch her, and will usually move away from being pet. Though she is standoffish with people, she deserves a loving, quiet home that would be patient with her as she acclimates to a new environment. She has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and spayed.
Buster is a male, black and grey tabby. He is a whopping 10 years young and has been at the shelter since April 4, 2019. He was surrendered to us with Miss Kitty the Calico. Surprisingly the two of them are complete opposites. Buster is very friendly and loves affection. He does keep to himself for the most part, but once you start to pet him he perks right up and enjoys every second of it. He has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and spayed.
Kitty is a male, white and grey bi-colour. He is approximately 9 years old and has been at the shelter since Oct 31st 2018. He was surrendered as a stray, and we have no previous information on him. We can tell he has had some previous trauma on his rear paws but how he acquired that is unknown. He does not play with the other cats and often sits alone in the window sill. He would be a great companion for a senior as he does like people, he just decides for himself when he’s ready for affection. He has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and neutered.
Janis is a female, grey tabby. She is approximately 10 years old and has been at the shelter since November 14th2018. She came to us as a stray, and so we cannot be sure how he responds to dogs. We do know that she is not fond of the other cats in the common area, but she doesn’t fight or charge at them, she just tolerates them. She loves people, she will come to a person to be pet and she enjoys affection. Despite being fed routinely, she eats as if she will never see food again. She is very talkative, and always looks grumpy. She has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and spayed.
Rocket is a male, long hair, brown tabby. He is roughly 4 years old and has been at the shelter since March 25, 2019. Rocket was an outdoor cat before coming to our shelter, and may be difficult to keep inside once he has found a new home. Here at the shelter he does not try to get out, so we think he's enjoying his life inside. However, he has not made any friends in the cat room. Rocket is very independent, and often starts fights in the cat room. He may be better suited to live in a home where there are no other cats. He is affectionate, and loves to talk to people when they enter the room. He follows you around and brushes up agaisnt your legs as you walk. He has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and neutered.
Scaramouche is a female, grey tabby. She is roughly 1 ½ years old and has been at the shelter since January 16th, 2019. She had been surrendered by a property management company after she had been left behind. We have no information about her except what we have seen here at the shelter. As soon as you walk in the cat room she comes running to talk to you. When you start to pet her she nearly flops over in your hands. She also will puff her tail after being pet for a long time, we aren’t sure why, but she does it when she’s happy. She has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and spayed.
Sylvester is a long haired, black, brown and white male. His birthday is September 13, 2017 and has been at the shelter since March 25, 2019. Sylvester was surrendered with his brother Rocco and sister Chleo. You can find them all curled up together in a bed in the cat room. Sylvester is the most timid of all three. He has taken quite a bit of time to get acclimated to the shelter and was keeping himself hidden as best he could for a long time. Just recently he has been found in more open places and around the other cats. He has a big appetitie and he takes a bit of time to warm up to people but does like to be pet. He has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and neutered.
Chleo is a long haired, female calico. Her birthday is September 13, 2017 has been at the shelter since March 25th, 2019. She was surrendered with her two brothers, Rocco and Sylvester. She has hair loss related to having fleas, but since being treated and eliminating the fleas we expect regrowth over time. She is very small, but she has a big appetite. She also loves affection which is not typical for a calico. She gets along well with the other cats and she likes to come out to visit when new people enter the room. She has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and spayed.
Rocco is a grey and white long haired male. His birthday is September 13, 2017 and he has been at the shelter since March 25th, 2019. Rocco was surrendered with his brother and sister, Sylvester and Chleo. He has hair loss related to having fleas but we expect regrowth now that he has been treated and the fleas have been eliminated. Rocco is a friendly boy, he likes to come visit and receive attention. He gets along well with the other cats. He is very mellow and likes to lounge on the cat tower. He has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and neutered.
Chum is a male orange tabby. He is roughly 4 years old and has been at the shelter since March 4th, 2019. Chum was brought to us as a stray. Upon arrival he had what looked like frost bite on one of his hind feet which had to be treated for infection and ultimately a claw had to be removed. He gets along fairly well with the other cats though he doesn’t play with them. He can be a bit sour toward them if they are in his space. Otherwise, he is a fairly mellow cat who likes to lounge by the window. He has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and neutered.
Charlie is a male, black/brown tabby. He is approximately 7 years old and has been at the shelter since March 22nd, 2019. Charlie has lived in 1 home with no other animals. His family made sure to have him vetted, and he was well taken care of. Charlie is tolerating the other cats in the common area, but he demands his space if another cat gets too close. He is very affectionate and will follow you around the room, chirping the entire time. He has been flea and worm treated, vaccinated and neutered.
