adoption process


March 21, 2022: At PHS our top priority is the health and safety of the public, our staff and the animals. As of March 21st, the government has relaxed the current masking mandates. How does this impact our staff and visitors at PHS? We will continue to follow a mandatory masking protocol for staff and visitors until Monday April 4th. After this date, staff and visitors will not be required to wear a mask while in the shelter but will have our full support if they feel comfortable to continue to do so.

Visiting the shelter: Adoptions and viewing will remain by appointment only. This allows our Adoption Counsellor to spend quality time with each potential home to ensure the most successful matches are made between the animals and their new families. If you have any questions about our current processes you can view them contact us at: Adoptions 705-745-4722 ext 204 or Front Desk ext 200.
