Dogs available for adoption

The following is a list of dogs currently available for adoption at the Animal Service Centre. The list is updated every 15 minutes during business hours, so please check back frequently.

Additionally, you can download the free City of Calgary Pets mobile application to view our adoptable cats and adoptable dogs on your mobile device.

You may also want to check our impounded dogs  or impounded cats page for the cats and dogs currently at the Animal Services Centre that may become available for adoption in the near future, or our featured Pet of the Week

New adoption procedures for cats and dogs:

  • Appointments are no longer required - animals will be viewed on a "first come first meet basis.
  • Meetings can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.
  • We strongly recommend that "at home" dogs be brought in to meet with any dogs you are considering adopting. 

    • We do not recommed bringing in cats or bringing in a dog to meet cats you are considering adopting - it is too stressful for the cats.

  • Some animals with adoption conditions may require a second visit.
  • We do not put "holds" on animals unless a second visit is required.
  • See our "Contact Us" page for our hours and the Animal Services Centre location.
