Cat and dog Adopt-a-thon: June 7 – 8

We shih tzu not — Animal Services is lowering their adoption fee once again for a limited time only.

Location: Animal Services Centre (2201 Portland St. S.E., Calgary, AB T2G 4M7)

Hours: June 7 – 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and June 810 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Available animals: Dogs (adoption fee is $75) and cats (adoption fee is $50).

The event is first-come, first-served. People interested in adopting can show up during the event hours.

This event is an excellent opportunity for those looking to add a furry friend to their family and provide a loving forever home to animals in need. Remember to bring your identification and be prepared to spend some time with the animals to ensure the best match for your family and lifestyle. 

The City of Calgary is once again adopting cats and dogs at the Animal Services Centre in addition to transferring adoptable pets to our partner agencies, to help animals find their furever homes faster.

Shelters and rescue agencies are currently at capacity with the overpopulation of homeless animals. The City reinstated its adoption program to assist with this crisis by making adoptable animals available by appointment.   Once a pet is deemed adoptable, they are available either at the Animal Services Centre or one of our partner agencies: the Calgary Humane Society, or the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS).

Adoptions are available by appointment only by calling 311 or by visiting Animal Services. Appointment are only available from 10:00am thru 1:00pm Monday through Saturday. Adoption cost is $88.75 for cats and $105 for dogs. Adoption fees include medical and dental care, vaccinations, microchip, City of Calgary licence, and spaying/neutering.

Anyone interested in adopting a pet is encouraged to check out the adoptable animals on and at the links below.
