A perfect match
Adoption Centre staff will help you through every step of finding your special friend - one that is just right for you. They will answer any questions, help you decide which pet is a good match for you, and be available for advice following your pet adoption. When you adopt your pet, not only do you get a wonderful friend, you give an animal an incredible gift, a second chance to find happiness and love. Plus you get great value, your pet will be spayed/neutered and vaccinated and you'll receive helpful literature on caring for your pet.

We invite you to drop by the Adoption Centre during adoption hours to view or visit the animals. You can also click on the links above to view our adoptable animals online.

The Town of Orangeville has agreed to have a special arrangement with transit for anyone who is coming to the shelter or Dufferin Children and Family Services on Orangeville Transit. On request the bus driver - ORANGE ROUTE, the Alder Street Rec Centre Route - will detour from the regular route to drop passengers off at the end of our driveway or in the DCAFs parking lot, for people heading there. Passengers coming to the Ontario SPCA are NOT expected to cross the highway, the driver will stop on the shoulder on the east side of the road to let them exit the bus.

Pickup will also be on request - the passenger will need to call 519-941-2582 at least 30 minutes prior to when they wish to be picked up - and the driver will stop for them. It is the passenger's responsibility to watch for the bus and board it at the end of our driveway. Again, they should NOT cross the road.
