Our Featured Pet...

NEW! The Thornhill Animal Shelter has teamed up with Petland Terrace and now showcases kittens and cats at the Petland location. - The Thornhill Animal Shelter is now open from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. for your convenience. We hope being open during a portion of the lunch hour will increase visits to the shelter and result in more animals finding "forever homes".
