Our complete adoption policies can be read on our sister site. For our complete adoption policies, click here.
Our doors are open to all homeless and abandoned animals. Owned animals are admitted only if there is room.
We now have an adoption application form that you fill out prior to adoption and you must be approved before you can adopt one of our animals.
Adoption applications are NOT available on-line. Please e-mail or call to have one sent to you.
Please note: we do NOT do long distance adoptions over the Internet. We feel the best possible match requires the prospective owner meeting with the animal at the shelter. It is sometimes even necessary to visit more than once to allow the animal to become comfortable with you before taking him or her home. So if you see one of our critters on this site and fall in love, please make arrangements to come and meet them.
S.H.A.I.D., which stands for "Sheltering Helpless Animals in Distress", is located in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Our doors have been open since 1986, and in 1990, we moved into our current building. This new shelter cost $120 000 and all the money was raised through fundraisers and donations. Our shelter was paid in full in 1995 and now all the money raised through our many fundraisers goes towards the care of our very important residents.

It is located at the top of the hill, on the left, just before the Waste Management facility aka "the dump". To Visit Our Official Website click here.
