Our Featured Pet...


Who We Are

The Homeward Bound City Pound is contracted by Halifax Regional Municipality to provide shelter for dogs that are in violation of the HRM by-law A-300 and critically injured cats that have been picked up by Animal Services. Along with providing a safe environment, our dedicated, professional animal care staff offer tender loving care and have the animals treated by a veterinarian as needed.

Animals that are not claimed within 72 hours are assessed for adoption to determine which type of home environment would be most suitable for them.

Adopting a friend

What is the process to adopt a pet from Homeward Bound City Pound?

In order to adopt a pet you will need to fill out an adoption application.

Option #1 - Select our online adoption application that can be filled out and returned to us prior to selecting a pet. After a brief telephone interview we can determine which pet may suit you best and notify you when one becomes available.

Option #2 Visit Homeward Bound City Pound during our adoption viewing hours and see if we have a pet available that you may be interested in. After you find a suitable pet you will be required to fill out an application or you can download an application at home, complete it and bring it with you. We will interview you when you are at our facility to determine if you will be able to accommodate the needs of the pet you have selected.

Once it is determined that the animal in question is a good match for your household we will arrange to have the pet spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and micro-chipped. (These veterinary procedures will not apply to rabbits, rodents or birds)

Please understand that this entire process may take several days.

If you do not see an animal that interests you during a visit to our facility please come back as often as you wish during our viewing hours or check our website for updates on which pets are available.
