Come give some loving to Alfie today!
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-700 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.
In order to adopt a pet you will need to fill out an adoption application.
We do ask that potential applicants come to meet the animal first before submitting an adoption application.
Once it is determined that the animal in question is a good match for your household and that you have been chosen as the adopter, we will arrange a date for the time of adoption. We do not do same-day adoptions- a minimum 24 hour hold period is required. For those dogs that may require mandatory obedience training, you will be requested to bring proof of registration in obedience classes prior to adoption. Our staff will give you a list of experienced dog trainers which you may use to contact a trainer of your preference.
Please understand that this entire process may take several days.
*PLEASE NOTE: We are no longer accepting adoption applications for pre-approval.
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. You can also follow Homeward Bound City Pound on social media.
