Who We Are

Kennel Inn Inc. is located in Aurora and services the towns of Vaughan, Bradford/West Gwillimbury and King Township. Our responsibility is to enforce municipal animal control bylaws. We are a privately owned company contracted by the townships we serve.

Many of the strays that are brought into the shelter are never claimed, despite our lengthy attempts at finding their original owners. If you are interested in adopting a cat or a dog, please consider visiting our adoption center. We always have homeless cats in search of their perfect companion, and we often have dogs as well. Call us or stop by for a visit. We'll be delighted to help in your search for a new family member.

Adopting a Friend

Our hours of operation are as follows.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10am-4:30pm
Wednesday 10am-6:30pm
Saturday 10am-2pm

We are closed on Sundays.

The majority of our animals are unclaimed strays that are now in search of their forever homes. If you can provide a permanent, loving home for a cat or dog, please consider adoption. To view a list of the animals currently available for adoption at the shelter please click here.

How You Can Help


Adopting an animal is a very rewarding experience and a great addition to any family. Not only are you changing the lives of the animal(s) you take home but you are helping the Kennel Inn to make space for another animal to have the opportunity to find his/her forever home.


Every year shelters are faced with an over population of animals. Several of which are euthanised due to the lack of adoptive homes. Although, your cat had 4 kittens and you were able to find homes for them- that's four homes that a shelter animal will never see, thus lessing their chances of being adopted. Help shelters by spay or neutering your pet.


The Kennel Inn is looking for dedicated volunteers to come walk our dogs and socialize our cats on a regular basis. If you are 18 years of age or older and are able to commit to a weekly shift of 2-4 hours then please fill out a volunteer application form.


By licencing your pet, we are able to reunite you and your animal quicker, in most cases before they make it back to the Kennel. This also informs members of the Public that your animal is up to date on vaccines. Hundreds of animals are placed into our care each year due to lack of proper identification. The majority of these cases are placed into our adoption centre as an owner couldn't be located. Licences are required by law. Please contact our offices to have an appointment made to purchase a licence.

We thank each and every one of you for your contributions to the shelter. Your commitment to making stray dogs and cats more comfortable warms our hearts and we are sincerely appreciative of everything that you do for us.
