Who We Are

Burlington Animal Shelter is operated by the City of Burlington. We have been providing Animal Control Services to the community of Burlington since 1968. Our services include adoptions, sheltering of lost and stray pets, animal control, and by-law enforcement. Our vision is to maintain an Animal Control orgainization that is committed to excellence in service, and the welfare of all animals.

Adopting a friend

Burlington Animal Shelter is responsible for sheltering and caring for all lost and stray pets within the City of Burlington. Provincial statute mandates that we hold stray pets for a 72 hour redemption period (excluding holidays) prior to placing any pet up for adoption to a new home. If not claimed by an owner, the Burlington Animal Shelter becomes the legal guardian of these pets. This is our opportunity to place these pets into new and more caring homes. As an added bonus to our potential adopters, our animals are given age appropriate vaccinations, a free physical examination (with a Burlington Veterinarian), a microchip for permanent identification and 6 weeks of pet insurance coverage. During the adoption process, we encourage prospective adopters to spend time getting to know the pets so that they can make an educated choice for their new companion. Our staff will spend time answering questions and will explain the responsibilities of owning and caring for a new pet. We have a variety of animals in the shelter that are awaiting adoption into loving new homes.

Hill's Shelter Nutrition Partnership

Hill's Food, Shelter & Love™ program has partnered with us and is donating pet food for all dogs, cats, kittens and puppies being cared for here. As a shelter partner, we are exclusively feeding Hill’s® Science Diet® to all the animals in our care. http://www.hillspet.com
