About the Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre

The Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre provides care and shelter for stray cats and dogs from Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina and Newmarket. All cats and dogs picked up by Animal Services officers from these four municipalities are brought to the Georgina Animal Shelter, if they cannot be returned home.

Contact the Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre by email or by calling 1-800-898-8606.

In 2019, the Towns of Georgina, Aurora and Newmarket amalgamated their animal services and signed a two-year agreement which allows the three municipalities to work together to provide a higher level of service. Officers from each municipality work together to provide animal services coverage seven-days-a-week across these municipalities.

Animal Services

If you require assistance from an animal services officer regarding an animal-related incident including but not limited to a lost or found pet, sick or injured stray animal, animal-related by-law infraction, or other animal-related emergencies, call 1-877-979-PAWS (7297) or e-mail animalservices@aurora.ca.

For East Gwillimbury and Georgina Island, call 1-888-644-5634 for animal-related matters.

Animal Licensing and DocuPet

Each municipality is responsible for its own animal licensing as well as enforcement of the applicable by-laws. For more information, visit your Town’s animal licensing webpage:

Licences can be obtained from DocuPet. You can get a licence online in less than five minutes and will immediately gain access to your profile, which is used to reunite you with your pet in the event that it becomes lost. You will be in compliance as soon as you complete the form and your dog tag will be sent in the mail within 10 to 12 business days.

Lost and Found

If you have found a lost dog or cat, report it to both Animal Services and the Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre.

If you have found a lost dog or cat, report to Animal Services as soon as possible for pick up, so it may be returned to its family.

Helping Lost Pets is a free service and resource to help return lost pets back home. Register today, and if your pet goes missing, other local registered members will be alerted. This site also allows you to create flyers to post in your neighbourhood.
