About us

The Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre provides urgent care to stray cats and dogs in the following municipalities: Georgina, Newmarket, Aurora and East Gwillimbury. If you have an urgent concern with a stray cat or dog in one of these areas, call the shelter at 905-476-3457 or email and you will be directed accordingly. 

Adoption requests are considered for stray pets after the five-business day redemption period has concluded. The redemption period does not include Sundays, statutory holidays or any day in which the shelter is closed to the public. The shelter's first priority is always to reunite lost pets with their families. 

Rehoming requests

Rehoming requests are considered on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the shelter. The Georgina Animal Shelter strives to keep pets in their homes and will provide alternative solutions and other resources during rehoming consultations. 

Rehoming a pet is subject to a pet surrender fee. Rehoming requests are subject to the completion of the rehoming questionnaire. All medical records and a picture of your pet will also need to be provided in order for your pet to be considered for the pet rehoming program. If you would like to inquire further about our rehoming process, email or call 905-476-3457.

Reclaiming a pet

Reclaiming a pet will require proof of ownership. Pet owners may be subject to redemption fees including impound, licensing, boarding and medical care fees where applicable.
