Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre
The Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre proudly provides care and shelter for stray cats and dogs from Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, and Newmarket. Municipal Animal Control Services are performed under two, third party contracts. All cats and dogs picked up by Animal Control Officers from these four municipalities that cannot be returned home, are brought to the Georgina Animal Shelter.
