Waiting for Adoption
Our mission statement is:
"To shelter all healthy and sociable animals in a loving, clean environment until a suitable home is found."

(Thank You for adopting one of our pets!)

  • Many of our impounded dogs and cats are not claimed by their owner despite all attempts to find them.
    Owners of lost pets have 3 CLEAR days to redeem their pets. This does not include the day the pet enters the shelter, or any Sundays or Holidays. A lost animal is usually here for at least 5 or more days. No pet is ever euthanized that has adoption potential which results in added expense for us, but it is well worth the wait when we see them finally go into their new homes. Our staff gets very attached to them while here, and it is a bittersweet moment when they are finally adopted. We are a private kennel and therefore are able to house the strays here for however long it may take to place them into a new forever home.
  • If you would like to adopt a pet or have lost a pet in our Animal Control area, you can see our list of pets available for adoption by clicking here.
  • We put all our adoptable pets on several websites, such as Petfinder and Rescue Group.Org. We also utilize our Facebook Page.
  • Our shelter is too small to take in any owner pets. We only take in the strays, lost and abandoned pets, from the areas that we service as listed on our Animal Control Page
  • We only take in stray cats from Strathroy-Caradoc and Middlesex Centre. Sometimes, due to lack of space, we are not always able to accommodate all the stray cats from these areas.
  • Before calling us about an adoption, print our Adoption Form and fill it out. It may help you (and us) select the dog or cat that is best for you.
  • Another great idea is to read "Adopting a Rescue Dog -The First Seven Days" a great guide to getting a new dog. You can download a PDF copy by clicking here or email them from their website for a copy of the book.
  • You can also view our ACC Lobo Code Of Ethics.
Adoption Fees

WAIT! Before you consider adoption, consider the annual cost in return of a pets unconditional affection.
Click here for a cost estimate from the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) which includes insurance and prices to care for an pet each year.

Alternately, click here to checkout the calculator at TheSimpleDollar.com

TheSimpleDollar.com has just wrapped up their 2016 study and published a comprehensive resource to help people not only understand, but to quantify the real cost of pet ownership. Often times, people are enamored with the idea of having a cute animal, but are unaware of the costs that are associated with taking care of a pet and being a responsible pet owner.
From basics to logistics, the costs can add up quickly. This guide not only identifies common expenses, but provides helpful cost management strategies including a calculator to help estimate pet ownership costs. The hope is that more people will make smarter, well informed decisions when buying a pet so every animal can receive the love and care it deserves.

We do charge a minimal fee for adoptions to help cover our expenses.
Our Adoption Services are strictly non-profit

Dog Fees

Our basic adoption fee for a dog (as is) is $100 plus HST. Any veteterinarian work is added to this fee.
The Standard Fee for pups is $250 which includes a vet check and vaccinations

Cat Fees

Our basic adoption fee for a feline (as is) is $50 plus taxes. Any veteterinarian work is added to this fee.
No one who can provide a secure loving home will be turned away.
We highly recommend that each feline is taken to your own vet for vaccination and sterilization.
All felines are isolated upon intake, thoroughly examined and treated for parasites.
A.C.C.Lobo will not take back any feline that is adopted. It is much too stressful for the feline to be returned. We would encourage anyone who adopts to understand that this is now a permanent commitment. Please do your homework first and be confident that you are now the new owner and totally able from here on to look after the feline(s) adopted and insure that your new pet(s) will have an excellent forever home with you.

We will no longer give any refunds to any feline adopted from our shelter.

Before calling us about an adoption, print our Adoption Form and fill it out. It may help you (and us) select the dog or cat that is best for you.

Another great idea is to read "Adopting a Rescue Dog -The First Seven Days" a great guide to getting a new dog. You can download a PDF copy by clicking here or email them from their website for a copy of the book.

If you can't find the pet that seems right for you here, please check out our Links page. There are a number of local and national organizations such as ARF that can help you find the pet that is right for you.

Animals as Gifts

Thinking of giving a puppy or a kitten as a gift? This can be very stressful for the animal around Christmas time or Birthdays. Why not give a Pet Promise Certificate? This certificate can be printed and reviewed by the recipient on Christmas or their birthday and then they can be prepared to help introduce the pet to your household and take care of it. Consider attaching the certificate to a Stuffed Animal.

You can view and print the Certificate here.

(Thanks to petfinder.com for the idea)
