Every single day animals arrive at the Ontario SPCA Chatham-Kent Animal Centre needing our help. We feed, exercise, bathe, socialize, play with and provide comfort to these abused, neglected and abandoned animals. We drive the wounded and sick to the veterinarian, change bandages, administer medications and monitor their recovery - with the goal of finding each animal a loving home. Last year hundreds of animals were adopted from the centre including cats and dogs of all ages, shapes, sizes and breeds, as well as birds, rabbits, guinea pigs and more!

A perfect match
Adoption Centre staff will help you through every step of finding your special friend - one that is just right for you. They will answer any questions, help you decide which pet is a good match for you, and be available for advice following your pet adoption. When you adopt your pet, not only do you get a wonderful friend, you give an animal an incredible gift, a second chance to find happiness and love. Plus you get great value and helpful pet care literature! Your pet will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped and receive Revolution© for total parasite control. Your pet also comes with an I.D. tag and a gift of six weeks of complimentary insurance from Ontario SPCA Pet Insurance, the official insurance of Ontario's pets.

We invite you to drop by the shelter during adoption hours to view or visit the animals. You can also click on the links above to view our adoptable animals online.
