How-To Adopt an Animal from the Moose Jaw Humane Society

Visit the Shelter during viewing hours to see if we have a pet you might be interested in adopting.

Fill out and submit the adoption application form.

If you rent your property, please include a signed letter from your landlord stating that you can have the pet in your home. Please note that any animals you currently own must be spayed or neutered before adopting a shelter pet.

We suggest that you spend some time with the pet you choose to be sure it is right for you. We provide a private room where you can spend some time visiting with your future pet. If you are considering adopting a dog, you might even decide to take it for a walk.

We recommend you bring in all family members to meet your potential pet and to check for compatibility.
If you are still unsure if the pet is right for you and your family, you may want to consider a trial period, for the pet to briefly live with you, before you complete the final adoption process.

To help you care for your pet, all the veterinary clinics in Moose Jaw and Assiniboia have agreed to provide you with a free vet-check within three working days after adoption. The purpose of this exam is to ensure that the animal is in good health. In the event that a medical problem is found, the owner is given the option to return the pet to the Shelter or keep the pet and pursue any necessary treatments. The vet-check is also a great opportunity to discuss feeding, vaccination requirements, spaying or neutering and so forth.

Once you are certain that you would like to adopt the pet you have selected, you will need to visit the Shelter to complete the paperwork.


With the recent contract with the City of Moose Jaw, there has been an adjustment in fees charged by the Moose Jaw Humane Society. You can find more information on the Adoption & Shelter Fees page.

There are additional costs associated with pet ownership, and it's important to consider them when thinking about adoption. Please feel free to speak with staff if you have any questions.

Want to walk and help the Moose Jaw Humane Society? Download the ResQWalk app. It is an app for smartphones that keeps track of how many km people walk, run or bike. The shelter then receives money from their donor pool. We love it, and we are #2 in North America for km walked! More info.
