Calgary Cat Lovers Needed - Impound Lot at Capacity - Animal Adoption Program Information

Here is a video with Bill Bruce, The City's director of Animal Services, imploring cat lovers to provide a happy, healthy home to one of the cats impounded at The City's Animal Services Centre, The Humane Society or through the Meow Foundation. For more information please visit

The advantages of adopting from Animal & Bylaw Services:
  • You are giving a healthy, loving cat or dog a second chance by providing a forever home.
  • All animals are checked by a veterinarian for health and behavioural problems.
  • Qualified Animal Health Technologists advise you throughout the adoption process.
  • Volunteers work with the animals to keep them happy and socialized.
  • The adoption fee is a great value that includes many extras.
Included in the $150 cat adoption fee / $200 dog adoption fee:
  • Spay / neuter surgery
  • A microchip implant
  • A six-month animal licence
  • The first set of vaccinations (excluding rabies)
  • De-worming for cats and puppies under six months 
  • Testing for feline leukemia (cats only)
  • A bag of pet food
  • An adoption kit 
  • GST
How to adopt a cat or dog from Animal & Bylaw Services:
  • View the animals currently for adoption in Adoptable Dogs or Adoptable Cats.  You can also see Impounded Dogs or Impounded Cats for an expanded listing of the cats or dogs at the Animal Services Centre.
  • Visit the Animal Services Centre at 2201 Portland Street SE or call 3-1-1 to put your name on a waiting list for adoptable cats or dogs you are interested in adopting.
  • When your name comes up on the list, you'll be called and invited to the Animal Services Centre for an initial visit with the animal.
  • You'll then be asked to return the next day with any family members who will be living with your potential pet to ensure that the animal is compatible with the family. If you are adopting a dog, you'll be asked to return with any dogs you already have to ensure that the resident dog and the new dog are well-matched.
  • If the animal has not already been spayed / neutered, it will be booked into our clinic for the procedure.
  • You can then pick up your cat or dog from the Animal Services Centre.
