Adoptions are processed on a first-come-first-served basis. Adoptions may not be processed on the same day if adoption is initiated too close to closing time, depending on client volume. If it is too late to complete the adoption process, animals will be held until the following day so that the adoption can be completed.

Gift certificates for adoption fees make wonderful birthday or Christmas gifts and are available to purchase at the adoption desk or in Bingo’s Pet Shop.

The EHS reserves the right to hold special adoption promotions from time to time, reducing or waiving adoption fees for certain animals. These adoption events are publicly promoted online and the reduced or waived fees are honoured during the promotional dates only. The adoption fees above apply at all other times.
