General Info

  • All dogs 6 months and older are assessed by behavior specialists 
  • Adopted animals are monitored for a 14 day health period to address medical concerns
  • All animals are evaluated based on their health, known history, and temperament 
  • Animals are available on a first-come, first-serve basis

Along with cats, dogs, and rabbits, we sometimes have other animals available such as birds, hamsters, and various rodents.

One of the goals of The Winnipeg Humane Society is to place animals in a responsible and loving permanent home. Weekends at the shelter are very busy so try to come on a weekday to pick out your new pet. For a list of our hours of operation, please see Location and Hours.
