Before You Adopt

**UPDATED June 15th, 2020: Please note that due to COVID-19 requirements, the Winnipeg Humane Society has had to move to appointment-only in Adoptions. We apologize for the inconvenience, but you will be required to call 204-982-2035 to secure your spot to visit animals and complete the Adoptions process. There are currently a limited amount of walk-up appointments available, but they are subject to how busy the shelter is on any given day and will depend on having WHS resources to support those appointments. We highly advised calling to book ahead to ensure you are not disappointed. Thank you for your patience and understanding.**

The benefits of adopting a lovable, faithful companion are endless — but the decision to add a pet to your family should not be made lightly.
