London Animal Care Centre is looking for caring homes to place the cats and dogs that remain in the shelter after having to close our doors in response to the CONVID-19 pandemic. Although LACC continues to provide the best care for these pets, we would like to see them find a forever home they can make their own. If you have been considering adopting a new family member, we ask you consider opening your doors to one of LACC’s pets in waiting. All adoptions will be offered as fee waived in hopes we can find these pets a new home while the shelter is closed to the public.
We understand the importance of social distancing in these uncertain times and that is why we have decided to try something new to facilitate adoptions from the shelter. We are going to move to a virtual adoption platform where prospective adopters view our adoptable animals on our website. If a pet catches your eye and you would like more information on that pet, simply call the shelter at 519-685-1330 and ask to speak with an adoption counsellor. After speaking with a counsellor and if the pet seems to be a potential fit for your family, LACC staff will email you an adoption application which can be returned at your convenience. Once the application is returned, staff will take the opportunity to call prospective adopters to make certain this is the best fit for both you and the pet. From there, the adoption will be finalized and an appointment scheduled for the pet to be picked-up at the shelter. LACC staff will transfer cats to the new owner at an agreed upon appointment time using appropriate social distancing. This will be accomplished by placing the cat in a cat carrier, setting the carrier and adoption paperwork outside the shelter door and sanitizing the carrier handle.
