The Shirley Kearns Memorial Adoption Centre is now open for visitors. We are committed to the safety of our animals, staff and community, and are taking the following precautions:

  • The Shirley Kearns Memorial Adoption Centre is open for visitors Tuesday to Friday from 1 to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is closed to visitors on Mondays.
  • Safety measures such as physical distancing, masking and other precautions that were in place during lockdown are currently in place.
  • Enhanced cleaning measures and physical barriers are in place to prevent the spread of germs.
  • Adoptions will continue by appointment. Visit animals available for adoption on our website and call 613-725-3166 ext. 258 to schedule an appointment.

The OHS continues to admit stray animals and help owners find their lost pets by appointment and the intake of animals will be prioritized based on need. If you believe your lost pet may be at the OHS, or to bring in an animal, contact us at 613-725-3166, ext. 221.
