How Adoption Works

Hello, I'm Minerva. I'm the kind of cat who appreciates solitude. I enjoy quiet moments, exploring nooks and crannies at my own pace. I'm a bit shy, but don't mistake that for disinterest. I just take my time to warm up. I'm not one for constant cuddles, but when I do seek affection, it's a special moment. I'm independent, I can keep myself entertained. I'm perfect for someone who values their personal space as much as I do. Adopting me means you're not just getting a pet, you're gaining a companion who respects your boundaries and cherishes quiet moments together.

Minerva is a shy girl who will take some time adjusting to her new home. She is used to living with other cats and would enjoy the company of another feline. She is looking for someone to help her on her weight loss journey and would benefit from having space to roam and play.

Every adoptable animal at the HBSPCA comes with everything your furry friend needs.

This includes all up-to-date vaccinations and deworming, testing and prevention procedures before adoption (when required), flea prevention treatment, microchipping, dental work and bloodwork (when recommended by our veterinarian).

Most importantly, your adoptable animal always comes fully spayed/neutered.

We also offer every adoptable animal one sample bag of the Hill’s Science Diet food (which this animal has been eating in our care.

All-in, our adoptable animals come with over $1,000 of value.

For the wellbeing of all animals in our care, members of the public are not able to meet with adoptable animals until they have completed a formal application, and are invited to a scheduled meet-and-greet appointment.

In addition, the majority of animals in our care are placed in foster homes until they are adopted to optimize their health. Most animals you see on our adoption page are not located on-site, in our shelter.

  • Your Commitment

    The HBSPCA facilitates adoptions through a unique Adoption Commitment Approach. By submitting a fully-refundable deposit today, which will be paired with your application, we're able to offer the following guarantee.

  • Our Guarantee

    Every animal you see on our website is currently available for adoption. We limit the total number of applications per adoptable animal to a small group of high-intent applicants, carefully review every application, and keep our website up-to-date.

  • A Better Experience

    Your valuable time to complete an application, and your commitment to adopt with us, is respected. In other words, we review your application with ~2-5 other applicants (instead of dozens or hundreds), and guarantee a response.
