How Adoption Works

Hi, I'm Tadpole! I'm still just a pup, and the world seems so big and scary. New things? They frighten me a bit, I won't lie. I'm a bit goofy too, sometimes tripping over my own paws. But I'm learning, slowly but surely. Trust is a tricky thing, you see. It takes time, patience, and lots of love. But once you've earned it, it's the most precious thing in the world. I'm on a journey, a journey of trust and love. I need someone who will walk with me, at my own pace, understanding my fears and celebrating my small victories. Would you be that person? Adopt me and let's embark on this journey together.


P.S, I am 8.8kg and growing!

    Tadpole has started his life as an outdoor dog and has yet to experience common household activity. Things like the T.V, vacuum, and other everyday items will be foreign and scary. He will do best with a family who is experienced with under-socialized and fearful dogs. He will need to go to an adult only home. Tadpole would also benefit from having another social dog in the home. Private lessons are highly recommended to work with a professional to get him started on the right path. Paired with obedience classes once he is ready.

    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.
