1. How do you adopt a kitty from St George Animal Shelter?
Check out our adopt section to find out
2. Why do we charge adoption fees? Are you selling the kitties? Why are kittens more expensive than cats.
No, we do not sell any of the kitties. Adoption fees help to cover the medical costs for a healthy kitty. The kitten adoption fee is higher because the kittens are given more medical appointments and vaccinations so their standard medical costs are higher.
3. If we charge adoption fees, why do we still need to fundraise?
Adoption fees help to cover the standard medical costs for healthy kitties.
But for all the kitties that come to us sick or injured, we must fundraise to cover these costs. Kitties over may have diarrhea or upper respiratory illnesses. Older kitties may need hernia or dental surgery. Some have eye injuries, abcesses, etc. Any additional money raised is also available for helping us build a shelter
4. If my dog or cat was vaccinated once, why do they need to get updates on their vaccinations?
Some vaccinations may only need to be done once for life, but most vaccinations lose their strength over time and must be 'boosted'. The time
period may differ but most require our pets to have their vaccinations boosted either once a year or once every 3 years.
5. Has the shelter started being built yet?
No, what has been done so far is the road and land cleared and leveled
ready for building. We do not have money raised yet to start on the building itself.
6. But it looks like the building is almost finished?
That is the new St George Veterinary Clinic which will be moving from its
8 Portage Street location to this new building as soon as it is ready.
7. When will the dog park open?
The dog park is part of the St George Veterinary Clinic, not the Animal Shelter Please direct this question to them by messaging them through their FB page.
