When all the paperwork and checks are complete – you can take your new pet home! A follow up visit is usually carried out to make sure you and your new pet are happy!

Adopting an Animal Makes a Difference

Saving a life

When you adopt with the ISPCA, you're giving a homeless animal a chance at a better life. You're providing a loving home to a pet in need, and in some cases, you might even be saving their life.

Supporting a good cause

You're contributing to the organisation's mission to promote animal welfare. Your adoption fee goes toward the care, rescue, and rehabilitation of more animals in need.

Health and Behaviour Assessments

In each of our centre, every animal receive health check-ups and behavioural assessments. This means you can have a better understanding of the pet's medical history and temperament, making it easier to find a compatible companion.
