Though not included in our Adoption Process, all dogs & cats residing in the City of Kingston are required to be registered. If the pet is lost, a tag can help reunite the family quicker than without any identification, and in many cases the pet can be reunited without having to come into the shelter. Tags can be purchased at the Kingston Humane Society, City Hall and some veterinary clinics. Dogs must be wearing their tag in order to be allowed in a City of Kingston off-leash dog park.
Seniors for Seniors
The “Seniors for Seniors” program offers adoption of cats and dogs 7 years and older to adopters aged 65 and up for 50% of the regular adoption fee.
The “VIP Adoption” program is aimed at ensuring our long-term residents find homes! All adoption fees are reduced by 25% for any animal who has spent 30 or more days in our Adoptions program.
