Adoption of domestic animals is facilitated through the branches of the Nova Scotia SPCA throughout the province. Shelters in Dartmouth, Kentville, New Glasgow, Sydney, Truro and Yarmouth, and foster-care networks in Antigonish, Municipality of Clare, Hants County, Lunenburg County and Liverpool, provide adoption services that help homeless animals find new, permanent homes. Nova Scotia SPCA branches are often overflowing with young and adult animals that deserve loving new homes. Adoption is often an economical option as well, with many services such as your new pet's spay/neuter operation often included in the adoption fee. Please note that the processing times and pre-approval proceedures vary, please contact the branch directly for more information.

When you adopt from a SPCA:
- Your new pet typically will be spayed or neutered, vet checked, vaccinated and dewormed, all for an adoption fee that is less than the cost of these services combined.
- You support a good cause rather than providing revenue for puppy and kitten mills by purchasing from a pet store.
- You give a homeless animal a second chance at the life they deserve, and you help make room for another animal to take their place and begin the journey to a permanent, loving home.
