Every single day animals arrive at the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre needing our help. We feed, exercise, bathe, socialize, play with and provide comfort to these abused, neglected and abandoned animals. We drive the wounded and sick to the veterinarian, change bandages, administer medications and monitor their recovery - with the goal of finding each animal a loving home. Last year hundreds of animals were adopted from the Barrie Animal Centre including cats and dogs of all ages, shapes, sizes and breeds, as well as birds, rabbits, guinea pigs and more!

A perfect match
Adoption centre staff will help you through every step of finding your special friend - one that is just right for you. They will answer any questions, help you decide which pet is a good match for you, and be available for advice following your pet adoption. When you adopt your pet, not only do you get a wonderful friend, you give an animal an incredible gift, a second chance to find happiness and love. Plus you get great value, your pet will be spayed/neutered and vaccinated and you'll receive helpful literature on caring for your pet.

We invite you to drop by the shelter during adoption hours to view or visit the animals or click the above links to view available animals online.
