Changing pets' lives since 1993

Lakefield Animal Welfare Society is currently implementing a new adoption process to comply with COVID-19 regulations to ensure the health and safety of staff, adopters, and animals.


All cats available for adoption will be posted on our website under the Adopt A Pet page. Please read their profiles carefully as important information regarding sociability and health is there.  

If you are interested in a cat, please call us at the shelter (705) 652-0588 to arrange a meet-n-greet with the cat. Our policy is to give adoption priority to the first contacter and then create a list of other people interested. If the first person does not adopt the cat we will follow up with the next person on this list. 

As per our COVID-19 policies, only 1 visitor may visit the cat.  Proper PPE is required, along with our hand washing and sanitizing procedures which will be communicated to you again when you arrive. Instructions for entry to the shelter are posted on our front doors.

Because of our recent renovations, cat visits will be in one of our back rooms, and not in our main room. The cat will be brought to you to meet, and if it is a match, you will fill out the adoption forms, pay the adoption fee and take your cat home. Please bring your own cat carrier with you – medium to large cat carriers are best for an adult cat.


There are certain cats that need a specific home to fit their special needs.  Please complete the application form and email it to We will contact qualified families to further discuss the cat’s needs and possible adoption.


During kitten season we sometimes have over 50 kittens in our foster homes. Due to the high numbers, we refer inquiries to our Foster Coordinator to organize our kitten adoptions. If you are looking for a kitten please call the shelter at (705) 652-0588 and the Adoption Coordinator will contact you.
