If you're considering adopting an animal from the Ontario SPCA, or have already adopted a pet, browse our collection of adoption tip sheets for information about everything from choosing the right companion to teaching your pet (in a positive way!) the behaviours you'd like to see more - or less often.

Careful consideration before adopting, including research and planning, plus plenty of love, patience and a sense of humor, will foster a strong and loving relationship that will make you friends for life!
