Surrendering an Animal:

At the Thunder Bay & District Humane Society, we understand that sometimes things happen that affect your ability to care for your animal(s) & in turn surrender them to the Shelter. With that being said, we need to protect our animals within our shelter and the animals entering. If you are thinking of surrendering your animal to us, please make sure you complete the following:

The animal MUST have proper up to date Veterinarian paperwork. 

The animal will require Veterinarian records within the last 6 months. 

You MUST call us to schedule a meet and greet with the animal.  

* Please note that we will no longer be doing animal surrenders on Saturday & Sundays. You will need to call us at 475-8803 in order to schedule a surrender. Please do not show up at the shelter with an animal, we will no longer be able to assist unless scheduled*

Spay & Neuter

Low Cost Spay & Neuter Information:

Thunder Bay & District Humane Society Veterinary Clinic is now offering low cost spay and neuter to the public.

High Volume/Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinics are an alternative to private clinics for some but not all animals. We have guidelines in place to ensure that your pet meets our criteria.

Drop off time for dogs is at 8:00am. Drop off time for cats is at 8:30am. We do have surgery appointments available Monday to Thursday.

Pickup time for dogs is at 4:00pm. Pick up time for cats is at 5:00 pm.

Dogs:

  • Must be between 3 months – 6 years of age. Older animals benefit from more in-depth monitoring, preanesthetic bloodwork, and IV fluids which are not something we can provide. If you want to still schedule your dog in that is older than 6 years old this is an option after a conversation with our Veterinarian. You will have to sign a waiver for high risk animals to have this surgery performed.
  • Animals must be healthy. We do not perform surgeries on animals with any serious medical concerns or those with heart murmurs or histories of seizures.
  • Female dogs can be spayed in heat. This does increase the risk of surgical complications and a $30 fee will be added on.
  • Female dogs can be spayed when in early pregnancy (abortion). A $30 additional fee will be added on to surgery. There is an increased risk of surgical complications with this surgery.
  • Female dogs must be completely weaned from their puppies for 14 days prior to surgery.
  • We recommend that they be up to date on vaccinations but do not require it. Animals that are not vaccinated are at risk of picking up disease while in for surgery.

Cats:

  • Must be 8 years or younger. Older animals benefit from more in-depth monitoring, preanesthetic bloodwork, and IV fluids which are not something we can provide. If you want to still schedule your cat in that is older than 8 years old this is an option after a conversation with our Veterinarian. You will have to sign a waiver for high risk animals to have this surgery performed.
  • Must be at least 2 pounds or 2 months of age.
  • Animals must be healthy. We do not perform surgeries on animals with medical concerns or those with heart murmurs or a history of seizures.
  • Cats in heat and at any stage of pregnancy (abortion) can be spayed. No additional fees apply. There is an increased risk of surgical/anesthesia complications with this surgery.

Foster Parent Program

Foster homes are a necessary component of a successful shelter.

In foster homes animals are provided with socialization, allows space for mother cats/dogs to raise their young, and time for sick or injured animals to heal. Without these foster homes, many of these animals would not survive. Foster homes also free up space within the shelter, which means more lives are saved!

Become a Volunteer

Here at the Thunder Bay & District Humane Society, we have designed a volunteer program that allows our volunteers to contribute in a dedicated and meaningful way. Our volunteers assist TBDHS in providing humane care and protection to all our animals.

These volunteer positions allow for an opportunity to help animals in need, learn what it takes to keep the Thunder Bay & District Humane Society going, and give back to the community. We welcome and encourage committed individuals to apply for the position that best suits you!
