Lanark Animal Welfare Society

Our mission is to promote the welfare of all animals, to provide shelter and care, and prevent cruelty and suffering for those animals in need.

Adoption Info

Adopting a cat or dog is a major decision and we are here to help you make the best match.

Please download our Cat Questionnaire or Dog Questionnaire and fill it out at your convenience to help with adoption.

It is the goal of LAWS to ensure this potential adoption is in the best interest of both the animal and prospective adopters. At the Shelter, an adoption counsellor will work with you to determine which pet suits your particular circumstances. Please have the appropriate pre-adoption questionnaire filled out prior to initiating the adoption process. The staff of LAWS reserves the right to ask additional questions and may ask the adopter to return with the rest of the family or current dog(s) in residence to ensure the animal is compatible with the entire family.

LAWS reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is found unsuitable for the specified animal.

  • Pet Watch Insurance Pet insurance is provided at no cost for a period of 6 weeks to all cats and dogs adopted at LAWS. This is offered by the Ontario SPCA through the OSPCA insurance company.

The policy can be extended past the 6 week period at the adopter’s expense.

LAWS puts forward the best effort to ensure that your selected animal is a suitable match and your adoption will be approved on an individual basis based on the information you provide to the LAWS staff. LAWS will disclose any and all information obtained about this animal from past history or from personal observation during its time at the shelter but you will be agreeing to take on the future responsibility of this animal.

If you must return the animal, for any reason, you have 30 days to do so post-adoption without reimbursement of any kind.

If you must return the animal AFTER the first 30 days you will be subject to the shelter’s current animal surrendering fee.

Please note: We do not issue refunds.

We remain committed to making every adoption a successful one–for both you and the animals in our care!

Please drop in at our shelter to see the animals available for adoption. One might be right for you!
