The Owen Sound Animal Shelter provides animal control for the City of Owen Sound and Saugeen Shores. The Shelter cares for stray animals until owners can reclaim them and also provides an opportunity for people to adopt a pet into a loving home. Renee and Todd Robins, Animal Control and By-Law Officers for the City of Owen Sound, have been operating the Shelter since April 1, 1999. Renee has spent her life working with animals. Her specialty is training in animal behaviour and behaviour modification, coupled with animal health and first aid, anatomy, physiology, microbiology and animal nutrition. She has rounded off her training with media relations. Renee has also worked for the animal care network and has worked in the private sector. Todd has worked in the private sector and trained in the enforcement field. Todd also worked in a vet clinic for 13 years and now runs the day-to-day management and operations of OSAS. Together they make a dedicated team and are devoted to helping animals not only find their "forever homes" but helping animals in need. In 2007 the Owen Sound Animal Shelter celebrated 8 years of being a no-kill facility.
Come Meet our Pets:
You must come to the Shelter to visit the animals personally. All animals up for adoption are on our web site [which updated daily]. Visit the web site for cost and which animals are up for adoption. Our web site also gives potential adopters information on dogs and cats and other links to animals, training, new adoption information, and if the new adopter needs help with the new adoption. Renee Robins is always available for consultation and will help with every adoption whatever problems come up. Renee also loves to have Happy Tails information on the new adoptions and the web site has many web pages dedicated to all the furkids who have found their forever homes.
Our Adoption Process:
Each Animal [dog, cat, ferret, rabbits, birds, reptiles] are different prices. Each person must come to the Shelter and speak with Renee Robins before the adopter can adopt an animal.
