Hi there, my name is Becca Boo

I'm a Lone Ranger! I'm quiet, like a shadow on a wall, but if you're sneaky and quick enough, you might catch a glimpse of my perfectly groomed tail zipping around a corner! You may not see very much of me initially as I might be somewhat fearful of new situations. But even though I keep to myself, I might surprise you with some cuddles once in a while. I would love a home which will respect my request for alone time, as well as be open to my love when I choose to give it. I may be nervous, but I can be full of love if you and I work together to help me become a more confident kitty! I can't wait to find my new family.


Foster Comments: Foster comments:
Becca Boo was in our house for a month. She'll be the first to tell you she is not a brave cat, not at all, but she makes up for it by being extremely loving & attentive to her humans. She will do best starting out in 1 room to get used to the sounds, routine, & people in your house. She startles easily & panics if forced into situations but will gradually start to explore as she gets more familiar with your place. She loves attention, being petted & groomed, & really your lap is the best place! I trimmed her very sharp claws the first week she was with me with no objections, just demands for more head rubs. While she likely would prefer to be your only pampered pet, in her foster home, she has accepted & been tolerant of 2 small dogs, & 1 calm older cat. She tended to dive for her safe place if the dogs started barking. Otherwise she just gave them a stern hiss to let them know who's boss. She had her safe place which she could always get to, a soft pet bed on a chair, which she would dive under when feeling stressed. She was left alone when she chose her place so she had 1 place which was only hers. She is a night owl, coming out to explore in the evening & sleeping during the day. She absolutely adores Temptations cat treats & would appear immediately if she heard the bag rattle. She uses her litter box faithfully & has been eating Friskies seafood kibble & shredded or chunked wet food. She is not a fan of pate wet food. Becca Boo is a delightful little cat who may not show at her best in the shelter given the noise & activity, but would love to find a peaceful home that appreciates her loving nature.

Our Adoption Process...

Before you Adopt
Pet adoption is a big commitment. We encourage you to spend considerable time thinking about and researching the type of pet most suitable to your family. Most breeds have their own characteristic traits and specific needs which need to be considered. Remember that some animals have lifespans of 20 years or more.

Prospective adopters will meet the following requirements:

You must be at least 18 years old.
You must have two pieces of identification, with at least one showing your current address and a picture.
ALL FAMILY MEMBERS, sometimes including family pets, must be present during the adoption process.
If you already have a dog and are considering adopting another one, you MUST be prepared to bring your current family dog to the interview. This will help you to determine if all family members and existing pets will get along with the new pet.
If you live in rental accommodations, please confirm that your landlord allows the type of pet you are considering, and that you have paid your pet deposit before you adopt. There are NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES if the buildingowner does not accept the animal. In addition, you will have to pay all regular surrender fees if you need to return the animal to the Edmonton Humane Society.

If you are looking to adopt a dog or puppy please note:
Some of the dogs on our web site have recommendations on the age of younger family members. These restrictions are placed out of the concern of the dogs as well as in consideration of families.

Remember that new animals arrive every day. You may have to return to the shelter a number of times before you find a good match. It is better to wait and come back again than it is to take home an animal who does not suit your lifestyle

*Please note that the adoption process can take up to 3 hours. This process includes looking at our animals and then working with our staff to process your application. We want to make sure that you have sufficient time to make the right decision, and we also want to make sure that you have all the information you need to help | care for this pet properly.

The Adoption Process
Take the pet portfolio of the animal you wish to adopt to the adoption reception desk.
You will receive an application/survey to complete. Do not worry your selected animal is reserved for you while you complete the paperwork.
Hand in completed form to front desk and wait for an adoption counsellor to contact you. Please feel free to visit anywhere in the shelter while you're waiting.
If you have an animal to meet with your new selected animal a meet and greet will be arranged prior to your interview. Your interview consists of a one on one meeting with an adoption councilor, to ensure you have selected a good match for you and your family, and to also provide answers to any of your questions and review behaviour and medical history.
Your new pet will pay a last visit to the Animal Health Department. While you wait do a bit of shopping, as the next step in the process is to transfer ownership to you and can be lengthy due to the number of customers in front of you.
You will be called again when the adoption representative is ready to complete your application and receive payment.
Our staff will ask you about your lifestyle, family activities, ages of any children, and your typical schedule. All these questions will give us some of the information we need to help you make an appropriate match. Our goal is to find lifelong homes for animals, and to assist prospective adopters in finding an animal best suited to their needs. Filling out our adoption commitment and cover forms beforehand can help speed up the adoption process when you arrive at the shelter.
