This week's adoptable pet:

A black dog with brown muzzle sits and looks at camera

When you look at Jake, you will notice a few special features that make him stinking cute. A big head, huge puppy eyes, and a very wiggly butt!

This 2-year-old boy is full of love and eager to engage with people. You will always find Jake wiggling his butt when he’s out for a walk with the volunteers. However, Jake wants people to take him seriously as he works very hard for love and attention.

He knows how to sit, leave it, and always knows how to put his nose to work in finding delicious treats.

Call our Adoption department today at 204-982-2035 to find out more about lovely Jake!

Adoption FAQs

Question: Who can adopt an animal from the Winnipeg Humane Society?
Answer: Anyone interested in adopting should contact the WHS Adoptions team! If you live in the city OR in the country, we’ll find a pet to match your personality and space. Talk to one of our adoption counsellors about what kind of pet is right for you and your home!

Question: What should I consider before adopting a new pet?
Answer: You definitely need to consider these three key things!

  1. What is your lifestyle? Do you like to relax and chill or go for regular runs?
  2. What’s your space like? Do you live in a small apartment or have a large, fenced yard? Do you have experience with perimeter training for unfenced properties?
  3. What’s your budget? Pets come with regular costs like food, litter, grooming, vet visits and regular vaccines! Once you're ready, the Winnipeg Humane Society will help you make a purrrfect match!

Question: How much does an adoption cost?
Answer: It depends on the animal! Prices range from $79+ for cats, $220+ for dogs and critters range by animal type. Senior animals are even lower, but also vary by pet. We often run adoption promotions so be sure to follow us on social media. All adoptions come spayed/neutered, with an ear tattoo for ID, first vaccine, vet wellness check and a limited complimentary pet insurance trial.
