COVID-19 UPDATE: Click Here for Current Adoption Procedures
The Toledo Humane Society has hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, and pocket pets looking for their forever homes right now.
Animals come to the Toledo Humane Society in one of three ways: our cruelty department, owner surrender, or transferred from another agency.
At this time, we are currently open to the public for visitation for families prepared to adopt same-day or next-day (within 24 hours). Please view all adoptable animals below to make sure there is a potential furry friend for your family before visiting THS, and double-check that they are currently residing at THS and are not in a foster home. The day of your visit, you will meet with one of the adoption counselors to go over the adoption contract, your new pet’s medical history, and go over any questions you may have. Each animal receives a medical exam, age-appropriate vaccines, a detailed behavior assessment, a microchip, and spay/neuter surgery if necessary before they are available for adoption.
After completing your adoption, you’ll take your first family photo with your new addition before taking your new pet home!
We are currently open to the public again! Only families that are prepared to adopt same-day or the next-day (within 24 hours) will be permitted to walk through public areas of the shelter in order to keep wait times low for families ready to adopt.
Please come prepared with an adoption application filled out and an idea of who you potentially want to add to your family! PLEASE double-check that the animal you are interested in is currently residing at the shelter, and is not residing in a foster home by clicking on the animal's picture.

Our Working Cat Program is essential for placing some of our under-socialized cats that would flourish in an outdoor environment. While we do not take in feral cats from the public, there are instances where shy, under-socialized, or feral cats do make their way through our doors. If you have a barn or outhouse and are interested in having a "mouser" around, please click below for more information!Find Out More
Our network of foster volunteers allows us to provide specialized care to more animals in need while also opening space at the shelter for more homeless pets.Foster Today
