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.
We are currently operating through curbside adoption appointments by EMAIL ONLY at this time and are not open to the public for visitations. Please contact the email address listed in the pet's bio to set up an adoption appointment! We unfortunately are not able to return phone calls about adoption inquiries at this time and are processing all adoptions through email.
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 closed to the public for visitation, and are operating through curbside adoptions. Once you decide on an animal, you are able to schedule a curbside adoption appointment to come to the shelter by emailing the email address listed in the pet's bio. The day of your appointment, you will meet with one of the adoption counselors at your car 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.

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
