Animal Services Update 

The community is reminded that having a plan in place for their pets is critical. Individuals who become sick or require hospitalization will need to have someone to take care of their animals.

The Georgina Animal Shelter and Adoption Centre appreciates donations, however, at this time we ask residents to hold on to them for now until the centre re-opens to the public. Any donations left at the door will have to be disposed of as it is not known who or where they came from.
