Pet Adoptions



Thank you for enquiring about adopting a pet from us. On seeking to adopt a Pet, you should have considered what type of Pet you are looking for. Size, breed, looks, etc. We would suggest that you pay us a visit at  59 Alice Street, Regents Park, Johannesburg to view the animals in our care first.

Alternatively, go to our gallery and view the stray animals in out care to give you an idea of some of the animals that need Good Homes.

We have many different dogs and cats, available, mostly crossbreeds but there are also a few thoroughbreds too. We will tell you as much information about the animal/s that you are interested in, if they are available and suitable for you. We then may do a property inspection to check that the property is secure for them, has enough space and suitable shelter. We pass the property according to the size of the animal required (small, medium, large, fighting breed, etc), not a specific dog and we also work strictly on a "first come-first served" basis. We will not book dogs in advance.   IMG_0934a
IMG_0929a   This means that you can change your mind and the property inspection remains valid for between 3 to 12 months as long as the property remains unchanged. Once the property has passed, and depending if the animal is available, you would return to adopt an animal/s, do the paperwork, pay for the animal and purchase any food or pet products if required. In certain cases, we also advise that, if it is best, we first do an introduction between our animals and yours. Our adoption fee covers one vaccination, a Rabies vaccination if the animal is over 4 months of age. Sterilisation is also included and may be done at adoption or the puppy and kitten returned to the AACL at 6 months of age (certain conditions apply) for this procedure. We also include 3 weeks of free veterinary treatment should it get sick, an identity disc and (1) one year free membership to the League.

  • Never give an animal as a gift - be it a birthday or Xmas present;
  • Never give a child a puppy as a present - the puppy becomes a big dog and the child grows older and with it the novelty of a puppy ceases to exist;
  • Avoid buying a Pet from a Pet-Shop;
  • Remember that many animals bred will eventually become unwanted and/or abandoned animals.


  • A Pet is a LIFE's commitment, and not just a passing phase.
  • Be a responsible pet owner and teach others to be the same.
