    Let's take an example of a dog adoption site.

    the site structure looks something like this:

    site.com
    site.com/dogs-for.adoption/
    site.com/dogs-for.adoption/dog/The-Snoppy-Dog
    site.com/dogs-for.adoption/dog/Rex-The-Dog
    site.com/dogs-for.adoption/dog/Lucious-Malfoy-Dog
    site.com/dogs-for.adoption/dog/Harry-Dog

    The only pages with really good content are
    site.com - Initial Page
    site.com/dogs-for.adoption/ - List of the Dogs

    All other pages have very small content.
    Information such as Name, race, color, weight, vaccines, transportation price, city, peculiarities, etc. and not much to write beyond a few lines like "A very beautiful, lively, cheerful dog with a spot on its nose.

    These pages can each be online for a few days, a few hours, a few weeks, a few months, very random. It depends on how long the dog takes to be adopted.

    The question what, what EXACTLY to do with these pages? Since all will have low contextual content?

    Home Page:
    Low amount of content = thin content. Unless they have incoming links I may just obviate them.

    Home Page:
    So pretty much a Craigslist style site.

    Increase the content length just a little. Add a back story maybe.

    Once the dog is adopted simply display in on the page, don't remove the page itself. Maybe put in in a different category on site.

    Look how this site is doing it:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=site:adoptapet.com

    They have half a million indexed pages mostly listings. Indexed too.

    Available:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=sit...5986911-west-new-york-new-jersey-mountain-cur

    Adopted:
    Make sure they are structured properly. If they are the deepest pages, they should link to homepage. (that's the most basic silo)

    They are ranking #1 for "dog adoption" btw. Obviously they are doing something right.

    The content is original and caters what visitors are looking for, there is no limit number of pages on your website. Search engines won't you for "too many pages". On the flip side not having enough pages can also be detrimental.

    Just make sure that all content on those deep pages is useful to the visitor that may end up on that page. Don't worry about the length of content. Don't fluff. If you were adopting the dog, what would you want to see on the page? That should be the general idea with the content. You are providing a solution to the visitor. No need to be over the top. People just want to know what they are looking for. A good indication of what should be on that page beyond your own topics should be a quick top 10 competitor analysis to see where you stand.

    And I like the comment about changing the category once adopted mentioned by tiiberius . This would work well.

    Basic information about each dog doesn’t make for good content. However, instead of losing them totally, why not write more? People love to read the heartwarming stories of how and where the dogs were found, for example. You could also write about what the dogs’ personalities are like, if they get along with kids, and so on. Also, people love seeing success stories, so once the dogs are adopted, you could post before and after photos of them

    Its impossible to write more 100 words in each page.

    Whats about use canonical in all profile pages poiting to the main dog list pages? (The page I Really need to rank)

    Its a good idea?
