We are a NO KILL Humane Society, affiliated with the Ontario SPCA since 1992, and registered as a Canadian Charitable Organization. By NO KILL we mean exactly that. We will not euthanize any creature in our care unless it is so ill or injured that reasonable veterinary intervention cannot save its life or ensure that it will enjoy a reasonable quality of life, or it has a personality disorder so extreme that it can never be adopted or maintained in foster care. We will not release any animal in our care for use in medical experimentation and to the best of our ability, we screen prospective adopters to satisfy ourselves that the animal will be going into a loving and safe environment. Although we are primarily involved with cats and dogs we also handle other small domestic animals, wild life and farm animals.
Fund raising is an on-going challenge for us. All of our directors and volunteers serve without pay. We reimburse only approved, essential expenses and most volunteers waive expense reimbursement or donate the funds back to us. We have no permanent employees and operate completely with volunteers, contracting out those services that we cannot find volunteers to provide. We work closely with other Humane Societies and Animal Rescue organizations and, in the recent years have placed animals in homes as far away as Québec and Illinois.
On average, about 500 animals come though our very small facility annually. Not surprisingly, that involves a lot of food, litter etc. and of course veterinarian bills for the animals’ maladies and for the spaying, neutering and vaccinations which we do with every animal, 12 weeks and up, prior to adoption.
