The Gimli Humane Society (formerly the Gimli Animal Shelter) was created in 2004 by an animal control officer who decided that euthanizing unclaimed dogs was wrong. He formed an organization dedicated to animal welfare and started finding homes for the many unclaimed dogs in this community.
In 2005 he secured enough funding to purchase the materials to build the current shelter.
It took 8 months and hundreds of hours of volunteering but he managed to realize his dream.The current shelter is a 1600 square foot facility that can house 13 dogs and as many cats. Since its inception the Gimli Humane Society has found homes for over 1000 cats and dogs that otherwise risked being humanely euthanized. We are a medium sized shelter in a small community and struggle financially. Expensive veterinary procedures such as orthopedic and dental surgeries over and above spaying/neutering, vaccinating and tatooing can become a drain on our limited resources. Add to this the fact that we operate at full capacity year round and you can appreciate our need for your help. We only feed our cats and dogs the highest quality food available. It’s not cheap! You cannot save as many lives as we do on love alone. Our ability to continue doing the very important work that we do truly depends on you.
