Working across the street and across the country, The Humane Society of Canada is the only organization of its kind helping companion animals, horses and farm animals, lab animals, wildlife and the environment. A registered charity we rely entirely on the goodwill and donations of our supporters. Caring people like you.
For the elderly, their pets are often their only companions in an otherwise lonely existence. If you have ever felt the nudge of a cold nose, listened to a contented purr, or felt the warm beat of their hearts, you know exactly what I am talking about. Scientific studies show us what we already know. Living with our pets helps us cope with a wide range of social and health benefits. Encouraging everyone to adopt from animal rescue groups and shelters means more permanent loving homes which is especially true in the case of seniors.
