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.

As you celebrate this New Year's Eve, be a Party Animal for Fur Angels. Ask friends and families to make a donation to ring in the New Year. A benefactor has agreed to match your donation and everyone has or knows someone who has a fur angel. Dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, turtles, wildlife along with birds and reptiles.
As our family approaches the end of one year and the beginning of the next we always take stock of where we’ve been and where we’re headed and that of course includes caring for our fur angels. This past year has been a hard one for the animal kingdom and the natural world we share with them. A year full of triumphs and tragedies, hopes fulfilled and dreams shattered.
With the glow of Christmas just behind us and New Years just around the corner, in these troubled times, animals need our help now more than ever before. The good news is that the more and more people are joining us to work ever closer for the day when the pointless abuse of animals will no longer be tolerated, as we work to build and sustain a truly “humane society.”
