We are Non-Profit:
The Cambridge and District Humane Society of Cambridge, Ontario, Canada is a non-profit organization and dependent on the generosity of the community it serves. For this reason we ask individuals and groups of our community to support us. This page is amended on a regular basis to reflect our needs at a given time. Please come back regularly to check for changes. We hope that you will help with our endeavor. If you are supporting us presently, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you.
The Cambridge and District Humane Society does not receive any funds from the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA).
The Many Ways You Can Help
Sponsor a Cage
For as little as $30-50 a month you will be helping to provide accommodations, food, and medical care for the species of animal you have chosen to sponsor.
To show our appreciation an engraved plaque with your name will be displayed on the cage for the amount of time chosen.
Legacies & Bequests
Legacies are vital to the work of the Cambridge & District Humane Society. The CDHS relies entirely on the generosity of the public to promote and implement the mission statement and beliefs of the CDHS, so please remember your gift for the animals when planning your estate. Keep in mind the tax advantages of donating shares in public companies. If you would like to assure the future work of the CDHS through a provision in your will, this general wording is suggested. "I give, devise and bequeath to the Cambridge & District Humane Society for the work they do with animals the sum of $_______ and/or specifically described property." We suggest you discuss such provisions with your attorney. Thank you for your ongoing support of the work of the CDHS.
