Our Response to COVID-19 Concerns

Due to Covid-19 concerns and to support the Government and Public Health protocol for social distancing we have restricted our public access to APPOINTMENT ONLY!

Our focus during this time is keeping our team of staff healthy, to ensure we can continue to care for the community’s animals. It is imperative that we do not get sick and have therefore implemented the following changes to our services.

Animal Services

Please call 519-623-6323 for animal services.
Animal Services is responding to calls regarding sick and injured wildlife, dog bites, dangerous dogs and stray animals.

Dog Licensing

If you want to purchase your dog tag or have questions regarding your dog tag please visit  https://cambridgehumanesociety.org/animal-services/ or call 1-855-249-1370

Lost Animals

If you have lost your animal or need to claim your animal from the City Pound, please call the Lost Pet Line at 519-623-7722 and dial extension 223.Please leave a message. Your call will be returned within 24 hours.


We thank you in advance for thinking of our animals during this time of uncertainty. Donations of supplies can be left at our front door at any time. We have staff on rotating shifts and we check for donations throughout the day and night.

We have a wish list posted on our website and through Amazon for needed supplies https://cambridgehumanesociety.org/how-to-help/#donate

Monetary donations can be made by contacting Darline at development@cambridgehumanesociety.org or DONATE ONLINE


While complying with social distancing our Adoption Counselor will be conducting interviews via phone and scheduling meet-and-greets in person at the shelter in an effort to proceed with adoptions in some capacity.
Check out our website https://cambridgehumanesociety.org/adoption/ to see our furry friends in need of forever homes. Contact our Adoption Counselor at adoptions@cambridgehumanesociety.org to find out more information on how you can become a new pet parent.

We do not have evidence that companion animals, including pets, can spread COVID-19.


At this point we are working through potential adoptions and expediting our new Foster Program to launch shortly. Please keep an eye on our social media pages and our website for updates. Thank you in advance for offering up a space in your home for an animal in need.

We thank you for your patience and support during this time. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at 519-623-7722 or by email at exec.director@cambridgehumanesociety.org
