Be Apart of Our Shelter Family
The Cambridge & District Humane Society is supported by the generosity of people like you. There are many ways to “help us to help them” From donations to volunteering your time, planning events to attending events. Some of our wonderful animal lovers have even left a donation in their wills! Choose how you would like to help. Every penny and every minute you have to spare is appreciated!
For more information on how you can help please call us at (519) 623-7722.
Help Us Help Them
Resources are used to care for the homeless animals in our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our services would not exist without volunteers, and donations. If you have volunteered your time or donated to our animals the Cambridge & District Humane Society team would like to sincerely thank you!
The animals appreciate your kindness!
Our animals and services depend on a number of fundraising and promotional events throughout the year. Money raised ensures that we have sustainable financial resources.
You can help contribute to providing an essential service for homeless animals in our community. With your support we are able to provide enrichment to the animals who stay longer in our shelter due to age, injury, illness, surgery, or necessary behavioral training. Enrichment means that we give love, one on one companionship, as well as new toys to keep the animals stimulated.
Our new Compassion Fund helps marginal income families with the cost of cremation. Our new Pet Trust program allows for continued care of animal companions in situations of an owner’s long term illness or death.
Fostering is important for injured animals in recovery and those who are too young to be adopted yet. We also partner with wildlife rescues for injured wildlife that can be rehabilitated.
We Are a Registered Charity
Cash, gift cards, & item donations are accepted and appreciated! Tax receipts are provided for all donations over $20. Monthly donors receive a single tax receipt at the end of the year.
Monthly Donations Assist in Supporting
The Animal’s Compassion Fund
The Compassion Fund was created to recognize the unmet need in our community for financial assistance for people with marginal incomes who experience an emergency veterinary situation or have lost their beloved pet and cannot afford cremation expenses. This fund is available through the generous donations and net proceeds from pet cremation services for the general public. For more information and to see if you qualify contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
