How to Help

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!
