Ontario SPCA and Humane Society

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is a registered charity that has been operating for 150 years. The Society provides care, comfort and compassion to animals in need in communities across Ontario. It values all animals and advocates to treat them with respect and kindness. The Society strives to keep pets and families together and do so through a variety of community support services, such as sheltering and adoptions, including emergency sheltering, feral cat management programs, animal transfers, food distribution, humane education, animal advocacy, and spay/neuter services. The Ontario SPCA does not receive annual government funding and relies on donations to provide programs and services to help animals in need.

Isabella’s happy tail

Isabella arrived at the Humane Society of Durham Region fearful of everything and everyone. Coming from a hoarding situation, she was fearful and anxious. With time, patience and lots of love, the animal care team helped Isabella learn to trust again to give her a chance at finding a loving forever home.
