The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is privileged to be Ontario’s animal welfare charity since 1873. In our role as a charity, we provide a variety of mission-based programs and resources focused on providing for animal welfare, including community-based sheltering, shelter health & animal wellness, high-volume spay/neuter services, animal rescue and relief, animal advocacy, Indigenous partnership programs, humane education and animal protection services.

Working together we can make a difference in the lives of countless animals in need.



The Ontario SPCA’s mission is to facilitate and provide for province-wide leadership on matters relating to the prevention of cruelty to animals and the promotion of animal welfare.


The vision of the Ontario SPCA is to be the recognized authority on animal welfare issues and to make a measurable difference for animals. The Ontario SPCA is an integral part of each community, promoting mutually beneficial human-animal interactions, and is viewed as a desirable organization for volunteerism and support.

The future that the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is working to create includes:

        • All Ontarians respect and appreciate animals
        • Ontario has no homeless animals and no animal abuse




The Society’s goal is to be a strong, unified and collaborative organization dedicated to the cultivation of a compassionate Ontario for all animals.
