A big thank you to Lauren! For her 10th birthday, she asked for supplies and gifts for the animals at the Humane Society instead of presents. She collected a lot of stuff! Thank you Lauren (pictured right).

4 year old Luke sold lemonade in his cowboy boots, and raised $38 for the Humane Society.  He chose to raise money for the Humane Society in memory of Shadow a lab mix who passed away.  Thank you Luke!


A great new segment by the Dan Gemus Real Estate Team. Each month, they sponsor a pet at the Humane Society and post a cute video. Check out December’s pet, Gwen! Her adoption will include a pet bed, food and toys.

Today is Giving Tuesday, and we wanted to let you know about one of the animals that you’ll help if you donate to the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society today. Her name is Baby Girl, and she came in very sick with a serious illness called parvo. She needed extensive care and treatment, and while Lauzon Veterinary Hospital has been very generous at keeping the costs controlled, her bill is still over $1,000. When you donate, you  help us save the lives of animals like Baby Girl – we can’t do it without you.

For only a few dollars a month, you can help animals like Baby Girl throughout the year. Please consider becoming a monthly donor, please click here. (You will be directed to our CanadaHelps giving page)

It’s called “Black Animal Syndrome” and it is a problem that plagues Humane Societies across the nation. Black animals have a more difficult time finding their forever homes simply because of their colour. Whether it is due to silly superstition, or because they lack the interesting patterns and colours of other available animals; black cats and dogs can sit waiting for weeks while their lighter coloured friends go home within days.  But the Humane Society is trying to change that.  This week, on Black Friday, we hope to see black animals become the most popular dogs, cats, and rabbits in our adoption centre.  All black animals (anyone with the majority of their fur solid black) will have their adoption fee reduced by 60 percent!

This Black Friday special is one day only, during adoption hours from 11am to 8pm.  Rather than fighting the crowds at the mall why not find a loving friend instead?   Discounts cannot be combined and do not apply to previously adopted animals.

Once again we are honoured by the hard work and dedication of the staff at the ScotiaBank Tecumseh branch. This year, the staff held an excellent evening of comic entertainment at the Komedy Korner to help raise funds for all the animals in our care. They also collected donations at the branch, held a raffle with some excellent prizes, and sold our Cheer for a Year tickets. ScotiaBank matched the money raised at the branch and donated a total of $8,661.04!!! We couldn’t help animals in our community without the generous donations and support of people and organizations like the staff at ScotiaBank. Thank you so much for the amazing work!
