Instead of asking for presents for her 9th birthday, Alivia asked for money to help out the animals at the Humane Society. She raised an amazing $300!! That money will go a long way to helping the animals in our care. Thank you for your generosity Alivia!

Celebrating World Spay Day with $25 Off Coupons!

February 25 is World Spay Day, an international day to encourage the spaying and neutering of companion animals. The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society is excited to be celebrating World Spay Day by distributing 250 coupons worth $25 off any spay or neuter at the Windsor/ Essex County Humane Society Veterinary Clinic.

Coupons will be handed out at the Humane Society (1375 Provincial Road, Windsor) on Tuesday, February 25th, 2014 from 8 am – 6 pm only. One coupon per person, and you must be present to receive a coupon. We hope that by providing these discounts on our already low spay/neuter prices that we will continue to increase the number of animals in our community who are spayed or neutered.

The Humane Society’s veterinary clinic was built to increase access to spay/neuter in our community, and is open to anyone. Since it opened late in 2011 we have spayed or neutered almost 9,000 animals. For more information about the clinic please visit To book an appointment call the clinic at 519-966-1118.


Tomorrow is National Cupcake Day, and we’d like to send a huge thank you out to everyone who is baking (and buying) cupcakes to support the animals at the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society!

If you haven’t yet sponsored a baker and arranged to get your cupcakes, here are a few opportunities to satisfy your sweet tooth and help animals at the same time:

Border City Cakes and Pretty Sweet Bake Shoppe will be selling cupcakes at two locations –PetWise Pet Supplies and Rogues Gallery Comics.

The Windsor Animal Action Group at the University of Windsor will also be selling cupcakes from 9-3 in the CAW Student Centre.

If you’re baking cupcakes for tomorrow please email us your sponsorship page or details of where you will be selling your cupcakes and we’ll add it here!


Nine year old Maya set a goal of gathering 200 items to help homeless animals – we’re pretty sure she beat her goal! Thank you Maya for being such a caring kid! The animals say thanks too!




We were so proud of the grade 4/5 kids at Heatherington School who raised $370.55 at a bake sale to help homeless animals!  Thank you so much for your generosity and support!

In the past few year throughout Windsor and Essex County veterinary clinics and the Humane Society have seen a dramatic increase in the incidences of parvovirus in dogs and panleukopenia in cats.  Both of these viruses are extremely contagious, and typically fatal if left untreated.  Sadly, it is likely that this increase can be attributed to too many unvaccinated dogs and cats because both diseases are completely preventable with routine vaccinations.  The Humane Society urges all pet owners to ensure that their dogs and cats have current vaccinations.

To help increase the number of animals who are vaccinated in our community, a number of veterinary clinics have stepped forward to participate in a special vaccine drive. The following clinics are offering a special for two weeks only from February 15-28, where a brief exam and basic vaccines (rabies and DA2PP vaccines for dogs; rabies and FVRCP vaccines for cats) will be available for $50 (plus tax).  Pet owners must call the clinics directly to book an appointment.  Clinic reserve the right to limit appointments under this promotion.

We hope this promotion will help increase the percentage of animals in our community who are vaccinated, and we express our sincere appreciation to these clinics for participating.

The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society is getting into the Olympic spirit with a special adoption promotion.  During the entire winter games, adopters will have the chance to win 10 percent, 25 percent, or even 50 percent off their adoption fee!  When Canada wins, our adopters win because they’ve found a new best friend, and the animals win because they’ve found a forever home.

Whenever a Canadian athlete wins a medal, all adopters who applied to adopt in the day (24 hours) prior to the win will receive a discount on their adoption fee.  A gold medal will result in a 50 percent discount, with 25 and 10 percent discounts for silver and bronze.  The discount applies to the adoption of any animal, and cannot be combined with any other offers.
