Pet Valu in Belle River went above and beyond today. Throughout the month of October, their staff collected donations from their generous customers of over $1700 worth of products for their “Thanks for Giving” campaign. From canned cat food, dog treats, litter, and more, these supplies will help keep tails wagging at the shelter for quite a while!

An enormous thank you to the staff and customers of Pet Valu Belle River for their incredible generousity.

Kaylee & Sydney stopped by to visit with the animals, and drop off a cart full of items to help her furry friends here at the Humane Society! Sydney had requested gifts for the animals instead of gifts for herself for her birthday. Thank you for being so kind and generous Sydney!


Jeff stopped by to drop off donations he generously collected over Halloween. Not only that, but he also brought in loads of kettle corn for the staff and volunteers to enjoy! Thanks for thinking of both the animals and our staff and volunteers Jeff!

Brittany is a big fan of black pets, and wanted to help raise awareness that black animals have more difficulty getting adopted. She made and is selling these adorable skeleton keychains for $1 each to show that underneath, everyone is the same, no matter their colour!

All proceeds will be donated to the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society.

If you would like a keychain of your own, feel free to text Brittany at 226-246-2714.



This amazing little girl is Charlotte. For her 5th birthday, she asked for donations to help the animals at the Humane Society instead of presents! Thank you for being so generous and caring Charlotte!
