Kai decided to make and sell chocolate covered pretzels to raise funds for the animals at the Humane Society.  He stopped by today and dropped off $400!  He also brought in a bed that he and his mom made from his old sweatshirt – Mufasa the cat quickly curled up for a nap in it.  

We were honoured to share Kai’s 10th birthday with him.  Happy birthday Kai, and thank you for being so caring!

These are some fantastic student’s from the University of Windsor Windsor Odette School of Business. For a project where they had to raise money for a charity, Group #5 – Shantal, Kelvin, Marc and Zack – chose WECHS, and raised a whopping $600! Thank you so much for your hard work!

Aiden wanted to help the animals instead of getting birthday presents for his 3rd birthday. He collected $200 for the animals – what an amazing young man! Thank you Aiden!


This is Dylan, and at only 9 years old, he is already thinking about giving and helping others. He saved his money and collected empties to exchange for money, researched what the animals here at the Humane Society, and bought all the wonderful food and toys seen in the photo to help his furry friends.

Thank you for being so generous Dylan!

For her 5th birthday Allyson collected donations to help animals instead of gifts for herself.  Her mom said that “she learned that giving to others can be just as great as getting herself”.  Thank you Allyson for being so kind – you’re an inspiration even at only 5 years old!

Allyson and her friends picked out lots of special toys that the animals love!

The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society is urging members of the public to come forward with information about a deceased dog found near an abandoned building at the corner of Louis and Cataraqui, Windsor.  The body of the dog was found by a member of the public late on March 8; a necropsy indicated that the dog has been there for some time – potentially several months although a specific time frame is difficult to determine.  The dog was an unneutered male, medium sized, pit-bull type dog, about 4 years of age.  He was wearing a choke chain collar. 

Veterinary findings indicate that the dog was starved to death over a period of many weeks.  It is believed that he likely died in another location, and his body was disposed of in the location where he was found. 

Anyone with information about who may have owned or starved this dog is asked to call the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society cruelty investigations department at 519-966-5751, ext 16 or Crimestoppers at 519-258-8477.  You are not required to provide your name to make a report.  You may be eligible for a reward through Crimestoppers, and the Humane Society is also offering a $500 reward for information leading to charges against this dog’s abuser.

This wonderful person is Jennifer, seen here with a very happy George, and for the past few years, she has been participating in Cupcake Day. Every year, she blows us away with the amount she raises through selling cupcakes at her work – the City of Windsor Social Services – as well as tickets for raffle baskets she puts together. This year, her goal was $1500, and within the first hour of her Cupcake Day sale, she had already raised $1000! In the end, Jennifer raised a whopping $2064.70! AMAZING! Thank you Jennifer, from everyone here at WECHS!

We will never fail to be amazing and touched by the generosity of the young people in our community, and Chloe is no exception. She decided that instead of asking for presents for her 11th birthday, she wanted her friends and family to provide donations to help the animals at the Humane Society. Thank you for being so selfless and kind Chloe!
