Animal lovers are often curious about candidates’ positions on animal welfare issues. Those positions are often not included in campaign materials or candidate debates, which can make it hard for voters to learn where candidates stand. So, for the second municipal election in a row, the Humane Society distributed a survey to all candidates asking for their views on animal issues.  We received responses from 77 candidates.  

The survey results are sorted by municipality.  Only the names of candidates who completed the survey are included; if a candidate isn’t listed then we didn’t receive a survey response from them.  

As the sheets include a lot of information, they may look hard to read when you first open them.  But if you use the “zoom” function you can make the sheet larger and review the candidates’ responses.  

Please note that the responses are being presented in these results as provided by the candidates.  As a registered charity, the Humane Society cannot endorse or recommend one candidate over another.

Our spay/neuter clinic is open to everyone, owned animals and feral.  We understand that there can be uncertainty when trying to trap a feral cat for surgery, and so we allow walk-ins for people bringing in feral cats for surgery.  Effective October 1, walk-ins will be accepted on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays between 8 and 9am only. The limit remains one per person, and walk-ins must come in live traps for their and our staff’s safety.  Please remember, if you are trying to trap a larger number of cats, you have the option of booking appointments for them.  Please don’t hesitate to ask our staff if you have any questions or click here for more info.


The Windsor/ Essex County Humane Society is looking to the future!  We are currently crafting our next 5-year strategic plan, to guide the direction we move in and the projects we focus on.  And to do that, we need your feedback!  Please take our community survey at http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07efjxpambjjq8rro9/start.  The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.

We hope you’re enjoying the long weekend! Please note that the shelter and vet clinic are closed Sunday and Monday for Labour Day, reopening with usual hours on Tuesday. We are still available for animal emergencies by calling 519-966-5751, and following the prompts to reach our emergency officer on call.


McKenna stopped by to drop of 14 beautiful blankets that she handmade for the animals here at the shelter. Thank you for keeping our furry friends comfortable while they wait for their forever home!


Esther stopped by this afternoon to donate $100 that she raised to help the animals at the Humane Society!  Part of it was from a lemonade stand that she ran, and the rest was money the Tooth Fairy left her when she lost some teeth!  Thank you for being so caring Esther!  She’s pictured with kitten Audrey, who helped us say thank you.

Erin and Dan stopped by to drop off the whopping $160 that was raised from their wedding! They had guests donate to help their animal friends at the Humane Society in order to get them to kiss! Thanks Erin and Dan, and congratulations!
