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!

A very unique kitten is currently up for adoption at the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society. Four month old Klinger is a male tortoiseshell cat, an outcome estimated to occur only once in every 3,000 tortoiseshell cat births.  The gene that controls orange and black fur colour is found on the X chromosome.  Females have two X chromosomes, while males have an XY combination, which means that normally only female cats can have orange and black fur. To be a male tortoiseshell cat, he must have three sex chromosomes: two XXs and one Y.

Klinger and his siblings were brought to the Humane Society by a good Samaritan who found them in Leamington.  All are currently looking for homes.  In anticipation of the demand to adoption Klinger, adoption applications will be taken until the end of the day Saturday, with the ultimate adopter being chosen at random from all qualified applicants.

For everyone not lucky enough to take home Klinger, there are dozens of other adorable kittens seeking loving homes. To help those adopters feel lucky as well all cat and kitten adopters who adopt a second feline will get the second adoption free for the remainder of the month of July. 

What’s better than one cat? Two! From July 20-31, 2018, all cats and kittens are adopt one, get one free! Free adoption applies to the lower adoption fee.

Check out some of the great kids who’ve stopped by recently! Hope collected donations for her 7th birthday instead of asking for gifts – happy belated birthday Hope!  And while she didn’t want her photo taken, we also want to thank Calleigh from Kingsville Public School who donated $55 that she and her friends Holly and Kalila raised by selling Harry Potter magic wands that they made themselves. We want to send a big thank you out to all these awesome kids!

Ruby and Owen decided to make a lemonade stand to help their animal friends here at the Humane Society, making lemonade and selling cupcakes and brownies. They brought in the $51 they raised – amazing! Thank you so much for all of your hard work!


This is Morgan, and instead of asking for gifts for herself, she asked her friends and family to help her furry friends at the Humane Society with donations to celebrate her 7th birthday. She stopped by to donate a whopping $222! Thank you for being so kind Morgan, and happy birthday from everyone here at the Humane Society!


This is Molly, and at 8 years old, she’s already thinking more of others than herself! At her yard sale, she sold freezies and water to raise money to buy all of these wonderful supplies to help the cats at the Humane Society.

Thank you so much Molly!
