Other Ways to Donate

You can become a partner in animal welfare by helping provide treatment for animals all year.

Your donations, bequests, and fundraising are the primary sources of revenue for our adoption programs, humane education programs, cruelty investigations, pet food bank, and many of the other programs and services that we are able to offer to the community thanks to your support. The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society is a registered charity and all donations are tax deductible.

Donate Your Vehicle

Donate a Car Canada accepts your vehicle donations for the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society. They provide you with free towing in many areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. When you donate your RV, boat, motorcycle or other vehicle to us through Donate a Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction depending on its condition, age and location. They take care of all the details to make your donation as easy as possible. After your donation is complete, the Humane Society will send you a tax receipt.

Tribute Gifts

Do you know someone who has recently lost a family member, either human or animal? You can make a donation to honour them and we will send a card expressing your condolences. If you wish to make a tribute gift, you can do so by calling 519-966-5751, come in person or visiting our Donate Now page. To donate online, leave a message with instructions on what you would like your card to say, who and where you would like it sent, and we will take care of the rest.

Consider Running a Fundraising Event

Third party events help us build relationships in the community and raise public awareness with new people we could not reach without you. This helps bring new donors, adopters and volunteers to the Humane Society, making the effect of your event that much wider!

Other Ways to Make a Difference

If you are the guest of honour at an event and prefer not to receive gifts, consider asking guests to make a donation to the Humane Society instead. Call 519-966-5751, ext. 123 or email events@windsorhumane.org to order donation cards!
