the

pumpkin fund

Every week the Windsor-Essex County Humane Society receives hundreds of calls regarding animals in distress, we take in animals in need of care every single day. Some of that care is routine, but other animals require very expensive referral surgeries or treatments. In 2004 we established the “Pumpkin Fund”, named after a little puppy who was found in a pile of pumpkins at a local supermarket around Halloween. She was brought to the Humane Society where the tiny puppy was found to be severely malnourished, and suffering from an infection and a severe skin condition.

We were able to provide Pumpkin’s extraordinary care because of the response of our supporters to our pleas for financial assistance and today we continue to utilize the ‘Pumpkin Fund’ to provide extraordinary care for homeless animals in need.
