About Us

Peterborough Humane Society advocates for the welfare of animals by improving their lives, alleviating suffering, rescuing, providing shelter, healing, facilitating adoption and reducing pet overpopulation. We are the largest animal shelter in Peterborough County and the only open admission shelter. Being open admission means that we must take in all stray or surrendered companion animals. All animals surrendered to PHS receive the necessary vet care, vaccinations and are spayed/neutered prior to being adopted out to amazing forever homes. We don’t receive any government funding, or funding from any welfare group for this work, and therefore rely on donations from the community.
