The Peterborough Humane Society, a registered charitable organization dependent on public donations, was established in 1941. As an Affiliated Society of the Ontario SPCA, with the mandate to facilitate and provide for the prevention of cruelty to animals and their relief therefrom, our Humane Society offers a wide range of vital services to the community. Working in cooperation with many agencies and departments we continue to promote responsible pet ownership concepts through community outreach, one-on-one encounters with residents and the use of legal action as the last resort. Approximately 1,300 animals are received at the shelter each year, many of which are lost, injured or abandoned.Read More
