The Peterborough Humane Society is one step closer to their capital campaign goal. Local law firm, Miskin Law, has donated $50,000 towards the new Peterborough Animal Care Centre (PACC) at 1999 Technology Drive.

On July 14th a dedication ceremony for the new Miskin Law Boardroom took place, with all Miskin staff and their dogs in attendance. Murray Miskin, the founder of Miskin Law stated “We are so happy to be here, with our beloved pets, to celebrate the new facilities. Today, and only today, this room belongs to our dogs.

“The PACC’s Adoption and Education Centre, including spaces like the Boardroom will allow us to expand our services. We are able to not only offer more opportunities to our staff, but also provide a community space for individuals, local businesses and service groups looking to rent out a space for meetings and functions.” says Morey.
