The bond between humans and animals is a remarkable thing.
We know first-hand that pets bring us companionship and unconditional love. Research is now demonstrating what we have long suspected: animals make us healthier, improve many ailments and chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and PTSD, and enhance both our physical and mental health.
At Peterborough Humane Society, we understand that happy, healthy animals make for happy, healthy people. It is one of the main reasons we are building the new Peterborough Animal Care Centre at 1999 Technology Drive.
Our vision is to create a state-of-the-art Centre where animals are nurtured and cared for, to foster meaningful relationships between people and their new pets, and match more pets with their forever families.
With your support we will build an accessible and sustainable centre where advancements in animal care, humane education and research are made, and our local communities and four-legged friends are safe and healthy.
The Peterborough Animal Care Centre will be 24,000 square feet and the first-of-its-kind in Canada, bringing together three facilities under one roof, Peterborough Humane Society’s:
- Adoption & Education Centre
- Regional Spay and Neuter Clinic, and,
- Ontario SPCA’s Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre
Our Pet Project, the capital campaign to build the new Peterborough Animal Care Centre has raised over $6.6 million of the $10 million required to build the new Centre.
