Who We Are

Protecting animals since 1949, the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society is a registered charity that provides temporary shelter for more than 6,500 animals each year. The Humane Society's primary concern is ensuring the welfare of all animals, large and small, wild and domesticated. We achieve our goal by providing animal care, adoption and fostering services, public education programs and through cruelty investigations. We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Adopting a friend

Once you have decided on the animal you wish to adopt, you will be asked to fill in an application, which includes asking questions, see proof of idenity and asked for Veterinary references, particularly when you have other animals at home. This is simply to protect the health of adoption candidates and the pets you already have. Remember to ask the adoption worker any questions about housetraining, obedience taining, veterinarey care, how to deal with fleas and ticks, and anything else you can think of. Everything we do is for the best interest of the animals in our care and is aimed at giving them the possible chance of finding a permanent home. Adoption Prices; Puppies under 6 months - $265.00 (Plus Windsor Licence tag $17.00) Dogs - $ 215.00 (Plus City of Windsor Licence Tag $17.00 ) Cats - $ 140.00 This price includes: * A spayed or neutered pet. * First Vaccinations * additional boosters will be required; * Micro chipping * 1month free health insurance * General Deworming and Advantage (Flea Treatment) * FeLv/FIV testing done on cats.

Mirco chipping is a safe, effective means to trace your pet should it become lost. The procedure takes only a few minutes and is your lost pets ticket home. Most clinics carry microchip readers and can assist locating owners of lost pets. Shelter Care is a 30 day FREE Pet Insurance that becomes active 48 hours after adoption. Coverage is up to $500 per incident and is offered on a reimbursement basis. There is a 24 hour waiting period on all applications for adoption.
