About Simcoe and District Humane Society

The Simcoe & District Humane Society has been hard at work aiding animals in distress since the 1950's and officially chartered in January 1953.

The Foster Care Program has always been an integral part of the Society, as it has not had a physical shelter to call its own.

2004 was a great stepping-stone in the endeavor of housing our animals, as the Society purchased the property at 24 Grigg Drive, Simcoe, Ontario. As the number of stray, sick and injured animals has grown, so has the community support and the Society now has a goal to build a shelter in the near future.

SDHS relies on donations from the community, and assists as many animals possible within their means.

In 2004, the Society assisted over 160 adult cats, 309 kittens and over 130 dogs to date with approximately 380 of these animals adopted into great homes. 2005 the Society assisted 580 animals in total.

In 2006, we assisted 784 animals needing care and treatment. It was a difficult year as we battled parasites, and disease, particularly Panleukopenia or feline distemper causing a closure of foster homes for a few months. To begin 2007, some animals remain in care, still needing treatment or waiting adoption.

As of September 2007 SDHS has remained exceptionally busy, helping over 650 cats, 70 dogs, and other animals through the mandate of sick, injured and distressed. Cruelty investigations have escalated, assisting over 35 animals, some surrendered and well over 250 cruelty complaints visited. Simcoe and District Humane Society is also aiding animals unclaimed through Norfolk County Animal Control. As space in the foster care program allows, SDHS provides adoptable animals the necessary medical care, including FIV (Feline Aids) and Feline Leukemia testing for felines, Heartworm testing for canines, vaccinations, deworming, flea and other parasite treatment and microchipping for each animal. It is the Society's goal to find every adoptable animal a home to call its own!

In 2007, the Society has temporarily assisted and housed more than 35 animals, until owners have been able to provide appropriately for their pet(s).

Public Awareness and Good Pet Ownership Education has been a key component in the Society's community involvement over the last 3 years. Being involved in the community, introducing the different elements of animal care and owning a pet has been a priority with the Society, especially in a community where highly transmittable diseases are apparent.

The Society always remains grateful to those families who open their hearts and homes to all our animals during their stay in the foster care program. Thank you to those who have taken responsibility for the Mother Cats, having them spayed, vaccinated and releasing to appropriate families and homes.

Again, a special thank you goes out to our Veterinary Clinics who assist us on a daily basis and understand our needs with our animals in care.

As members, we are proud of our accomplishments and look forward to doing more with the growing numbers of animals in need.

The community's consistent support and regular donations are important to sustain the Society's ability to continue its constant and daily intake and care of those animals needing help.
