The Kingston Humane Society was founded in 1884 to provide shelter and care for homeless animals and investigate cases of animal cruelty in Kingston and surrounding communities. We promote responsible pet ownership and compassion and respect for all animals.
We’re back! We love our cross-Canada walks, but this year we’re bringing it back home.
We’re excited to welcome the whole community to an in-person signature KHS event: Big Paws. This will be the 23rd annual Big Paws and the first in-person KHS event in 2 years – one that will be physically distanced, but will also mark the start of better times and celebrate the community that has been carrying us through the pandemic.
Big Paws in City Park participants will go on a guided walk with their four-legged friend through the park and along Lake Ontario, collecting pledges from friends and family ahead of time to support KHS. You can register now, start collecting pledge money, and send us pictures and videos of you and your pup getting ready for the big day.
