Our Mission

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.

Kingston Humane Society’s Mission is:

  • To care for injured, abused and homeless animals
  • To return or find homes for these animals
  • To promote/organize spay and neuter programs
  • To undertake cruelty investigations
  • To provide emergency rescues
  • To provide humane education
  • To assist with the educational programs for St. Lawrence College

We Are:

  • A non-profit charitable animal welfare organization.
  • Supported solely by the community, receiving no government funding to assist with our mission.
  • The only open shelter in the region, accepting every animal brought to us.
  • Committed to our mission and work with reputable and established rescue groups, province-wide.
  • A last resort, providing haven from the hazards and cruelty of life on the street or neglect.
  • An affiliate of the OSPCA, with the authority to investigate complaints of animal cruelty.

The Kingston Humane Society is Not:

  • Associated with, nor do we endorse, any particular animal welfare group (other than the OSPCA) including other humane societies or rescue groups.
  • Able to provide medical or boarding services for owned animals.

We Need Your Help!

As a registered charity dependent upon donations, we take very seriously our role as stewards of these funds, respecting the intent and wishes with which they were given. We encourage the public to use caution and fully research any organization prior to making the decision to donate.
