Current News


We are more than ready to celebrate the arrival of spring and with this time of year come our outdoor fundraising events. We are enthusiastically gearing up for the WOOF Golf Tournament on May 25 and our PAWSitive Action Walkathon on June 8. Cruise Nights at Seaway Mall are beginning May 2 and will continue, weather permitting, every Friday evening throughout the summer until September 19.

The importance of fundraising for the WDHS Emergency Animal Relief Fund (EARF) cannot be overemphasized. When a homeless animal comes into our care and needs emergency attention and/or medical treatment to achieve well-being, it is imperative that we have the funds available to make it happen. This is possible only through the generosity of donors and continuing community support. Each time we help one animal, it is indeed a world of difference for that animal.

In addition to EARF, fundraising for the WDHS Spay/Neuter Clinic is ongoing as we prepare to open the clinic in the very near future. This is a very exciting and fiscally ambitious venture; fundraising is a key component!

Please view the Upcoming Events Poster, the PAWSitive Action Walkathon Brochure and the WOOF Golf Tournament Registration Card. As always, we greatly appreciate your support!

Calling All Volunteers!

We would like to reach out to all our volunteers ... past, present and future! Unfortunately our volunteer database ran into a glitch which has left us virtually without contact information for a good many of our volunteers. If you have volunteered for the WDHS in the last year but have not heard from us lately, we would very much appreciate hearing from you! We would like to rebuild our database as soon as possible as we are approaching our busy season for adoptathons and fundraising events.

If you have not volunteered in the past but would like to consider doing so now, we would love to hear from you as well. We could not do what we need to do for the animals without the dedication and commitment of our valued volunteers. Without a doubt, volunteers are the cornerstone of the Welland & District Humane Society. View our volunteer application. THANK YOU!!


Our Cat Adoption Centre at Seaway Mall has been extremely successful - over 1300 adoptions (and counting!) since opening in April 2012. Our dedicated volunteers who capably care for the cats, greet visitors to the centre and enthusiastically promote adoptions play a vital role in that success. We could not make this work without their commitment and passion for their feline friends!

We are always looking for mature, reliable adults to augment our "Cat Crew" volunteer team. Familiarity with cats, interacting with the public in a positive manner and the ability to carry out cleaning and infection control practices according to instructions are extremely important. Volunteers are needed for weekdays, evenings and weekends and shifts are assigned according to their availability as stipulated on the application.

If you would like to make a positive impact on the lives of many cats and kittens and turn your spare time into many rewarding moments, the Welland & District Humane Society would love to hear from you. Please complete the Cat Crew Volunteer Application and/or email whs@wellandhumanesociety.org. Thank you!!

Cleaning out your closets - good for you and good for us!

We are now providing a drop-off location for your unwanted CLOTHING, SHOES AND LINENS. These items will be put to good use by a local charitable group and according to the volume collected, a donation will be made to the WDHS. A bin is ready and waiting in our parking lot - thanks for your support!


The WDHS is pleased to partner with Pioneer Gas through their Bonus Bucks Program. Pioneer Bonus Bucks cards are available at the Shelter - use this card every time you fill up and the Bonus Bucks will be automatically transferred to the WDHS account.

Kuranda Dog Beds - Rethinking dog beds

Featured Pet
Tulie is a very sweet girl but does need to go to a home where there are no small children as she does not like to have them all over her and no dogs would be best as well. She is advertised on our adoption board at the shelter for $50.00 and she does come with a goody bag as well.
