Why do we need you?
We know that pets make us happier and healthier, lowering blood pressure, helping us keep a healthy weight, alleviating depression, supporting people living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Autism, Alzheimer’s and much more. At Peterborough Humane Society, Our Pet Project is our way of thanking pets for making us healthier and happier by helping them become healthier and happier.
Our New Animal Care Centre will help more pets get or stay healthy; find their perfect people and continue the virtuous cycle of health and happiness together. In turn, this will help make the community happier and healthier by bringing new jobs, national attention and new resources to the City of Peterborough, Peterborough County, the surrounding region and beyond for generations to come.
Our new Animal Care Centre will be over 24,000 square feet and contain three programs under one roof:
- The Peterborough Humane Society’s Shelter, Adoption and Education Centre
- A High-Volume Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic to provide affordable spay and neuter services to prevent pet overpopulation and
- Canada’s first Dog Rehabilitation Centre created in partnership with the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society
