The Home Stretch

Help us reach the finish line…

Peterborough Humane Society (PHS) has launched ‘The Home Stretch’ Campaign to raise the $3 million needed to meet the fundraising goal for the Our Pet Project capital campaign for the new Peterborough Animal Care Centre (PACC) at 1999 Technology Drive.

PHS moved to the new location in January 2023, with a grand opening celebration planned for June 24, 2023. However, more funds are still needed to bridge the gap and meet the campaign goal. To date, nearly $10 million has been raised; the remaining $3 million will be used to pay off the construction loan.

Close the Fundraising Gap

“This centre was built for the community, by the community. We are close to our goal, and need some additional support to close out the fundraising gap so we can dedicate all of our efforts and future funding to go directly to the care, programs and services for animals in need. We are incredibly grateful to all our donors that have helped us along the way. Our community’s amazing support has helped us make this decade-long dream of becoming a premier animal wellness organization a reality. This home stretch will allow us to finish the project, and allow us to set our sights on supporting more animals and individuals for generations to come.” shared Shawn Morey, Executive Director of Peterborough Humane Society

Gold Standard for Animal Wellness

The move from the original 6,000 ft2 shelter on Lansdowne Street to the 24,000 ft2 Centre on Technology Drive in Peterborough has allowed for a Canadian-first with three programs under one roof;

  • Peterborough Humane Society’s Adoption and Education Centre
  • Peterborough Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic
  • and the Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre run by the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society.

Since the move less than 5 months ago, over 200 animals have been adopted, over 1000 have been spayed/neutered and 13 dogs have been rehabilitated.

Supporting the Underdog

“Since opening the Ontario SPCA’s Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre, we are overjoyed to have witnessed the transformation of dogs who needed this specialized care to help them find loving homes. We are able to support each of our dogs with an individualized care plan, which allows us to work one-on-one to create a trusting and comfortable space for them.

Being a part of the process to find these dogs homes is such a rewarding experience. We are transforming these dogs and finding them homes with adopters who are eager to continue their support and care plans once bringing home their new friend. We are so excited for our first year of offering this program and how many lives we can positively impact.”

A New Beginning

“We have already seen a tremendous impact on our community since moving into our new facility, and we are hopeful that more donors will join us to allow us to reach our goal, and allow us to provide even more programs and services to support our local and regional communities. We encourage folks to come and visit the new Peterborough Animal Care Centre. Our doors are open, and we look forward to continuing our organizational mission within this incredible new Centre. We’re in the home stretch – but our commitment to improve animal wellness will never stop.”

“I just wanted to say thank you. My nine month old Jack Russell pup came in to be neutered. The whole process was smooth – the staff are great, and Ozzy has recovered perfectly.
Thank you for offering this much needed service in our area, and thank you for taking such great care of my boy while he was there.”

“The Peterborough Animal Care Centre is an amazing event facility! Great space for parking, easy to find, and very spacious. The Humane Education Room is very ample and accommodating to various activities with children and adults. We appreciated that it was easily accessible to meet all needs and abilities. We look forward to having many more events at the PACC.”

“Ben is settling in SO well! He’s been very comfortable, loving and trusting!

A huge thank you to everyone at PHS for taking care of so many animals and letting us adopt our favourite boy! He is so happy and safe and he wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for everyone there. He will be so loved forever, I couldn’t thank you all.”
