OUR MISSION: To promote the prevention of cruelty to animals that are neglected, abused, exploited, stray or homeless.
Work within the law and in cooperation with the government, OSPCA and the public, in order to improve conditions for animals while maintaining a balanced sensitivity toward both animal and human needs.
In the early 1970’s, the Quinte Humane Society acquired Eastern Breeders property on Avonlough Road to utilize as a public shelter. Prior to this, many animals were placed with Q.H.S. members who acted as foster homes and provided care. Over the years, we have established a unique bond with our supporters whose generosity keeps our doors open. We can never thank them enough for their caring and kindness.
The QHS is a registered charity that serves all of Prince Edward and Hastings County. We are a non-profit organization that is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors using a Governance model. Our community based shelter provides a safe and caring place for as many as 2200 sick, abused, neglected and homeless animals each year.
Since 1993 we have been affiliated with the (OSPCA) Ontario Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The Quinte Humane Society and the Animal Services (the pound) are NOT the same thing! The Humane Society does NOT receive any government fundraising dollars . Our money comes from fees for service, donations, and bequeaths; if we did not have fundraisers we would no longer exist. It is because of caring, concerned people like you that we are able to help as many animals as we do. We are here for all unwanted animals (pets that can no longer be taken care of by their owners) and for the abused and neglected animals.
The Animal Service Department (the pound) is for strays and animals roaming at large and which Animal Control has picked up. They bring these animals to us to care and look after in the hopes that an owner will claim them. If not, then after 5 business days they become ours and we make all the necessary efforts to get them ready for adoption to a new forever home.
