The CFHS promotes the humane treatment of all animals and supports our members and other like-minded organizations that are committed to this goal.
As the convener and representative of the largest animal welfare community in Canada, we advance the welfare of compa-nion animals, farm animals and animals in research with a strong national voice promoting the interests and concerns of animal welfare to government, policy makers, industry and the public.
Since 1957, the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS) has worked to unite and strengthen humane societies & SPCAs while advocating for the humane treatment of animals in our homes, on the farm, in the lab, and in the wild.
The CFHS's member societies help animals in communities across Canada. The CFHS represents these members on issues of national importance, and provides them with information and advice to help them better serve animals in their communities.
Over the decades, the CFHS has been at the forefront of efforts to reform Canada’s shamefully lax animal cruelty law, to create rules protecting farm animals from undue suffering, and to improve the treatment of animals used in research.
The CFHS receives no government funding. It depends on the support of caring Canadians to continue promoting responsible pet ownership, fighting for effective laws to protect animals, and strengthening humane societies and SPCAs nationwide.
