The Alliston & District Humane Society is an affiliate of the Ontario Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. An affiliate has its own board of directors and is responsible for its own finances and policies. Any money raised in our area stays in our area.
We receive NO government funding for our operational costs
100% Volunteer Run
The ADHS has been in operation since 1988 and is comprised entirely of volunteers. We are the only shelter in Ontario that currently functions with NO PAID STAFF. Your donations go directly to the animals.
OUR MISSION AND NO KILL PHILOSOPHY
ADHS attempts to provide shelter for stray and unwanted animals with priority given to abused and neglected animals. ADHS strives for a 100 % adoption rate, with a NO KILL policy for all animals deemed adoptable.
ADHS opened its first permanent shelter and adoption center on December 23, 2010. We run a dog program, a cat program and a small animal program. As well, ADHS provides a lost and found reporting service, humane education programs and wildlife services to our communities.
