QHS is a registered charity that serves all of Prince Edward and Hastings County. We are a non-profit organization that is overseen 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. The Quinte Humane Society is not a government agency. Its money comes from donations, fundraising events, adoption fees and fees for service. The gap between the cost of care for each animals and the adoption fees charged is typically hundreds of dollars. This challenging gap is only met by donations from the community. Quinte Humane Society can only be there for pets that can no longer be taken care of by their owners or for abused and neglected animals thanks to community support.
