Update from OSPCA

Update from OSPCA

Update on CVO investigation into St. Catharines Veterinarian Dr. Rehki, Skyway Animal Hospital.

The practice of veterinary medicine, and any concerns the public may have in regards to that, is regulated by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO). The legislation can be viewed on their website

An investigation was conducted by the CVO and as this was not our investigation we cannot speak to the details. However, our Affiliate, the Lincoln County Humane Society has been in touch with the CVO regarding concerns of alleged animal cruelty.

Matching Local Seniors with our Lovable Senior Pets

We've started a brand new campaign in order to match our awesome senior animals with local seniors who will love them exactly as they are. So far we are just working with cats but hope to soon be able to find loving homes for senior dogs as well. If you would like to donate to this campaign, you can either drop by the main shelter or be on the look out for our Find Me Somebody to Love donation boxes throughout the city of Niagara Falls.

Keira is turning 10 on July 29th and had a early party so all of her friends could attend.

A new way to search for your lost pet

We have a brand-new section on our website called 'Stray Animals' which we are hoping will help reunite lost animals with their humans.

The 'Paw It Forward' Campaign is Here!

The 'Paw It Forward' campaign is currently underway at the Niagara Falls Humane Society!

Pictured here are the very first lucky recipients of this endeavor, who adopted Elf, a long-time resident at the shelter.

Elf's adoption fee was sponsored by the staff and volunteers at the Niagara Falls Humane Society, and so by 'paying it forward', the couple have offset the adoption fee of a mystery cat of their choosing. We are hoping this sets off a chain reaction of generosity!

If you would like to be a part of the 'Paw It Forward' campaign, please contact the shelter at (905) 356-4404 for more information.

<b>Kitty Curtailments!!!</b>

Kitty Curtailments!!!
Attention all crafty, animal-lovin' people!!!

The mission of Kitty Curtailments is to diminish the level of stress cats can and will experience in confined housing at the shelter.

Managing stress can mean the difference between a healthy cat and a sick cat. A simple cage curtain will help promote health among cats by giving them the privacy they need, and a sense of security as they await their forever homes.

We are looking to have people donate material towards this project. Bed sheets will also work as well. Round elastic cord, thread and 3/4 to 1" buttons will also be needed as well. All material can be dropped off at the Adoption Centre or the Shelter.

For more information please call (905) 356-4404

Coyotes in the community

Coyotes in the community

Coyotes, like other wild animals, sometimes come into conflict with humans.

Since migrating to Ontario from the west over 100 years ago, coyotes have adapted well to urban environments and can now be found in both rural and urban settings. Changes in land use, agricultural practices, weather and natural food shortages may contribute to increased coyote sightings in your community.
