Welcome to the Niagara Falls
Humane Society

The Niagara Falls Humane Society helps find loving homes for unwanted and mistreated animals, as well as trying its best to reunite lost pets with their rightful owners.

The NFHS provides a safe haven for pets in limbo, before they are placed in a new home. The Society tries to alleviate the suffering of all animals and to eliminate euthanasia as a method of population control for pets. At the NFHS, no healthy adoptable animal will ever be euthanised.

Exciting new fundraiser!
"like" Niagara's Humane Wildlife Removal" and help the animals

Kevin at Niagara's Humane Wildlife Removal has brought us a fundraiser that starts on April 1. All you have to do is look for Niagara's Humane Wildlife Removal" page on Facebook, and "like" it! If they get 1000 likes, Kevin will donate $1000 to the shelter!

He says,“We at Niagara's Humane Wildlife Removal are setting out to raise funds for the Niagara Falls Humane Society, which is a very important organization that is often overlooked when it comes to donations. I've been working with animals from a young age because my parents taught me to respect animals and how to deal with them, laying a foundation to what would lead to me provide the Niagara Region with humane wildlife removal . We go above and beyond to make sure we provide the most humane treatment of all animals that we deal with, just as the Niagara Falls Humane Society does. We are challenging the Niagara Region. If we get 1000 LIKES on our Facebook page during the month of April we will donate $1,000.00 to Niagara Falls Humane Society. Anyone that works with animals for a living or donates their time to help animals knows it's not a job it's a lifestyle.” So like us on Facebook-Niagara's Humane Wildlife Removal-and help the shelter animals.

Can you help?

The shelter is in need of several steam cleaners. Steam cleaning is the best way to clean cages safely and thoroughly thereby preventing disease.

If you can help, please bring your donation to the shelter or adoption centre as soon as possible.

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.
