Welcome to the Niagara Falls

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.

Every year thousands of lost, abandoned, neglected and abused animals are cared at for by NFHS with respect and compassion. Our mission is to provide leadership in our community through advocacy, education and enforcement, so that all animals are appreciated and understood.

Adoption Centre open for business

We're open for business, as usual.Come and visit while you can!

Please remember that the Adoption Centre has had over 7 years of success thanks to Niagara Square/Riocan. The huge rent-free space was such an amazing gift. We're sad, but moving forward, looking for a new site, and celebrating 7 amazing and beautiful years at our little mall.

If you have any ideas about a new location, please email

It is with great sadness we announce the impending closure on May 1st, 2017 of the Niagara Falls Humane Society Cat Adoption Centre in the Niagara Square.

During the 7+ years our doors have been open, our amazing team of volunteers have helped find forever homes for over 2000 cats and other small animals.

This space, generously donated to us by the Niagara Square, is a wonderful sanctuary for animals awaiting the love and compassion they so desperately need and deserve from their future families.

We are now pleading for help from the public: if anyone can help us find a space so that we may continue with our amazing, open- concept, family- friendly adoption centre in another location so that we may continue saving these sweet souls please contact us at: or
Thank you for your continuing support.

Time to book your table!

Our eighth annual Niagara Falls Humane Society Trivia Night is coming up May 12. This is NFHS´s biggest fundraising event. We have plans to expand our services and facility so we can help more animals in more ways.

This event can offer great exposure for any business. Major donors will receive recognition on the NFHS website which averages 150,000 hits a month. The event and major sponsors will also be advertised on Facebook, and in the shelter´s regular columns in the Review, Niagara This Week and NiagaraBuzz.

Plan to attend this fun-filled night of trivia. Register a team of eight for $200. There will be a silent auction, pizza, snacks, cash bar, and a prize for the first place winners.

Remember, no donation is too small. If you can help with a prize or auction item, would like to sponsor a round of trivia, or if you require further information or tickets, please call Kathleen at 905-328-4407 or email me at

Can we count on you this year? Help us to continue to provide the best care possible for the needy and deserving animals in our community.
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.
