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.

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.

If you have recently lost your critter, please be sure to check it out often as it is updated daily.

For more information, please call the shelter at (905) 356-4404

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.
