We would like to work with your organization to find the right sponsorship opportunity to kick-off our 3rd Gala’s fundraising activities. There are many levels of corporate sponsorship available, including in-kind donations. We will work together to highlight your company to our target audience through our various media channels. It is our intention to assist in enhancing your company’s reputation through your support of the HSDR and this event.

Because our recent Wine & Whiskers Gala was such a success, the Gala Committee
is excited to start planning for the 2018 event.  
Please put Friday October 26, 2018 on your calendar.  
The 2018 Gala will be held at the elegant Ajax Convention Centre, 550 Beck Crescent, Ajax, Ontario from 6:30 to midnight.
It will be another phenomenal fundraising night for HSDR and you won’t want to miss it.


Each year hundreds of animals come to the HSDR shelter for a second chance. The goal of our Gala was to raise money for a 'Gift of 100 Lives’.
The Gala, held on Friday, October 27, was spectacular and through generous donations we raised an amazing $112,000!
We are very grateful and wish to thank the staff, volunteers, board members, those who donated auction and raffle items, those who offered their time and especially those who attended the Gala and those who donated to the ‘Gift of 100 Lives’.
If you were unable to attend this year’s Gala, you can still donate to a ‘Gift of 100 Lives’ by contacting the shelter at 905-665-7430 or through our website- donate www.hsdr.org.

We hope to see you all again next year!


Did you know that HSDR does between 10-12 loads of laundry every day?!
That's a lot of laundry! We are kindly asking for donations of liquid laundry detergent,
fabric softener and dryer sheets to help keep our furry friends in fresh clean bedding!
Donations can be dropped off in person at the shelter - 1505 Wentworth Street in Whitby,
anytime during our business hours. Thank you so much for your support!


2017 Kitty Kare Program

Donate $150 to save a life of a kitten!


Kitten Season has started!

It costs HSDR more than $150 in out-of-pocket expenses to ensure a kitten is ready to be adopted. This covers vaccinations, micro-chipping and spay/neutering. And that's for healthy kittens who have been nursed and weaned by mama - similar to the cuties found in these real photos and stock photos.

However, most kittens who come to us are not so lucky - they are found abandoned at just days or weeks old and they have already picked up eye infections and upper respiratory infections, meaning they need medical attention right away. Also, in addition to the $150 as noted above, each kitten consumes about $60 worth of milk substitute over their first six weeks. And then there is the additional expense of the wet and dry food introduced as they grow.

As you can see, these furbabies need you to consider sponsoring their care and save their lives! Your tax-receiptable "Kitty Kare" gift of $150 will go a long way in providing the necessities they so desperately need to live!

What's more, you don't have to adopt your kitten - just show it your love by giving it a name. This is a great program for cat lovers who aren't able to adopt a kitten or cat due to allergies, travel, etc.

Sponsors will receive pics and weekly updates about their kitten, until they are adopted. To save your kitten, please call our office at 905-665-7430 and leave a message at ext. 225. Sponsorships will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, so don't delay!! On behalf of the kitties who are coming, we thank you!!
