The Humane Society of Durham Region would like to thank PetSmart Charities of Canada 
for their generous contribution to help with medical costs and food for the 22 cats and kittens 
brought to us from a single dwelling.  Some kittens are still in our foster programme 
and others have already gone to their furever  homes. Thank you PetSmart Charities of Canada 
and other kind individuals who have provided support for these wonderful pets.


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!!
