Our Story

The Humane Society of Durham Region has been a community resource since 1967 dedicated to protecting and providing compassionate care for neglected, abused and abandoned animals in Durham Region while they await their forever homes.

Our Challenge

The HSDR is in need of an on-site animal hospital to serve the needs of the vulnerable animals in the Durham Region—a region which has greatly expanded over the years with our ever-growing population.

Our vision is to build an animal hospital addition to our existing shelter.

We will need help and a great deal of support from our community to move forward to make his a reality.

Each donation, however great or small, gives a homeless animal a new chance at life.
