COVID-19: Follow public health measures during the stay-at-home order

Donate to the Animal Services Shelter

At the Animal Services Shelter we welcome monetary or in-kind donations that help support our commitment to keep the animals in our care healthier, safer and comfortable.

Your donations provide animals with food and items that they will need during their stay at the shelter.

You’ll help save an animal from suffering and pain by supporting their surgeries or medicines if they’re sick or injured.

We appreciate your donation and thank you for your generosity!

Donate to SCARF

Your donations to the Animal Services Special Care for Animals and Resources Fund (SCARF) will help animals in our care recover until they are healthy enough to be adopted.

You cannot currently donate online or in person. To make a donation, please call the shelter at 905-896-5858 or make a donation by mail.

Your donations can:

  • Provide extra veterinary care and specialized surgeries
  • Purchase shelter items and medications for the animals
  • Support spay and neuter of adoption animals
