How You Can Help

The Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society depends on support from our community. From providing care for animals in need to donating toward the cost of our programs, your support is crucial.


Volunteers play a significant role in the health and well-being of our animals.  You can be a part of this by donating your time in a number of areas of need.  Find our available positions here.

Animal Fostering Program

This program is perfect for those who may not be able to commit to an animal for its entire life.  Find out how you can help with our foster program here.

Support the Humane Society

Whether through financial gift or volunteering your time, your support is what allows us to create safe spaces for animals within our community.

Third Party Fundraising

We welcome contributors of their events to support our programming at the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society. The KWHS is more than just an adoption centre for neglected, abandoned or abused  pets.  KWHS offers programs, camps, and clubs to children, youth, and adults to encourage responsible pet ownership.
