The Peterborough Humane Society

DocuPet’s mission is to help provide a safe and happy home for every pet. We're proud to partner with the Peterborough Humane Society to support the important work they do for animals in our community.

For more than 63 years, the Peterborough Humane Society has been dedicated to protecting and caring for the many vulnerable pets in Peterborough and the Kawarthas.

The Peterborough Humane Society provides care and shelter for approximately 1,700 homeless, stray, injured, orphaned, abandoned and abused animals each year. With the increase in the number of pets cared for over the years, the Peterborough Humane Society is hard at work on Our Pet Project, which will see three programs integrated under one roof:

  • The Peterborough Humane Society’s Shelter, Adoption and Education Centre
  • A High-Volume Low-Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic to provide affordable spay and neuter services to prevent pet overpopulation
  • Canada’s first Dog Rehabilitation Centre created in partnership with the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society

They are a registered charitable, non-profit animal welfare organization. The services they provide depend on donations and private funding.


See Them in Action

Animal enrichment is a large part of the shelter's philosophy. When animals are enriched, it makes them highly adoptable because they are less stressed.


How Does the Safe&HappyFund Help?

DocuPet's Safe&HappyFund donates 20% of net proceeds from designer tag sales in Peterborough right back to the shelter. Our mission is to provide a safe and happy home for every pet. Every dollar counts for shelters and we think it's important to provide them with the support they need in order to care for society's most vulnerable pets.

Through the Safe&HappyFund, 20% of the proceeds from designer tag sales are donated to the Peterborough Humane Society.
