Welcome to Simcoe and District Humane Society.

Vision Statement
“For all animals to be treated with compassion without the threat of ever being unwanted or abandoned and that they might live in a community where overpopulation of companion animals is diminished by humane intervention not euthanasia”.

Mission Statement
To inspire, provide and promote a healthy and protective environment for all animals of Norfolk County.

The Society has been a part Norfolk County since 1953, looking after animals both large and small. 

Now located in the industrial section of Simcoe at 24 Grigg Drive, SDHS has a 3.5 acre property purchased from the County in 2004. 

In 2007, volunteers moved in to the temporary office and storage facility which was set up to assist foster homes and the public, however, the need in the community grew quickly and the space was soon transformed to house the overflow of small animals ... mainly those ready for adoption.

Volunteers work round the clock to provide a comfortable and healthy environment for all animals in care, whether their stay is at the shelter or in foster care. The goal is to prepare every animal for adoption into a loving and forever home.

There are no paid positions in Simcoe and District Humane Society and the Society relies on volunteers to raise funds, answer phones, work with the animals, and deal with the public.  If you are interested in helping the animals please visit our volunteer page or the information on fostering if you have time or space.

The Society relies strictly on fundraising efforts and donations from the community, not contracted or paid by any level of government or organization to do the work in the County.

Your donation is greatly appreciated and will help SDHS continue helping the animals.

All volunteers look forward to helping each animal find its forever family and will gladly introduce you to animals ready for adoption.

If you would like more information on adoption, volunteering or donating to the Society please contact us by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  During our very busy days, email is the best way to contact every volunteer.

You may also visit our contact us page for more information.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to meeting you at our next event or at the shelter!

Special Pets in Care

It has been a busy and expensive first quarter for the Society. Since January 1 2016, over 175 cats and 15 dogs, Many with special needs, have found their way into the doors of the Shelter. All have been tested for contagious or serious disease, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated, spayed/neutered, microchipped and readied for adoption. Veterinarians have given the okay for a number of our special pets to be adopted including: Blindy, Edie, Sledge, Shag, Chevelle, and Bella (our Bare Eyed Cockatoo).
You can meet these and other adoptable pets on our website and some of these (if not already adopted by then) will be at the Adopt Norfolk Event!
