The Niagara SPCA and Humane Society is a non-profit charity that operates animal centers in Niagara Falls, Welland and Port Colborne providing shelter for homeless animals and adopting them to caring families. We continue to be innovative in our programming that enhances and supports the human-animal bond for the many animals with whom we share our community and our lives, and to fostering the important bonds with animals that enrich us as individuals, families and communities.

Our mission is to deliver innovative programs and compassionate services that enhance the lives of pets in need and the people that care for them. Our Core Values are teamwork, responsive solutions and compassionate service.
Together, we enhance lives, inspire compassion and bring joy to pets and people.

Some of our programs are Low-cost spay-neuter, mobile animal hospital, animal transfers all delivered by a team of staff with many years of experience in animal care and welfare. Our mission could not be accomplished without a team of over 200 volunteers, who provide thousands of hours of service each year and generously share their skills and ideas with the humane society.
Our organization is guided by a governance Board of Directors, made up of volunteers with a wide range of skills and business experience. The Board also convenes several committees, which work to address specific issues. Day-to-day operations of the shelter are managed by the Executive Director and senior staff.

We are a registered charitable, non-profit organization that does not receive government funding. As such, we depend on your donations and private funding to support our important work.
