Gananoque & District Humane Society

Gananoque & District Humane Society

Our all-volunteer Shelter rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes hundreds of dogs, cats and other domestic pets annually. We have never put down a healthy, adoptable pet just to make space for another.  We do not use professional fundraisers and raise all our own money from donations, adoption fees and fundraising events along with support from our local municipalities when available.

Lanark Animal Welfare Society

As an independent No-Kill shelter, LAWS does not euthanize for population control, age, breed or after a set amount of time has passed. Euthanasia is reserved only for those cases where an animal is ill or aggressive to the point that quality of life is impacted. All animals in the shelter’s care will be cared for until a suitable home, permanent or foster, is found. LAWS provides food, shelter, veterinary care and love from our dedicated staff and volunteers. We also try to work with other rescues to optimize the adoption of our animals.
