McKenzie is a true community rescued cat by the Mississauga Humane Society, who would not be with us without a team of people who support our mission!
The Mississauga Humane Society is an all-volunteer based, but we have been keeping to the recommended guidelines put out by the government and health ministry.
1. We have greatly reduced our intake to strictly kitten intake; and have reworked out adoption process to help to maintain physical distancing.
2. Any work on behalf of Mississauga Humane Society that a volunteer does that involves contact with people outside their immediate home environment must have board approval.
3. All volunteers engaging in any work for the Mississauga Humane Society must wear a mask; wash or sanitize their hands and any equipment; and maintain social distancing guidelines as outlined by the health ministry when having any contact with the community.
4. Any volunteer who feels ill must self-isolate and contact their primary doctor or local health officials. They must also tell anyone with whom they have contact.
Fosters who need assistance must contact MHS by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 905-271-0883. Fosters must have a current Foster Waiver Form on record with MHS to receive assistance.
We are pleased to announce some recent changes to the Mississauga Humane Society. We have spent our time in lock down building up our organization, and we are happy to share some of our recent achievements!
If you are not familiar with us, we have been in existence for 20+ years and are a 100% volunteer organization working in Mississauga’s neighbourhoods to rescue, care and find forever homes for stray, feral and abandoned animals.
We are now open for MEMBERSHIP!
As with other local Ontario humane societies, our members have the opportunity to take a more active role while supporting a vital community service.
Membership has been a year in the making, and we cannot wait to see how much stronger we will be with our members joining the cause!
HUMANE CANADA ASSOCIATE STATUS!
As an associate member, we are connected into a strong and cohesive national movement. These are very positive and exciting changes for Mississauga Humane Society.
If you would like to learn more about our organization, become a member, make a donation or volunteer. We, and the animals we support, would be happy to hear from you.
What is a Shadow Cat?
A shadow cat is a term we use to refer to any cat that is nervous, scared, shy, or otherwise leery of humans. They are most commonly trapped off the street and have had a harsh beginning in life.
Shadow cats come in all shapes and colours; they all have a tough story to tell, and unfortunately, for many, we can only speculate about the things they have experienced.
May 4, 2020 - Everyone is doing well!
We are so excited to share that all of our Brewary kitties are doing so well, and some are already looking at their forever homes!
