Long Description:

  • Society Profile:
  • The Humane Society of Durham Region was incorporated by Jim Roughly and Graham McLeod in 1988 under the name Durham Animal Welfare; we then became an independent operating affiliate of the Ontario S.P.C.A. under the new name Humane Society of Durham Region. Our Investigators are appointed by the Solicitor General for the Province of Ontario, giving them the authority, by law, to investigate cruelty complaints regarding any abuse and/or neglect of an animal. We are the only organization in Durham Region that can seize and remove animals, by law, if required. Our Investigators respond to abuse complaints from Oshawa to the south, Pickering to the west, Newtonville to the east and Gamebridge and Thorah Island to the north.
  • We serve all of Durham Region.
    The Humane Society of Durham Region is made up of a Volunteer Board of Directors.
    The Board of Directors directs the local operations of the Society and work co-cooperatively with the shelter staff to provide humanitarian services to the local animal population.
