In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Humane Canada™ and Hill’s Pet Nutrition Canada announced a first of its kind partnership to support animal welfare organizations across the country through a disaster relief fund for Canadian Humane Societies.
Alliston & District Humane society is thrilled to announce that we are the recipients of a grant from Hill’s Disaster Relief Fund. Our grant will be used to assist with our ever-increasing veterinarian bills during the pandemic. ADHS has continued to operate during the COVID 19 outbreak, taking in many, many animals abandoned in the community or surrendered to us. We appreciate Hill’s commitment and support for animals in our country, particularly during these trying times.
We would also like to send a special thank you to Barbara Cartwright and her team at Humane Canada™ who provide incredible support for ADHS through their collaborative online conferences, and flow of information about best practices during a pandemic.
Alliston & District Humane society is thrilled to announce that they have received a generous grant from the United Way Simcoe Muskoka to assist with shelter safety during the COVID pandemic.
ADHS has over 150 volunteers; many are seniors, as well as young families with children, and we continue to take in and adopt out animals to the public by appointment during the pandemic. This grant will be used to raise the bar on the safety of the shelter, by weekly COVID cleaning, in addition to the cleaning our volunteers do daily to ensure the safety of everyone.
The grant will also be used to provide adequate PPE for volunteers, cleaning supplies including specialized veterinarian cleaning products necessary in the shelter, as well as plexiglass barriers to enhance safety. This grant from the United Way is funded by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund.
