COVID-19 (Corona Virus) UPDATE
The Humane Society of Durham Region has implemented updated procedures for Phase 3 of reopening due to the ongoing COVID 19 situation.
Since March, the HSDR is proud to have been able to continue assisting animals in need, while still offering services to the public following an appointment based and curbside model.
We encourage anyone interested in adopting an animal to review all animals currently available for adoption on our adoption pages: For dogs click here, for cats click here, for small mammals click here.
In person adoption interviews can be completed during your visitation appointment, if timing permits. Our dedicated shelter staff will review the visitation appointment guidelines during your appointment booking.

Donations of items/supplies can be dropped off at the shelter without making an appointment anytime between the hours of 11am – 6pm, 7 days a week. Kindly leave the donation of items outside the front doors of the shelter and our staff will bring them inside.
If you would like to make a monetary donation in person you can do so without an appointment during the hours of 11am – 6pm, 7 days a week. Kindly ring the doorbell at the front doors of the shelter and our shelter staff will assist you and bring you inside to make your donation by cash, cheque, credit or debit.
