About Us

We provide education, advocacy, and assist animals in distress.

Humane Society London & Middlesex was established as a non-profit organization in 1899 and exists to improve the lives of animals in our community by providing temporary shelter and appropriate new families for surrendered, neglected & mistreated animals.

Throughout the years, we have worked tirelessly to assist animals by providing them with a home until they can be adopted into a new family.  Our ability to support animals in our community is entirely dependent on individual and corporate donations. We receive no direct government support at any level.

We are also an affiliate of the OSPCA, and therefore employ officers that enforce the OSPCA Act and sections of the Criminal Code that are relevant to animal cruelty.

Our mission is to lead London and Middlesex in building a humane and compassionate community for all animals.
