10 Ways to Help the Humane Society

Donate on line

The TDHS can now accept your donations on line, through a partnership with, a non-profit organization set up especially to help charities. When you click on the Donate Now logo, right, you’ll be brought to a secure site where you can enter a donation and your method of payment. You’ll receive a tax receipt for your records via e-mail. This is a reputable site and you can be sure that your donation will reach us.

Make a financial or in-kind donation locally

The Timmins Humane Society is a registered charitable organization that can issue tax receipts for cash donations. Its Registered Charity Number is 87246 6198 RR0001. There are three ways to donate money: coin boxes, cheques and cash donations, or gifts.

Coin Boxes

The Society collects donations through the Humane Society coin boxes located at the check-out areas of many Timmins and area merchants, including Your Independent Grocer and Pet Valu.

Cheque or Cash Donations

If you wish to write a cheque, please write it to the order of:

The Timmins & District Humane Society
PO Box 640
Timmins, ON P4N 7G2

The TDHS also accepts cash donations at Humane Society events, such as the Wag-a-tailathon and the Santa Sessions.


If you have Club Z Points or Canadian Tire Money that you would like to donate, we can use it! These gifts can be used to buy pet food, blankets, toys, and other supplies that we need to care for abandoned animals.

If you happen to be in Swish or either of the Pet Valu Stores, you can also buy food, collars and leashes, toys and cleaning supplies and drop them into the Humane Society bins at each store.

You might also consider holding a garage sale, dance, or other event, and donating the proceeds to the Humane Society. All funds raised go towards the purchase of food, supplies and veterinary services for the animals under the Society’s care.

Become a Member

Becoming a member of the Timmins & District Humane Society is one way you can help support the good works of the Society. A one-year membership costs $10 (individual) or $15 (family) and is tax-deductible. You may even want to consider giving memberships as gifts to friends and relatives who like animals….it’s a thoughtful, unique gift that gives everyone a warm feeling of accomplishment.

To become a member, simply call us or stop by the shleter at 620 Mahoney Drive. The Society is governed by a Board of community-minded volunteers, and it is always open to new members.

Donate your time

The Timmins Humane Society organizes a number of events throughout the year to raise money for its continued operations. You can help by donating your time, energy and ideas in planning, organizing and managing these events. Are you an expert baker? Perhaps you could donate a batch of your favourite cookies to the next bake sale. If you can donate an hour or a day, for one time only or on a regular basis, please give us a call.

Adopt an animal

Can you open your home and your heart to a dog or cat in need of a home? Many animals need secure, loving homes. The Society usually has dogs and cats of a variety of breeds,sizes and ages. Consider adopting an animal that really needs a home. You’ll be rewarded with the unconditional love that only a pet can provide. Click here for more information.
