At the Quinte Humane Society we take in animals from the Quinte region, for a variety of different reasons. Peanut was surrendered to us in January 2016, at 3-months-old when she came down with parvo virus after having not been vaccinated. QHS stepped in and got her to a local vet. Peanut spent about a week in the care of the veterinarian where she was monitored closely and given IV fluids. Parvo virus can be deadly. Luckily for Peanut, she was able to get the necessary treatment in time to save her life.

Peanut was lucky and she recovered quickly from her illness. After a week, she was well enough to go up for adoption. Because of her age, she was unable to be spayed, so she went into our Foster to Adopt program. We had lots of interest in her, and after going through applications, the perfect home was chosen. They were so excited to take their new puppy home. She spent a month in foster care, and finally the day had come for her to be spayed. She was a happy, healthy puppy who was now fully vaccinated through our foster program. After her spay, the adoption was finalized and it was official, Peanut was in her furever home.


February 2019

This past month QHS came to the aid of 104 animals that were stray, in need of protection or surrendered.

           Cats = 63             Dogs = 39          Other = 2 (A guinea pig & a piglet)

QHS was able to adopt out 72 cats to new loving homes, and transfer out 2 to Cat Rescues and other Humane Societies all over Ontario. This month we were able to return 3 cats to their owners. 16 dogs were returned to their families, 5 dogs were transferred out to rescues and other Humane Societies all over Ontario, and 14 found new loving homes. Our guinea pig was adopted as well as one of our rabbits. The remaining animals will stay in our care until they find their furever home.
