The London Humane Society works to assist animals by providing them with a home until they can be adopted into a new family. We offer shelter and care, including medical care, to hundreds of animals each year, and respond to more than 1,000 complaints of animal cruelty. We rescue animals from bad situations, laying criminal charges when warranted. We also provide the community with information and education, believing that education, particularly of our young people, is one of the most effective ways to teach a sense of responsibility toward companion animals as well as a respect and compassion for all living beings. None of these important animal care programs would be possible, however, without the help of concerned and caring people like you.
We invite you to explore our website for information on our Humane Society services, volunteer opportunities and upcoming events.

Our Animal Return Policy

Please note you are required to sign a copy of the policy as part of the adoption process.
