How to Help

What You Can Do To Help Your Local No-Kill Shelter

LAWS is one of just a few No-Kill shelters in Ontario. The shelter relies on the support and generosity of the community to maintain its operations.

Ways to help:

Here are just a few ways you can help your local shelter:

  • Participate in or start a fundraiser: Fundraising is very important as the shelter receives minimal government funding and we rely on private donations and fundraising events.
  • Become a volunteer: From walking dogs, to socializing cats, to general maintenance, we need your help. Consider joining the Board of Directors or participating on one of the various sub-committees.
    Learn all the different ways you can volunteer.
  • Become a foster parent: Help us nurture, care for, and evaluate pets so that we can find them the perfect forever families.
    Find out if you are ready for this rewarding experience.
  • Donate supplies: We need canned pet food, toys, kitty litter, cleaning supplies, office supplies, and so much more!
    See the list of things we need right now.
  • Donate funds: Donations to LAWS can be made in person at the shelter, or by mail. A donation form can be found on our website. We also accept donations through Canada Helps by Visa, Master Card, Amex, Interac and PayPal.
  • Spread the word: Join us on Facebook and Twitter…   and then promote the adoption of rescue animals by telling your friends.
