Thank YOU for your
in 2014!!

Thank you to everyone who has supported HSKL this year.  We could not help as many animals as we do without your continued support.  Your participation in events, volunteering, donating, adopting, hosting third party events and sharing our facebook and Twitter feeds, is invaluable to us.

To our media friends, 91.9 BOB FM, CHEX Television, CableCable, Kawartha This Week and most recently, CKLR the BEAV, we cannot thank you enough for helping us promote our animals and our fundraising events.  Thank you so much for bring a friend of the shelter.

All of our 2014 adopters, thank you for choosing to adopt and not shop.  Your new family members thank you and so do we.

Thank you to the Veterinary hospitals who do their best to help keep our costs down and for making time for our animals that are in need.  You are amazing people.


Volunteers... maybe it is not said enough, but your hard work inside and outside of the shelter does not go unnoticed.  The shelter is changing and growing and we couldn’t continue to operate without you.  We hope you will continue to help HSKL evolve in 2015.

Thank you and best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season!


Henny Venus, Executive Director & Mike Cavanagh, HSKL Board President


Bummer is ready for a home of her own!

Poor Bummer has been with us since April 15, 2014.  She almost 6 years old and is more than ready for her forever family to adopt her.  She is microchipped, had her shots and is spayed.

Bummer can be very playful and affectionate, but only on her terms.  She is very independent and would be best suited to an adult home with an owner who is an experienced and knowledgeable about cat behaviour.

Bummer needs to be the center of attention.  We do not recommend that she join a family with other pets.  Bummer needs to be an ‘only pet.’ In a quiet environment, we believe Bummer will do well.  Her new family will have to have time and patients in getting to know what she does and does not like. Bummer needs a chance at a new life with the right family.  A cozy pillow of her own and a chance to look out the window whenever she wants, would be heaven for sweet Bummer.

If you feel Bummer is the kind of cat that would thrive in your home, please contact us at 705-878-4618.  Let’s get Bummer home for life!
