Welcome!

Welcome to the Meadow Lake & District Humane Society’s home in the blogosphere!

The Meadow Lake & District Humane Society started in the summer of 2003. We have come a long way from our humble beginnings and in the 7 years we’ve been operating we have found homes for 649 dogs and 462 cats (and counting!).

We operate out of a fantastic facility located in the Industrial Park that currently houses 11 dogs and 30 cats. The majority of our cats are kept in communal style cages with 4-8 cats in each area. There are trees to climb, perches to stretch out on and hammocks to lounge in. Our kitties have got it pretty good! We have recently completed renovations to the south side of our building to offer a completely enclosed outdoor area for the cats to spend time in the sunshine. Construction on the north side will be completed in the near future. For cats that aren’t kept in the communal cages, they call a 2 storey condo home. These also include perches to sit on and hammocks to lounge in.

Our dogs live in kennels that have access to outdoors through a dog door. They also have access to 4 large dog runs, as well as the large fenced in perimeter to run off their energy! Our great volunteers take time out of their busy schedules to groom, play and walk the dogs.

We strive to make sure that the animals in our shelter receive the best care in a safe and comfortable environment!

MLDHS is a 100% volunteer run organization. Without the support of our fantastic volunteers the shelter would not run as smoothly as it does! From shelter chores, maintaining the website, answering emails, taking photographs of animals, answering phone calls, fundraising, fostering, transporting animals, walking dogs, grooming, and spending time with the animals, our volunteers have their work cut out for them, but they do an amazing job! We have a small group of core volunteers but what we lack in numbers we make up for in heart! A HUGE thank you goes out to our dedicated volunteers!

Thank you for visiting our Blog! We will use this space to update the public on upcoming events and information regarding our shelter. Please visit our website at www.mldhs.petfinder.com to view our adoptable pets!
