Humane Society Hastings Prince Edward

A community based shelter providing a safe and caring place for as many as 2,200 sick, abused, neglected and homeless animals each year.


The Humane Society (HSHPE) cares for stray, surrendered, neglected and abused animals in Hastings and Prince Edward Counties. The Society returns lost animals to families, coordinates adoption of animals to forever homes, provides medical care and other necessities to animals in distress, provides spay/neuter services to control over-population and educates the public about animal welfare.

Approximately 30% of HSHPE’s annual funds come from earned revenue (incl. adoptions) and 70% from the generosity of the community. HSHPE is a provincially incorporated non-profit and federally registered charity serving all of Hastings and Prince Edward Counties.

In recent years the Quinte Humane Society has been gaining funding for a new building, which began construction in July 2021 and contains 3 planned phases. This first phase is the construction of the new $5 million shelter, phase 2 includes construction of a community and education centre, and phase 3 involves bringing a full service veterinary staff to this new site.

In July 2019, City of Belleville council approved a special grant of $400,000 as well as in-kind services and permits for the construction of the Humane Society’s 16,200 sq. ft. Animal Care and Education Centre on Wallbridge Loyalist Road. The centre is on track to welcome animals and caregivers in late summer 2022.

The “It Takes Heart Capital Campaign” continues to raise money for this new, and much needed building. Donations can be made at ittakesheart.ca.
