Does your organization:

  • Drive positive, progressive change to end animal cruelty?
  • Improve animal protection?
  • Promote the humane treatment of all animals?

If you answered YES to these questions, the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies wants to join with you to build a Humane Canada.

As the convener and representative of the largest animal welfare community in Canada, the CFHS advances the welfare of animals, with a strong national voice promoting the interests and concerns of animal welfare to government, policy makers, industry and the public.

Membership: Does your group share our values?

We drive positive, progressive change to end animal cruelty and improve animal protection.

We build integrated, strategic professional teams that utilize systems thinking to create an effective organization and lasting change.

We are a federation of organizations that recognize we have more influence as a collective than as individuals to impact key national animal welfare issues. We work collaboratively and cooperatively with members and stakeholders based on the premise that we have greater impact creating positive change by being a part of the process.

We are an evidenced-based organization that supports and promotes innovative and anticipatory thinking to address animal welfare issues and secure lasting change.

We believe that each animal possesses intrinsic value, remarkable complexity and inherent dignity, and as such is deserving of respect and moral concern. We use the Five Freedoms to guide animal welfare decisions.

If your organization shares our values, join us!
