Donate to HSKL

Your generosity helps us to care for the surrendered, injured and unwanted animals that come through our doors. HSKL is the ONLY registered not-for-profit animal-related charity in the City of Kawartha Lakes. For monetary donations, we can provide charity receipts for $25+, upon request.

Once you click "Donate Funds", you'll be taken to our secure online donation portal through Canada Helps, where you may choose to direct your donation to one of the funds listed below or request that it go towards the fund that is in the most need.


Animal Care Fund

The shelter receives no on-going government funding. Adoption fees don't fully cover the expense of spay/neuters, food, shots and veterinary care. Ongoing support for this fund is always needed.

The Honey Fund

The Honey Fund is designated to assist with extraordinary medical bills for sick/ injured animals. This fund covers medications and surgeries that would otherwise be unaffordable for us to provide. This fund was established in memory of Honey, a one-eyed stray dog.

The Marj Owen Spay and Neuter Fund

This fund is named after volunteer, Marj Owen. Marj established the spay/neuter fund which contributes to the cost of spaying or neutering animals prior to adoption. We are pleased to say that every adult cat/dog is spayed/neutered before they go to their forever homes. All kittens are puppies come with a spay/neuter rebate. for us to provide. 

In-Kind Donations

In-Kind donations of needed supplies are always welcomed. In-Kind donations must have a cash receipt to accompany the items. We cover 100% of the cost, minus tax. Please contact our bookkeeper at for information on receiving an In-Kind receipt.
