About Us

Pet Food Bank

Pets are a part of the family, which is why we have established a Pet Food Bank program here at HSKL. This program is in place to help prevent the abandonment or surrender of animals when their families cannot afford to feed them.

Giving up a family pet because you can’t provide adequate food is a very difficult experience for both the owner and the animal.  We are here to help assist in keeping pets with their families.

This service is intended to be for short-term emergencies rather than ongoing.  Our Pet Food Bank hours coincide with shelter business hours.

We are able to provide food for dogs and cats.  If you have other animals in your care that you need help feeding, please speak with our Animal Care team.

Yes, we take donations of dry and wet food, including treats. If you have an open bag of food that your pet has decided they no longer like or medicated food that they no longer need, we’ll take those bags! Please, no expired product, as we will not be able to use it.  We also accept opened bags of kitty litter.

Questions?  Visit us in-person, email us at shelter.hskl@cogeco.net or call 705-878-4618.

NOTICE:  We occasionally host a Mobile Pet Food Bank in downtown Lindsay.  For more information on this service, please contact us at 705-878-4618.

Nail Trims - On-hold due to COVID-19

If you do not like trimming your pet’s nails, we can do it for you!

Each pet is only $10.  To keep costs down, we prefer cash, but we do accept debit and credit.  Have an HSKL gift certificate?  Redeem it for a free nail trim!

All trims are by appointment only.  To make an appointment, call the shelter at 705-878-4618 or email us at shelter.hskl@cogeco.net 

Please note: We do not take walk-ins.  Cats must be in carriers and dogs must be leashed. We have the right to refuse any pet that shows obvious signs of being overly aggressive or bad-tempered.  

Bath Tub Rental - On-hold due to COVID-19

Does your pooch need a bath?  We know how difficult it can be to wash your dog in a regular bathtub, that’s why we are offering our tub to you!

For $15, you get the use of our tub and the choice to use the bath products and towels we have here at the shelter, or you can bring your own.

Appointments must be made in advance and can be done so by calling us at 705-878-4618 or by emailing shelter.hskl@cogeco.net   

Please note: The last appointment on weekdays is at 3:30pm and weekends is 2:30pm.  We do not take walk-ins.  Upon entering and exiting the building, all dogs must be leashed or in a carrier.  Your pet must be supervised by you at all times.
