Canine Influenza

Canine Influenza
Help us protect the dogs

NFHS is extremely proud to be taking a proactive approach to protecting the dogs in our care and those in the community.

Canine influenza is an immediate and relevant concern in Ontario. We are aware of many outbreaks and are seriously concerned about all dogs in our environment and in Ontario. That is why we have decided to vaccinate all dogs in our care to protect them from this invasive disease.

Please support us in making this happen. Be proactive! Vaccinate your own dogs to protect them, and help us get the word out about how important it is to vaccinate.

Each dog will need two shots, two weeks apart. The dog will be fully protected within the month, for an entire year.

If you'd like to help by donating toward the cost of the vaccines, please contact the shelter.

Join us in protecting the dogs in our community.

Coyotes in the community

Coyotes in the community

Coyotes, like other wild animals, sometimes come into conflict with humans.

Since migrating to Ontario from the west over 100 years ago, coyotes have adapted well to urban environments and can now be found in both rural and urban settings. Changes in land use, agricultural practices, weather and natural food shortages may contribute to increased coyote sightings in your community.
