Cats on Queen

Cats on Queen
Store Closure

While we had given notice to terminate the lease for Cats on Queen, we were committed to remaining open until February 28, 2018, only two months before the end of the term of the lease. The decision to close immediately was made after the break in last week.

The Niagara Falls Humane Society is extremely grateful to the Niagara Falls Board of Management and Members of the Downtown BIA for their generous gift in helping us open Cats on Queen so quickly after our Niagara Square Adoption Centre had to close. They helped us to continue to do what we do best: find forever homes for the cats entrusted into our care.

We would also like to thank our team of dedicated volunteers, and all our animal-loving supporters. We hope everyone will come and visit For the Love of Cats on Montrose Rd. There are currently 30 cats waiting for their forever homes.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

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.
