Finally the Iqaluit Humane Society has come back to Facebook!
Show some love for Iqaluit’s 4 year old, completely volunteer, non-profit organization by Liking us on Facebook. The IHS only exists because of the tireless dedication of its staff and the continuous generous support of the community. There is no government funding for this much needed operation so the greatest ways you can help is by spreading the word and/or volunteering.
There’s a popular misconception with the term volunteer. When people hear it they immediately think of cleaning kennels, feeding and walking dogs and general grunt work. While this is true in some instances volunteering is so much more expansive than just that. Volunteering is offering something – anything – to the organization out of the kindness of your heart. It can be as simple as giving a fellow volunteer a lift to the shelter or as personal as sponsoring just one of the many adorable pups currently in-house.
Every volunteer dedicates time according to what they can offer. We all have 9 – 5 jobs just like the rest of you so we know how precious time can be. An hour of time, a care ride, a small donation, an offer of a free service – these are but small acts that can have a monumental effect. Imagine 100 people chipping in an hour’s worth of their time. That’s an incredible amount of time to do so much. For more information send us a message or write on our wall on Facebook.
Animal cruelty is a very real problem up here. People tend to turn a blind eye to the indecencies shown to these loving creatures. Many are shot on sight in order to control the population while others simply die from neglect and abuse. There are no laws protecting them – only the IHS – so please show your support.
“Anything is something”
