Animal Shelter Statistics Report

In order to improve the welfare of companion animals, the animal welfare community and the public at large need to know the number of animals in shelters and what the outcome is for these animals after they are admitted.

The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS) gathers data on the number of animals entering humane society and SPCA shelters and the numbers adopted, returned to their owners or euthanized. This information provides a national picture of the important role shelters play in their communities.

The 2015 Animal Shelter Statistics Report presents the results of the most recent survey of humane societies and SPCAs and represents the best available information about companion animals in Canadian shelters. Reports from previous years are also available below, along with a year-by-year comparison document that shows sheltering trends over time.
