Caring For Animals in Need Since 1970

In the early 1970s, the Quinte Humane Society acquired Eastern Breeders’ property at 527 Avonlough Road to utilize as a public animal shelter. Prior to this, many animals were placed with Quinte Humane Society volunteers who provided foster homes and animal care. QHS was officially incorporated in 1993.

HSHPE continues to operate as an affiliate of the OSPCA reponsible for the Counties of Hastings and Prince Edward and is governed by a Board of Directors and operated by a team of professionally-trained staff.
