The Pictou County Branch was formed in 1979 and has provided a necessary service to the many animals and residents of the towns and municipality. The Branch depends on the generosity of the residents and businesses of Pictou County to help keep the shelter doors open.

The Branches services include but are not limited to care of animals, both abandoned and stray; re-home animals given up by their owners; and pound services for the county and Pictou; The Branch also does educational presentations at the schools and works with John Howard’s Restorative justice, Summer Street Industries and other community groups.

Pictou County Branch relies on volunteers and donations; further income is generated by our year round fundraising efforts which include: tickets sales, I.D.tags, memberships, bottle drives, bowl-a-thons, bake sales, Christmas wrap and BBQ’s. Our biggest fundraiser is our annual Christmas letter.

Through our involvement with the schools, we now have multiple schools that are providing fundraising efforts to help the animals of the Pictou County. Their ideas range from Dance-a-thons, wake-a –thons to birthday parties etc.

We have a very good relationship with the local businesses of Pictou County and through the years they have given a huge amount of support. The Branch also benefits from an excellent relationship with the local media in Pictou County as well.

We thank the community as a whole for all the years of support.
