The Brandon Humane Society (BHS) has been in operation since 1946 when it was founded by Eleanor Kidd. She originally housed the shelter in her garage on 13th Street, then in an abandoned stable near Empress Bay, and later in an old barn near the riverbank where Eleanor Kidd Gardens are now located.
Fifty years later, BHS residents – both cats and dogs – moved to a new, comfortable building with heat and air conditioning, two large exercise yards, an enclosed cat patio, and enough kennels for 20 cats and 13 dogs. And when kennels are full, the BHS dedicated volunteers foster animals in their own homes!
The amazing Tracy Munn, and her small army of volunteers, run the shelter, performing the grooming, socializing and exercising of the animals, as well as clean up duties. They also organize and take part in shelter fundraising activities and special events.

Or if you’re looking for a new little snuggle bug, check out Winston, who has been at the shelter since March 28 – Winston came from Leaf Rapids along with his sister Jordan, who has already been adopted (yay!). Hopefully Winston won’t have to wait too much longer for his forever home.
There are so many ways to help – join the BHS today!
From everyone at Animal Alliance / Saving Dinah, a BIG thank you to Tracy, the Board, the volunteers and all who make the BHS services possible.
