Membership dues make up nearly 100% of our income. They pay for all of our events and organizational costs. Without a sufficient number of paying members, we simply can’t provide you with the benefits you’ve become used to.

Please take a minute and pay your dues — just click on the button at the top right of this page.

It’s only $20/year per household - less than 6 cents a day. You get an awful lot for that!

And welcome to our website
. This is the place to come for constantly updated news, event information, contacts, history, and fun stuff about our West River area.

10-17 ShySHY

Breed: Shih-Tzu
Sex: Female. Spayed
Age: 6 years

Hello! My name describes my personality. I am very shy. However, I have been making major improvements! I was rescued from a puppy mill where I had many litters and little to no social time with people or the outside world. I am ready to retire from that old life and experience a first class lifestyle!

I am learning not to be afraid of people and slowly trust that they won't hurt me. I want to be brave but it is so hard for me sometimes! My first instinct is to run away when I feel scared or nervous so it is important that I go to a quiet home where family members are 18 years or older. I will likely be compatible with another well matched dog in size and personality. I quite enjoy running around with other doggie pals!

Due to my lack of experience in a home environment, I will likely struggle with housetraining. Luckily, I have learned to sleep and rest in a crate! My new favourite treats are hot dogs. I love hot dogs and they are the best way to gain my trust and make friends with me!

Are you looking for the cutest little dog on the planet? Are you willing to devote time and patience to help me learn how to live in a home environment? If you said yes, I might be your girl! Call the front desk or adoptions department for more details on how to meet with me.

The Oakville & Milton Humane Society is located at 445 Cornwall Road.
