A 100% volunteer, NO KILL animal rescue
and CRA Registered Charity!
Located on the north shore of Lake Superior, the Marathon Humane Society opened its doors on July 27, 2000, to rescue and care for abused, abandoned and surrendered dogs and cats in Marathon, Ontario and surrounding areas. To date we have placed over 660 animals in new, fur-ever homes.

All animals are de-wormed and receive some vaccinations, and all adult animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Please visit our dog and cat pages for information about adopting a puppy or kitten. Thanks to your generous donations we can do all of this while keeping adoption fees at a low $40 for cats and $50 for dogs.

Our goal is to find loving, qualified homes for each cat and dog, while ensuring that the animal and new home are a good fit. Volunteers take wonderful care of the animals, but there's nothing like having a family of your own! Please call (807) 229-6306 for more information about adopting one of our wonderful dogs or cats.

According to Marathon By-Law 1788 Section 6, dogs in the back of a moving vehicle must be PROPERLY tethered or kenneled. To read the by-law, please click on the picture.
If you cannot afford to spay or neuter your pet,
can you really afford to HAVE ONE?
We all see cats and dogs given away for FREE, but that's where the "free" part ends. If you plan to take good care of your cat or dog you will need to spend money on vaccinations and veterinary care, food, licence tags and much more throughout its life.
And of course, it will need your patience, kindness and lots of love.
The cost to spay or neuter your pet is a comparatively small, one time fee. If you cannot afford to spay or neuter, can you afford to take care of an animal for 12-18 years? 
Neglect, abandonment or committing an act of cruelty upon an animal is punishable by imprisonment and/or fines. See Bill C-15B (as passed by the House of Commons) for further information.
