Helping Animals Since 1977

About Animalert

Animalert was founded in London, Ontario, Canada in 1977 by four animal lovers who wanted to ensure that pets were adopted by caring guardians. We now have about 35 active members, plus our large network of volunteers, which helps us spread the word about our adoption program and raise funds to offset our operating expenses. We are able to place about 250 cats and dogs a year into responsible, loving homes. Not bad for a volunteer group, but we'd like to do better and with your help, we can!


Animalert focuses on three main areas: Adoption, Education, and Spaying/Neutering.

Animalert works independently of the London Humane Society and London Animal Care and Control Centre. We raise all of our money through adoption fees, private donations and fundraising efforts, such as our annual Christmas bazaar. Because we have virtually no administrative overhead, approximately 90 percent of our money is used for veterinary care, food and housing.
