Adoption Monday: Jenny, Rottweiler: Erin, ON

Jenny is a friendly three-year-old Rottweiler who has captured the hearts of staff and volunteers at the shelter. 

Jenny knows basic commands and is good with other dogs. 

She is best suited to families with children over the age of 15. Jenny will be a wonderful addition and loyal companion to her new family.

Jenny is house trained and up-to-date with routine shots.


Upper Credit Humane Society helps hundreds of animals each year find loving homes. 

The original name of the Upper Credit Humane Society (UCHS) was the Erin and Hillsburgh and District Humane Society (EHDHS). The EHDHS was founded as a Branch of the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Ontario SPCA) in 1991. The original founders of the Society were Robert and Anne Burr, who, with a group of concerned local citizens, began holding meetings in an Erin church basement. During the first year, the EHDHS concerned itself primarily with the welfare of local wildlife and investigating reports of cruelty to animals.

As more volunteers offered to help, the Society was able to take on more responsibilities. An office with a dedicated phone line was set up in the home of one of the volunteers. Volunteers provided foster homes for dogs and cats. A large foster home for dogs was set up on a farm following a cruelty case involving more than one hundred dogs that had to be removed from their owner. More than a dozen cats were fostered in a playhouse in the back yard of another volunteer. As the number of animals cared for by the Society increased, so did the amount of fund-raising required to support the work.
