The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies is Canada's federation of SPCAs and humane societies. We bring together those who work with and care for animals to promote respect and humane treatment toward all animals.
My name is Iffat, and I live in Saskatoon. I’m currently a pet parent to two doggie brothers who are 10 years old, and I’ve been a monthly donor to the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies since 2009. I like making monthly donations to CFHS because, to me, supporting animal welfare should be a regular and ongoing initiative. CFHS has taken many of the nation’s animal welfare organizations under its umbrella and provided them with various forms of assistance. This means a lot to me because supporting animals is a major priority.
I have always cared deeply for animals and their well-being – cats most of all. As a child, I would feed all the neighbourhood cats (even ones with homes!). I was particularly touched by those who were homeless and needed regular meals to ward off their hunger. I currently volunteer with Saskatoon Street Cat Rescue. One of my regular duties is to tend to feral cat colony stations that we have set up at some horse stables here in town.
