Mississauga Humane Society
Mississauga Humane Society (MHS) is a registered non-profit, no-kill charity, founded in 1999. We have grown over the years, but the mission remains the same: to save as many animals as possible.
The organization runs on the unpaid labour of an extensive network of passionate volunteers and six dedicated board members. Our volunteers rescue and foster hundreds of cats and dogs every year in Mississauga and beyond.
Having many caring foster homes enables us to operate without the high cost of an animal shelter and allows homeless dogs and cats to thrive in a home environment until they are adopted.

Peel Learning Foundation
The Peel Learning Foundation is a community based, charitable organization that raises funds to enable Peel District School Board students to achieve personal excellence by providing resources that help them overcome barriers. Our goal is to raise funds to level the playing field and help students do more and achieve more.
1 in 5 students attending school in Peel Region faces issues related to poverty that prevent them from fully participating in school.
And in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, more than ever, students are turning to the Peel Learning Foundation for support.
In 2020, requests to the Student Emergency Needs program grew to 1,121 students from 312 in 2019.
Many students come to school hungry because there’s no food at home. Others lack basic necessities like winter clothing or school supplies. Students also face difficult challenges in the home environment where a parent or guardian has lost a job or there’s an emergency situation that requires a compassionate response. Students and their families and caregivers have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 – and thanks to generous donors, the Foundation can say ‘yes’ when we receive a request for help.
Thank you for supporting this important work through the Mississauga Marathon.
