About This Website
The Cambridge & District Humane Society website and its sub-sites and pages were originally initiated, as a public service, by Mason & Yvonne Galganov of Brantford, Ontario, Canada. Site design and set-up is done by Web Site Design by Galganov, a Galganov & Associates company.
History: The Cambridge & District Humane Society's first website was established in 1997 in the Galganovs' personal web space. About one year later, Galganov & Associates built galganov.net which include cambridge.galganov.net and spca.cambridge.galganov.net. It was during the course of this move that the Humane Society's website was redesigned for the first time.
A short four months later CambridgeWeb.net was established and, with it, spca.CambridgeWeb.net which later changed to cambridgehumanesociety.org. Visitors come primarily from Canada but this site enjoys visitors in smaller numbers from over 40 countries around the world.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary @ spca.CambridgeWeb.net and the wonderful success this site has experienced we launched a redesigned website on the 25th of February, 2008.
Enhanced features facilitate users in emailing adoptable pets suggestions to friends or family who they think may be interested in adopting. This feature uses the user's Outlook (or other default) mail program to send these suggestions. You may still send general website referrals through our referral page (users are tracked to prevent abuse).
In 2018 we launched the current permutation and cambridgehumanesociety.org.
Easy viewing of adoptable and adopted pets is part of the enhancements. Additionally, timely delivery of information is made possible by Humane Society staff maintaining relevant areas of this website.
We hope you enjoy the experience!
