Fun Things For Animal-Lovers To Do in Kitchener-Waterloo

Visit the animals in Waterloo Park

Within Waterloo Park is a mini zoo with miniature ponies, miniature donkeys, alpacas, and more! It’s a great place to go for a walk, play on the new playground, and say hi to some furry animals.

Walk among the butterflies at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory

The Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory features an indoor tropical garden with thousands of free-flying butterflies. Plus you can spend some time with (and listen to) exotic bird species from around the world.

Socialize with goats at the Perth Farmhouse

Nestled in New Hamburg is the Perth Farmhouse, a small farm with 9 goats. It offers a Goat Social, a 60-minute private experience where you have the opportunity to take the goats out in the pasture to run and play.

Spend some time in a local dog park

If you’re looking to surround yourself with some furry friends, check out a local dog park. You can take your dog for some off-leash exercise and mingle with other dogs and their humans.

Support the Humane Society

When you spend time at the Human Society of Kitchener-Waterloo & Stratford Perth, you’ll be in the company of other animal lovers. You can volunteer for a number of positions to support the organization and the animals, or you can attend one of the many events or programs offered (birthday parties, centre tours, paint night, paws in the park). Of course, you can also adopt an animal so you’ll always have a furry friend nearby.
