The Guelph Humane Society expanded initiatives, knowledge and practices on how we can help more injured, sick and orphaned wildlife. In 2016, 3x’s more wildlife animals were successfully transferred to licensed rehabilitation centers than in the previous year.

The Guelph Humane Society took in 23 different species of Companion and Farm Animals in 2016

In 2016, we had a placement rate of 91%, where 1,408 companion and farm animals were adopted, claimed or transferred.

2015 was an exciting year full of new opportunities as Adrienne McBride (Executive Director) and Lisa Veit (Associate Director) joined the Guelph Humane Society team.

One of our most significant achievements over the past year was implementing the Capacity for Care (C4C) program, a management tool that helps shelters better meet the needs of cats under their care by using strategies that reduce stress and illness.

Our Barn Cat program has offered a unique approach to improving outcomes for our most difficult-to-adopt felines - such as those that are poorly socialized or have difficult behaviours such as poor litter box habits.

In 2015:

  • 182 Dogs were adopted
  • 638 Cats were adopted
  • 75 Small Animals were adopted
