The Guelph Humane Society has been providing care for the animals in our community since 1893! Each year we help approximately 3,000 animals in need. We do not receive government funding for our services, relying solely on private funding and public donations. By donating to one of the following funds, you can help make a difference in the lives of the animals in our community.
