GUELPH, ON (November 30, 2018) – The Guelph Humane Society (GHS) is seeking information about a dog found wandering in the York and Watson Road area of Guelph. The dog was found by a Good Samaritan at approximately 10:30pm at night on Friday, November 23, and brought to the Guelph Humane Society early on Saturday morning. The dog was immediately brought to a veterinarian for medical care.

The female dog, a Yellow Labrador mix, was found with a large infected wound on her right shoulder, likely caused by a bite from another animal. The golden-coloured dog, who is approximately 2 years old, is also suffering from severe untreated eye issues in both her eyes.

“We would appreciate anyone who has more information on this dog’s history to come forward and share what they know,” says Megan Swan, Lead Animal Protection Officer. “We need to understand more about her condition and why she was wandering in an industrial area.”

If you have any information that could assist GHS, please call 519-824-3091.

GHS is contracted by the City of Guelph to provide provincially mandated animal protection services, which addresses any stray and roaming pets in the City. This service provides important support for citizens in the community, who may come across a stray animal. Any fees associated with providing the animal control service to the City of Guelph do not support the activities of the humane society, such as extensive medical care, spay and neuter surgeries, microchipping, training, enrichment and pet adoption.  These services are supported by generous donors in our community. GHS is grateful to our community for continuing to support and give the care to stray pets in need.
