December 3, 2019 (Guelph, ON) – The Guelph Humane Society (GHS) is celebrating this Giving Tuesday with a litter full of adorable newborn puppies with a heart-warming story to share. GHS has seven (7) adorable puppies in their care, along with the puppies’ mom, Cara and her sister, Reese.

Cara, and her sister, Reese, both hound mixes, arrived together at the Guelph Humane Society in mid-October. Cara was at the end of her pregnancy and in need of a safe place to bring her puppies into the world. Cara received round-the-clock care by dedicated staff members and veterinarians, until she had her puppies. Reese never left Cara’s side throughout the whole experience and continues to be a dedicated aunt to the seven puppies.  GHS is pleased to share the puppies are all healthy and safe and are currently living in a loving foster home with their mom, Cara, and Aunt Reese.

“These little bundles of joy are now 5 weeks old and are starting to explore the world around them,” says Lisa Veit, Associate Director. “They play like young pups do and their personalities are so spirited and curious. They melt the hearts of everyone who meets them, and certainly won’t be on the “naughty list” this year!”

The care of the puppies, Cara, and Reese has only been possible thanks to the generosity of the donors in our community. The Guelph Humane Society wants to thank you, its supporters, for helping Cara and her family get the best start in life. This holiday season consider giving the gift of warmth and hope to our community’s most vulnerable animals. Animals just like Reese, Cara and her puppies, who desperately needed special care and love. Donate today by calling 519-824-3091, going online at, or mailing a cheque to 500 Wellington St. W., P.O. Box 684, Guelph, ON N1H 6L3.

The puppies, named Baby Ruth, Peppermint Patty, Sweet Marie, Rolo, Aero, Kinder, and O’Henry, will be up for adoption this Giving Tuesday (December 3). Cara and Reese will also be looking for a home where they can stay together. More information about the process to adopt can be found on the GHS Available Animals webpage.
