GUELPH, ON (January 24, 2020) – The Guelph Humane Society was notified of an owner surrendering 97 cats, all from one home this past week.

GHS stepped up and made the decision to help these cats by taking them into their care. GHS have assessed the cats’ basic medical needs. They have provided basic medical care of vaccines, microchipping and parasite control. They will have a better idea of the costs for additional and specialized care next week. Surprisingly, most of the cats appear to be in fair condition, considering the of number of cats that were living together. However, several cats have eye issues and others with additional medical conditions are being monitored closely by our team.

The cats will be housed at GHS or with fosters until they are scheduled for their spay/neuters.

GHS is OVERWHELMED by the support from the community! THANK YOU to everyone who donated, shared the story, dropped off donations, or cheered them on so far! You made a difference in the lives of these kitties. Together, we have saved these vulnerable cats.

Overall this week’s intake will cost at a minimum of $20,000. If you haven’t been able to donate yet, please consider a gift to help these cats and the over 100 other animals already in their care. Please visit:

GHS will continue to keep you updated, as they learn more about these sweet kitties and as they become available for adoption.
