GUELPH, ON (February 7, 2019) – The Guelph Humane Society (GHS) is excited to announce that the first round of cats from the 105 that were surrendered two weeks ago are now ready for adoption. GHS has been monitoring the cats since they were all brought into their care, and a few healthy cats have shown great progress adjusting to their new surroundings. This is the first of many rounds of these cats that will be ready for their new loving homes.
The 105 cats came into the care of GHS after the owner surrendered them on January 22. The cats were immediately given wellness checks, which included vaccinations, parasite control, and microchipping. All cats will also be spayed/neutered prior to being placed up for adoption. The few cats requiring extra medical care are still being monitored. Currently, there are 11 cats ready for their loving family! Each cat will flow through the adoption process as any other adoptable animal would. As more cats become available for adoption, they will be placed on GHS’s website at guelphhumane.ca. Here (pictured) is Splenda, one of the 105 surrendered cats, who got to go home to her new loving family this week!
“Our goal is to ensure the cats find loving homes that they can thrive in,” says Lisa Veit, Associate Director of GHS. “They have come from a challenging living environment and we want to ensure they adjust to their new homes and loving families, as smoothly as possible.”
The Guelph Humane Society was overwhelmed by the love and support for these cats from those in Guelph, Wellington County and from all over (including the United States). It was understood instantly that these cats were in desperate need of help. GHS wants to thank donors, fosters, and volunteers who provided support for these cats or any of the 100+ animals in their care.
