This issue highlights the features our future home will bring to vulnerable animals in our community. Animals like Cara & Reese, sweet hound sisters who came to GHS needing specialized care and a safe place to raise Cara’s seven puppies. While the puppies were quickly adopted, Cara & Reese stayed in foster care for over 120 days before finding their new family together. Our future home will offer dedicated and improved spaces where animals like Cara & Reese can thrive while they wait for their “happy tail”.

We will have spaces like a new Dog Adoption Area, generously sponsored by one of our building donors and long-time supporters, Susan Frasson. Read about why she was so inspired to help build a better home for our community’s animals in this issue’s Donor Feature.

There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has been a stressful time for us all. This Summer Edition of The Paw Press we are celebrating #HappyTails from the past few years. In May alone, over $14,000 was raised for the over 400 vulnerable kittens that will enter our care this year; kittens like Harper and Marigold, who have found their new loving families all thanks to you.

We also want to thank our selfless volunteer wildlife drivers, who have dedicated many hours to driving injured, orphaned, and sick wildlife to our wildlife rehab partners where the animal can continue to receive specialized care. Lastly, a touching tribute from a former adopter to their GHS adopted pet is included.

Spring 2020

How does one operate a humane society in a pandemic? It is a question we never thought we would ask ourselves, and yet here we are eight weeks into the COVID-19 outbreak, and Guelph Humane Society is doing just that.

How does one operate a humane society in a pandemic? It is a question we never thought we would ask ourselves, and yet here we are eight weeks into the COVID-19 outbreak, and Guelph Humane Society is doing just that. As Nelson Mandela once said, it always seems impossible until it is done. In this issue, we will touch on the ways we continue to serve our community and how we altered our services – such as contactless adoptions.

It’s our busiest season and we receive many calls regarding baby bunnies. We have shared tips on what to do if you see baby bunnies, they are adorable but require special care. We have animal updates on our boy Spencer, who is in foster care, and Roxy, one of the 105 surrendered cats this past January, who is now in her new loving home, enjoying the family life!

We hope to bring joy and comfort knowing that the animals in our community continue to be cared for.
