What is Bake for the Animals?  

Bake for the Animals is a chance for members of the community to show of their baking skills (or attempt to have baking skills) and host a bake sale fundraiser for the GHS! Bakers pick a date, time & location that works for them, and sell their baked goods, with donations going to GHS. This year we are working with the Ottawa Humane Society, who have put together the amazing website where you’ll be launching your virtual bakery!

When is it?  

GHS is running this Bake for the Animals for the whole month of February! This allows members of the community the flexibility to pick date(s) & time(s) that work best for you.

How can you get involved?

Start planning your event and thinking of ideas for your delicious treats.

Get your friends, family and colleagues together to join in! Bake as a team, or encourage them to support by purchasing a delicious treat and/or making a donation. Donations can be made online through your virtual bakery, or collected in person by you (offline pledge form can be downloaded HERE). All proceeds go right to our community’s most vulnerable animals in the Guelph and Wellington County.

We hope you’ll have your cell phone on hand too as we don’t want too many people waiting in line. 2) Check out our available cats <below or at https://guelphhumane.ca/adopt/available-animals/ > and if one stands out to you, please ensure you read all of its information. If you are interested in a kitty (or 2), please fill out an EOI form below, this does not guarantee adoption, however, it simplifies your adoption process. 3) We will be doing 15-minute meet and greets with up to 2 cats of your choice. This will allow you a chance to ask questions and see the cat’s purrsonality firsthand! 4) It is a “first come, first serve” style of event. We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s first choice of cat, however, we reserve the right to ultimately match the cat with the best home possible. Don’t worry - we will do our very best to match you with the cat that is purrfect for your family! 5) Thank you in advance for your patience! We developed many new processes due to COVID. We are working hard to ensure everything goes smoothly.   *Senior and special diet cats are excluded. Please chat with a GHS staff member for more information.
