What kinds of farm animals can we help?

Even at our old building, the Guelph Humane Society was always willing to take in farm animals that needed care, from chickens to pigs! While we didn’t have much space, our Animal Care team would create safe and suitable enclosures to make sure farm animals in need had a place to stay.

Now, at our new building at 190 Hanlon Creek Boulevard, we have a dedicated Farm Animal Room which has been occupied since we first moved into the building in March 2021. While chickens (hens and roosters) are our most common guests, we have also recently taken in domestic ducks and expect that we’ll see various other types of farm animals in the coming months!

Our Farm Animal Program is able to accommodate a variety of farm animals. While smaller animals stay in our Farm Animal Room (chickens, ducks, pigs), we can also assist with larger animals (horses, cows) through placing in one of our foster farms until adoption, or by connecting with our partnership network.
