Supporter Spotlight


Here at the Guelph Humane Society, we strive to ensure every animal in our care gets the love and affection they deserve (and more!) while they await their loving home. Thanks to our Canine Companion volunteers, dogs in our care are able to get plenty of outdoor time, going on long walks, and having plenty of time to run around in our outdoor playpen.

Adrianne is one of our amazing Canine Companions and has been volunteering with us since 2018. Whether our dogs want to go on long walks, play a game of fetch or just sit back, relax, and take a nap (or silly pictures) in a quiet space, Adrianne is there to give them plenty of love and affection! From having that regular, weekly one-on-one time with volunteers like Adrianne, dogs in our care are able to get comfortable and come out of their shell, setting them up for success with their future family.

Canine Companion volunteers aren’t just dog walkers – they play a big part in helping us socialize the dogs that come into our care. Being a Canine Companion volunteer can be tiring with those long walks and running around in the playpen, and can require a lot of patience, but the reward of seeing the dogs come out of their shell and getting to be one of their trusted people makes it all worth it!
