Supporter Spotlight


Here at the Guelph Humane Society, we require volunteers to help us out with a variety of different tasks and each year our volunteers contribute over 8000 hours, not to mention the countless hours spent fostering! Volunteers help with walking dogs, cleaning cages, socializing small animals, cuddling cats, driving our animals to vet appointments, driving injured and orphaned wildlife to licensed rehabilitators, planning events, and so much more!

Kathy is one of over 300 volunteers that helps out with our many tasks here at GHS serving as a Feline Friend, Companion Animal Chauffeur, Event volunteer and recently, has been helping out with our outdoor donation drop off. Since starting volunteering with us in August 2019, Kathy has served over 150 hours, which is pretty impressive given the cancellation of our in-shelter volunteer program due to COVID-19 back in March 2020. Not only does Kathy love the animals here at GHS, she loves the people and is always a friendly face to staff and visitors.

We have a variety of different volunteer roles here at GHS to fit all abilities and personalities! If you are interested in volunteering with us in the future, be sure to check out our different roles at the link below. Once we are able to onboard new volunteers again, volunteer applications will be available online.
