Here at the Guelph Humane Society, we rely heavily on our network of over 100 active foster families to provide a warm, loving home where animals can thrive and develop into wonderful pets!
Kate is one of our paw-some foster volunteers! Kate is an advocate for animal welfare, working in the industry herself, in addition to volunteering with us here at GHS and at a local Donkey Sanctuary. Kate joined our team of foster volunteers in early 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic hit and despite the many challenges COVID-19 has brought, Kate and her boyfriend, Daniel, have welcomed 5 dogs into their home, giving them a comfortable and loving environment while they awaited their #HappyTail!
Being a foster parent can sometimes involve nights of little sleep, days of demanding animals looking for walks, play or food, and the occasional accident while house training. It takes a special kind of person to welcome an animal with little to no house training into their home, but the reward of seeing them learn and improve before going off to their new family, is worth all the troubles!
