We thank you in advance for your generosity and consideration of our animals’ needs! Our animals need your help more than ever during this challenging time. Each year the Guelph Humane Society serves over 3,000 vulnerable animals in the Guelph and surrounding areas. We do not receive government funding, we exist solely thanks to your generosity!

Charitable Registration Number = 119236305RR0001

Cash donations are our number one need in order to continue the high-level of care every animal that comes into our shelter receives.  For donations over $20 you will receive a donation receipt.

Monetary donations are generously accepted at guelphhumane.ca!

In-Kind donations are also a generous way to give back. If you wish to receive a charitable tax receipt for your new, unopened items, please be sure to bring a purchase receipt with you when you donate your items, so the true value is known for CRA.
