There’s No Place Like Home – GHS VARIETY SHOW

“There’s No Place Like Home” Variety Show is the first television event of its kind! It will air on Rogers tv in Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, Brantford and Stratford on Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 7pm-9pm. It will also be available to stream live on the Rogers tv website.

Hosted by The Weather Network’s Kim MacDonald, a long-time national television host and animal lover, “There’s No Place Like Home” will feature local musical and dance acts, educational animal segments, and holiday-inspired special moments, all from inside our brand new home at 190 Hanlon Creek Boulevard. And to end the show, we will be pulling the winning ticket LIVE on the air for what we hope will be our BIGGEST 50/50 lottery jackpot yet!

We will be selling 50/50 tickets leading up to the show, plus running an online auction. All money raised goes towards the vulnerable animals in our care as they wait for their Happy Tails. Because the animals all know that there’s no place like home.

Black cat saying "You've CAT to be KITTEN me"

The PURR-fect Adoption Event!

Come and join us this Saturday, August 29 for our Purrfect Feline Adoption Event!

Visit 500 Wellington St. W. this Saturday and find your new fantastic feline. We will have a variety of cats available for adoption in a safe, COVID-friendly environment. Receive $100 worth of food to bring home with your new furry friend!*

If you plan on joining us, please keep in mind the following:

1) You must bring a mask and a cat carrier (so you can bring your feline friend home). We hope you’ll have your cell phone on hand too as we don’t want too many people waiting in line.

2) Check out our available cats <below or at https://guelphhumane.ca/adopt/available-animals/ > and if one stands out to you, please ensure you read all of its information. If you are interested in a kitty (or 2), please fill out an EOI form below, this does not guarantee adoption, however, it simplifies your adoption process.

3) We will be doing 15-minute meet and greets with up to 2 cats of your choice. This will allow you a chance to ask questions and see the cat’s purrsonality firsthand!

4) It is a “first come, first serve” style of event. We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s first choice of cat, however, we reserve the right to ultimately match the cat with the best home possible. Don’t worry – we will do our very best to match you with the cat that is purrfect for your family!

5) Thank you in advance for your patience! We developed many new processes due to COVID. We are working hard to ensure everything goes smoothly.

 

*Senior and special diet cats are excluded. Please chat with a GHS staff member for more information.
