Frank’s Birthday Fundraiser by Ted’s Tire Discounter (May 1 – May 31)

From the organizer:

Frank the Tire Cat has become an icon &  mascot of our store. Many customers come just to see him, give him attention or bring treats. During the month of May, we will be hosting a birthday fundraiser in honour of Frank for the Guelph Humane Society (referred to as GHS). We will collect donations in store, online (tedstire.ca) and on our Facebook Page. Also, for every set of tires sold during the month of May we will donate an additional $10! We will also be collecting food, toys and other useful supplies for the GHS in-store.

Let’s get ready to celebrate!

Bake for the Animals! (Feb. 1 – Feb. 29)

Start your ovens, it’s time to Bake for the Animals!

February is our most delicious month of the year! Cupcakes, brownies, and cookies, oh my! It’s all about our community coming together and creating delicious treats for friends, family and colleagues.



What is Bake for the Animals?  

Bake for the Animals is a chance for members of the community to show of their baking skills (or attempt to have baking skills) and host a bake sale fundraiser for the GHS! Bakers pick a date, time & location that works for them, and sell their baked goods, with donations going to GHS. This year we are working with the Ottawa Humane Society, who have put together the amazing website where you’ll be launching your virtual bakery!

When is it?  

GHS is running this Bake for the Animals for the whole month of February! This allows members of the community the flexibility to pick date(s) & time(s) that work best for you.

How can you get involved?

Start planning your event and thinking of ideas for your delicious treats.

Get your friends, family and colleagues together to join in! Bake as a team, or encourage them to support by purchasing a delicious treat and/or making a donation. Donations can be made online through your virtual bakery, or collected in person by you (offline pledge form can be downloaded HERE). All proceeds go right to our community’s most vulnerable animals in the Guelph and Wellington County.
