NEWS RELEASE: Adopt a rescued bunny from the Guelph Humane Society this February
GUELPH, ON (February 1, 2022) – February is Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month, and to encourage more bunny adoptions, the Guelph Humane Society (GHS) is reducing rabbit adoption fees. Normally $160, throughout the month of February a bunny can be adopted from GHS for just $50 (no taxes or additional fees).
“All bunnies we adopt out are already spayed or neutered,” says Samantha White, Adoption Coordinator at GHS. “A spay or neuter surgery can cost hundreds of dollars, so adopting an already altered bunny can definitely save you money.”

NEWS RELEASE: Help animals in need by adopting a Guelph Humane Society kennel this year
GUELPH, ON (November 25, 2021) – The Guelph Humane Society (GHS) is offering the opportunity to not only adopt animals, but to adopt kennels as well. The Happy Tails Begin Here – Kennel Adoption Program allows individuals, groups or businesses to adopt a cage or kennel in the new GHS building on a yearly basis, allowing people to visit the spot they adopt while supporting vulnerable animals in the community.
“It’s another unique way for people to commit to helping animals in our community,” says Jen Fraser, Manager of Donor Relations at GHS. “When you adopt a kennel or cage, you get to customize a plaque that will go on the space you adopt. Not only can you visit to see the plaque – but the public will be able to see it as well.”
