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.”
