For 125 years, the Guelph Humane Society has been dedicated to protecting and caring for the many animals with whom we share our community and our lives, and to fostering the important bonds with animals that enrich us as individuals, families and communities. Some of the services that the Guelph Humane Society provides are animal sheltering, pet rehoming, adoption services, veterinary care, pet identification, a progressive spay/neuter program, and return of lost pets. Founded in 1893, the Guelph Humane Society provides care and shelter for approximately 3,000 homeless, stray, injured, orphaned, abandoned, and abused animals each year, throughout Guelph and Wellington County. Over 200 cats were surrendered into their care in 2021, and another 373 came in as strays. Cats were by far the most cared for animal at GHS in 2021. In 2021 alone, 761 adoptions were facilitated, 433 of which were cats. In addition to adoptions, their return-to-owner rates increased in 2021, where 25% of cats were reunited with their families, versus 21% in 2019 & 2020. There are multiple rooms for the cats to stay in while at the shelter if not in foster, including the Cat Adoption Room. This is a large cat room with expanding cat portals, viewing domes, large runs for cats to play in, and even an outdoor catio! The Cat Adoption Room is bright, spacious and an incredible space for cats to await their Happy Tails.
