Guelph Humane Society: Giver of HOPE

The Guelph Humane Society is 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. And we at the HOPE House couldn’t agree more. Our relationships with our beloved pets are mutually beneficial, promoting health and well-being for both by reducing stress, alleviating symptoms of depression and anxiety, reducing perception of pain, reducing isolation, and providing comfort, hope and unconditional love.

 

Thanks to the Guelph Humane Society, HOPE House community members’ pets have received food and treats for their dogs and puppies, cats and kittens, bunnies, hamsters and other rodent friends, as well as cat litter, toys, collars and pet waste bags.

The Guelph Humane Society has a mission to promote the welfare of all animals and prevent cruelty and suffering. Their mission extends to animals within the HOPE House community through their monthly donations of extra pet items so that our community members’ pets can get the care and support they deserve. 

 

The Guelph Humane Society is a community leader in advocating on behalf of the most vulnerable animals, in particular those animals whose lives they can influence through care, education, community support and protection. They provide animal sheltering, surrender and adoption services, pet identification, a progressive spay/neuter program, and a lost pet program for pets to be reunited with their families. They also provide care and assistance to over 1,700 sick, orphaned and injured wildlife.

 

We had the chance to chat with Louise Frost, Manager of Marketing and Communications, and she shared a bit about her role at the Guelph Humane Society. “I get to share the stories of these animals and showcase what our staff, volunteers, and fosters do every day – their love, care and passion is amazing towards animals. It’s a privilege to be able to show the community the impact of their donations. For over 125 years, we’ve put animals first and we continue to show our passion for helping animals by continuing to care for over 3,000 animals every year!” 

 

Louise says, “our community is so generous, that we want to ensure if we get a little extra that it continues to be given back to the community… by means of other not-for-profit organizations, just like HOPE House.”
