The Great Canadian Adopt-a-thon!

Content: It's Canada's 150th Birthday and Guelph Humane Society is recognizing this milestone by helping 150 animals (or more!) find loving homes for an adoption fee of $150 or less! Our goal is to find happy tails for 150 dogs, cats, birds and small animals between Canadaís official birthday (July 1st) and Labour Day (September 4th). With the communityís support, we know we can make it happen! Animals with Canadian-themed names (think Rocky, Gretzky and Queen Elizabeth) will be eligible for this promotional adoption fee. First, we need your help to come up with Canadian-themed names! For a donation of $15, you can help us name our Canadian animals. We know that Guelph is a creative community and we canít wait to hear all the suggestions. NAME AN ANIMAL HERE!NAME AN ANIMAL HERE!

The Gift of a Home

If you would prefer a loved one to get the joy of coming to the Humane Society, meeting our animals and being the one to choose their new furry family member; you can acquire an adoption gift certificate! This can be done at the Guelph Humane Society. You will receive a package to give to your loved one. At your giftee convenience they will come to the Humane Society and adopt an animal of their choice. At the end of the adoption process we contact you as the gifter, and you pay for the adoption fee. A gift that keeps on giving, both for you, your loved one, AND the animal looking for their new home! If you would like more information on our Adoption certificate you can email, or call 519-824-3091.

Cat Nail Clinic

Our Cat Nail Clinic is now twice a month!

We are now having our Cat Nail Clinic on every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month!

We have added the extra Saturday to our Cat Nail Clinic to accommodate our feline friends with Soft Paw applications.  It usually takes 4-8 weeks for the Soft Paws to fall off. It's best for the Soft Paw to take its natural course to fall off and we would like to make our Cat Nail Clinic more available to accommodate this.  

For the Month of January we will have our Cat Nail Clinic on January 9th and the 23rd 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

Cat Nail Trim - $15

  • Soft Paw application 2 feet (includes Trim) - $20
  • Soft Paw application 4 feet (includes Trim) - $30

You can make you appointment today at 519-824-3091!
