Our Vision Statement

A sustainable population of healthy animals supported by a community that cares. 

Our Mission Statement

The Guelph Humane Society’s mission is to promote the welfare of all animals
and prevent cruelty and suffering.

Welcome to the Guelph Humane Society!

The Guelph Humane Society (GHS) has been sheltering and rescuing animals in the Guelph/ Wellington Communities since 1893. Each year the GHS cares for approximately 3000 animals in need. Not only do we provide animal sheltering and adoption services but also provide regular veterinary care and have a progressive spay/ neuter program in place.

The society delivers a comprehensive Humane Education Program to community schools, to youth groups and clubs as well as right here at the shelter. Visit our "Just For Kids" section for more information.

The GHS enforces the OSPCA Act investigating animal cruelty and care concerns in the Guelph and Wellington County and handles animal related by law enforcement and licensing services in the City of Guelph.

The Guelph Humane Society is a registered charitable organization; it does not receive any government funding and exists solely on private funding and public donations.

TIP OF THE MONTH

The new school year has started and with it comes increased traffic on our city streets. Remember to keep your dogs leashed at all times except in designated leash-free areas, to prevent accidents in the road. Concerned about an unleashed, unattended or possibly stray animal? Call us at 519-824-3091.

Project Dog Foundation

Project Dog Foundation was created to help give the thousands of dogs in shelters across Canada a better life and more comfortable stay within their shelter.  Project Dog Foundation is for people who want to make a difference but are unable to adopt or foster a shelter dog.  Your donations go towards food, toys, blankets, training and medical care - all with the ultimate goal of finding each shelter dog a loving new home!
