Welcome to the Guelph Humane Society

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

Donate We are a registered charitable organization; it does not receive any government funding and exists solely on private funding and public donations.

Our newsletter has been on hiatus for a while, but it's back and  we have lots to share. Newsletter CoverInside you will find stories about the Gloria Kovach retirement dinner, our Junior Humane program, and adoptions.

On the cover is Herbie, a 4-year-old Australian Shepherd/Collie mix whose severe leg infection was healed with the help of our generous Duke’s Fund donors.
