About us

About The Georgian Triangle Humane Society

The GTHS is a non-profit charity that operates an animal center serving the south Georgian Bay region by providing shelter for homeless animals and adopting them to caring families. We offer innovative programs that enhance and support the human-animal bond.

Our mission is to deliver innovative programs and compassionate services that enhance the lives of pets in need and the people that care for them. Our Core Values are team work, responsive solutions and compassionate service.

Together, we enhance lives, inspire compassion and bring joy to pets and people.

Adoption

Animal Adoption

The GTHS facilitates the adoption of over 1300 pets annually to loving families and individuals. Our goal is to find the best match between adopters and the cats, dogs, kittens and puppies in our program. The GTHS uses a conversational style process (Adopter’s Welcome) to engage adopters and make the adoption process seamless from start to finish.
