The Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) is thrilled to announce the return of the Furball Soirée, taking place on September 9, 2023, at Georgian Peaks Ski Club. This marquis GTHS event promises an extraordinary evening of dinner, dancing, and impact for the GTHS.
All proceeds raised from the Furball Soirée will go directly to GTHS programs and services that prioritize community mental health and wellness through the promotion of the human-animal bond. A broad range of studies have demonstrated how the human-animal bond can play an important role in the management of mental health in children, adolescents, and adults alike (habri.org).
“The GTHS helps to keep more than 3,000 pets out of the shelter system each year through our numerous programs and services designed to keep pets with their families during emergencies and crisis,” explains Sonya Reichel, GTHS Executive Director. “We believe that people help pets and pets, ultimately, help people. Animals help us connect to humanity and improve our physical, mental, and emotional health. That is why all programs at the GTHS embrace the essential element of human and animal wellness, which is enhanced through the human-animal bond. Supporting the Furball Soirée will ensure the GTHS has the critical funding needed to maintain programs that advance the overall health and wellness of pets and people of South Georgian Bay.”
