In an effort to help minimize the impact of Ontario’s current state of emergency on members of the South Georgian Bay Community, the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) will continue offering both its Pet Pantry and Emergency Board services as long as their resources allow.
The GTHS operates a pet food bank for pet owners who have come across challenging times and require assistance with keeping pets fed. Time and time again we see pet owners prioritizing pet food over food for themselves; the GTHS strives to alleviate the need for pet owners to choose between providing proper nourishment for their pets or themselves. Given these uncertain times, the GTHS will be offering Pet Pantry services, despite the fact that the GTHS Animal Centre remains temporary closed to the public.
Should you require use of Pet Pantry services, please call (705) 445-5204 ext. 0. A GTHS team member will connect with you and schedule delivery of pet food right to your door. This service is strictly confidential.
In order to help replenish supplies, the GTHS has placed a tote outside of the GTHS Animal Centre (549 Tenth Line, Collingwood) for anyone who would like to donate unopened dog food, cat food and litter to this program.
The GTHS will offer short term housing for the pets of people in crisis through the Emergency Boarding Program. This is a last resort program for individuals experiencing crisis and are unable to care for their animals temporarily and is offered within the limits of available resources. People who are fleeing domestic violence, homeless because of a disaster such as flooding or fire, or those who have suffered a medical emergency or are entering a recovery program or rehab center would qualify for this service.

If you or someone you know are in need of pet emergency boarding, please contact the GTHS at 705-445-5204 ext. 0
Please note that most GTHS programs and services are currently on hold; as we do no receive any government funding, we are gratefully accepting donations in any amount to help us care for the animals currently at the GTHS Animal Centre and foster homes. https://www.gths.ca/donatenow/
