The Georgian Triangle Humane Society is a small shelter that accomplishes major achievements for pets and people in need in the South Georgian Bay community. Relying solely on the generosity of community members to support their operations, the society has joined Giving Tuesday (November 27th 2018) this year as part of a global day of giving and celebration around philanthropy.
To highlight the work at the GTHS, a video has been released telling Andrea’s story. One of hundreds of cats and dogs that came to the GTHS homeless this year, Andrea’s story illustrates the unwavering spirit of abandoned animals and their ability for unconditional love.
“This Giving Tuesday we want the community to be aware of the work we do. Our primary mission is to help homeless animals in need, however our work extends to people in need, as we believe that this is a critical step towards building a humane community. Animals are universally embraced as an essential element to human wellness and as such, we have developed programs such as our humane education and pet retention program. In short, our work improves the lives of pet which results in a healthier and more compassionate community.” said Sonya Reichel, Executive Director.
Last year the GTHS:
– Provided housing, veterinary care and support for over 1300 homeless pets
– Impacted 2000 youth through the GTHS Humane Education program
– Fixed 1073 cats and dogs including those from financially limited families
– Administered 1134 microchips
For Giving Tuesday 2018 and the entire holiday season, the society is asking the public to consider a gift to the Georgian Triangle Humane Society. Donations are being gratefully accepted at www.gths.ca/donatenow/.
