Remembering Kathi Reid

Kathi Reid

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Kathi Reid, Director Emeritus with the Georgian Triangle Humane Society.

Kathi was a founding Board Member for the Society and was instrumental in creating and developing the now thriving animal welfare organization. In April of 2017, Kathi was awarded a 10 year volunteer pin for her long-time dedication and commitment to the GTHS and in October of 2017, Kathi was awarded the rare designation of Director Emeritus.

At the event, Board member Deb Boyd said,

“Kathi worked tirelessly to upgrade the standards at one of the temporary shelters located on Hope Street, years before being able to move into our current facility. She became the driving force and primary advocate for the health, welfare and well-being of all of the animals. Once we were able to open the shelter Kathi became The Director Animal Care. She along with her team developed policies, procedures, protocols and was really very instrumental with infection control, quarantine, daily care and then of course adoption. Kathi, it is with great honour, admiration and respect that we present you with a certificate to make you our first Director Emeritus.”

Kathi will leave a legacy with the GTHS as she has touched and improved the lives of hundreds of animals.

Kathi, you will always be in our hearts.
