What we need to share about Pet Support Services

“Forever in our hearts and never forgotten that you are our fur family.

With COVID going on in our families and communities, we also look after the needs of our beloved pets.

 Thanks so much to Georgian Triangle Humane Society for assisting the needs in Saugeen First Nations.”

 ~ Renita Nawash, Saugeen First Nations

This is the voice of Renita. Renita is a healthcare provider in Saugeen First Nations, a community that has worked in collaboration with the GTHS’ Pet Support Services and in particular the Pet Pantry Program over the past year. With COVID in the community, it has been a challenge for people to get out during lock-downs to access food for pets. Donations to this program were much appreciated and well utilized and it’s not too late to help.

This September, we want to spend some time sharing the importance of the Pet Support Services Program . Because in times like these, pet owners need us more than ever. When you make a gift, you keep pets with their families.

As Canadian’s we love our companion animals, approximately 62% of us have at least one pet and we don’t want to let financial constraints separate vulnerable families due to lack of access to pet food and basic pet supplies.

The goal of our Pet Support Services Program is simple, keeping families together.

During September, here are some ways that you can help.

To help a community member and their pet, you can make a gift to Pet Support Serves online. Attend our Regional Pet Pantry Food Drive in partnership with the Lake at Blue Mountains. September 20 – 24th at the Lake at Blue Mountains, we will be collecting cash donations, food, and supplies.

Throughout this month, we will be sharing amazing stories that illustrate the true impact of the Pet Support Services Program, showcasing how important this critical program is to our local community.

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Sonya
