The GTHS will help hundreds of dogs find homes in province-wide adoption event
Tails are wagging in excitement in communities across Ontario where a few hundred dogs are patiently waiting for their adoption day. Seven humane societies and SPCA’s, including the Georgian Triangle Humane Society, are coming together to collaborate on the Project 150: Dogs without Borders adoption event taking place July 15 – 18th.
Each participating organization will be hosting its own event, either at their shelter or adoption partner location. Two large-scale events will also be taking place at the PetSmart stores in Stoney Creek and Sarnia. The humane societies and SPCA’s are working with groups in Ontario and the United States to find loving homes for dogs from First Nations communities and overcrowded shelters in the south.
“Groups have asked for assistance with their dog populations and we are proud to partner with them to find forever homes,” says Lynne Patterson, Adoption and Outreach Supervisor. “A collaboration of this kind is a WIN for dogs in need, and we hope our local community members will be willing to open their hearts and homes this month.”
Humane societies and SPCA’s in all corners of the province worked throughout the month of June to transfer dogs in and prepare them for adoption. Each organization will have its own adoption procedure, so interested adopters are encouraged to check the websites for more details. Adoption fees and what is included with each adoption can also be found online.
