Providing even greater care to animals in need
The Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) opened its doors on April 25th for the first time at their new on-site Animal Hospital, providing veterinary care to shelter animals along with community feral cats. The GTHS was grateful to receive a $65,000 grant from PetSmart Charities of Canada in 2019 which accelerated the opening of the animal hospital. Additional funding for the project, which is estimated to have totaled $382,000, was made possible by the generosity of our community and the commitment of donors to the GTHS, the majority of whom are active volunteers with the organization. Opening the new five-room GTHS Animal Hospital will mean that pets and animals in the care of GTHS will receive spay or neuter procedures, emergency medical / surgical interventions, and routine procedures such as vaccines and micro-chipping right on site at the shelter facility. Moving forward, GTHS is proud to announce that Dr. Anick Amaro has been hired as Director of Medicine and will lead the veterinary care practice at GTHS. Photos/Story: Dave West Photography.
