For nearly 20 years, The Georgian Triangle Humane Society has provided loving care and shelter to the homeless, hungry and injured animals of the South Georgian Bay region. But their ability to continue is in jeopardy. With a growing population, a building bursting at the seams and global economic events putting an enormous strain on underserved segments of the community, pressure to safely deliver programs for pets and people mounts. So on May 26th, Tatham Engineering in Collingwood hosted an information day for Georgian Triangle Humane Society supporters to announce their partnership in developing the new GTHS building next door to their office.

The Team at GTHS is embarking on a $14 million fundraising campaign to build a new 19,200 square foot Regional Centre for Pets and People on five acres of land in Collingwood, with over $2.7 million already raised. The new facility will be a destination for all ages, enhancing the wellness benefits of the human-animal bond. For more information: www.gths.ca
