In order to align the GTHS Animal Centre organization with the most recent governmental mandates, the centre will remain open on a limited capacity with essential services being offered remotely or through facilitation. The building will remain open to Animal Control and Bylaw officers from contracted municipalities. The following is a list of their main services and the impact these temporary changes have on them:
Adoptions will continue to take place Monday through Friday using an appointment model that respects social distancing. Potential adopters are asked to visit www.gths.ca/animals-for-adoption and follow the instructions.
We are putting a hold on our Community Cats Program until we are able to restore all of our resources.
We will continue to provide emergency pet boarding to those in need as our resources allow. Please call (705) 445-5204 ext. 0 if you require this service.
We regret to inform you that we are “PAWs-ing” all scheduled GTHS Events (including the 18th Annual Furball Gala and the 8th Annual Walkathon). It is our hope that we will be able to reschedule our essential fundraisers at a later date.
We will be accepting animals into our program on an emergency basis. Animals that are injured, abandoned or at risk will be prioritized. Please call (705) 445-5204 ext. 0 if an animal needs help.
Our pet pantry service will be available to pet owners struggling with supplies for their pet. The GTHS will facilitate a home delivery service supported by our incredible volunteers. Please call (705) 445-5204 ext. 0 if you are in need.
We will continue selling items from our retail store Monday thru Friday (food, litter, toys, leashes, etc.). Retail purchases will be conducted over the phone with purchases being set outside for pick up by the public. Please call (705) 445-5204 ext. 0 to arrange a purchase. Only debit and credit cards will be accepted at this time.
Treasure Tails will remain closed to the public until further notice.
With patience, compassion and resilience, we will weather this pandemic together. Be kind to yourselves, your community and your pets. If you have the ability, we are gratefully receiving monetary donations to help care for our animals. Donations can be made online at www.gths.ca/donatenow/
