A Celebration: Pet Protect Guelph receives $4500 from the Guelph Community Foundation
Pet Protect Guelph is pleased to announce that the Guelph Community Foundation has once again provided funds to support Pet Protect Guelph’s work. This donation received will help to fund essential veterinary care, pet food and supplies, and other administrative costs associated with the program. As a non-profit, we rely solely on donations and grants to run our program. “The Guelph Community Foundations and its supporters have always been so kind to us. We always look forward to getting to work and share our vision with the GCF”, Liz Vardon explains. She is the Executive Director of Pet Protect Guelph.
Pet Protect Guelph (PPG) is a pet fostering program designed to offer a temporary home to pets of marginalized populations within the City of Guelph. This can include those that are precariously housed, women fleeing domestic violence, those undergoing mental, medical or addictions treatment. Since its inception in January 2018, PPG has fostered more than 30 pets. Pet Protect Guelph is partnered with the Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition.
Ways to get involved and support Pet Protect Guelph:
- Become a Pet Foster! Fosters can choose when to foster, and pet-sit for an average of 2-4 months. All supplies are included. Applicants can apply online at www.petprotectguelph.com/foster
- Join in at our Pasta Night on November 10th, 2019 at Breezy Corners, 5-7PM. Tickets can be purchased here: https://guelph.snapd.com/events/view/1275018
