About Us

In 2010, a small group of passionate citizens in Guelph along with Dr. Kate Flanigan, a long standing veterinarian in  Guelph, had a vision of an alternative animal rescue organization that would give more animals in our community an  opportunity for a better life.  The group met to officially establish New Hope Animal Rescue. This dedicated group’s objective was to establish a new complimentary organization that would provide a low-cost spay/neuter program that would create affordable adoption fees for animals under New Hope Animal Rescue’s care.  A fostering program would be developed to include approved foster homes as well as promote the opportunity for owners to keep their pets until a forever home is found. This newly created organization was dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life for animals in Guelph and the surrounding area.
