Humane Society seeks information about owner of a dog found in appalling condition

GUELPH - Officials are seeking information from the public after a stray dog was found and brought to the Guelph Humane Society on April 3 in “deplorable condition.”

The Rottweiler mix, found wandering near Wellington St. and Gordon St. in Guelph, was secured by a concerned passerby and brought to the humane society for care.

The approximately one-year-old dog was immediately transported by an animal protection officer to the veterinarian for examination, which revealed the dog was dehydrated, extremely underweight, and suffering from severe hair loss.

It also  had untreated infections of the skin, eyes and ears.

The friendly male dog is now being monitored closely at the shelter, while receiving much-needed care.

“We are looking for the public’s assistance to help find the owner of this dog,” said Megan Swan, Ontario SPCA agent.

“We would like to understand more about his medical condition and how he came to be wandering in downtown Guelph.”

Anyone with information that could assist the Guelph Humane Society is asked to call 519-824-3091.

The Guelph Humane Society wants to remind the community that if someone  is unable to care for an animal they should call GHS at 519-824-3091 or email

The humane society is here to help individuals or families that can no longer care for their pets for any reason.
