We are very proud to announce the Keeping Pets and People Together Program, in which we will work alongside the community to assist in reducing the number of animals surrendered to shelters. Our goal is to help members of our community address behavioural issues in the home through outreach and education to prevent the need to surrender pets to shelters.

We would like to introduce Kelsey MacNeil, who will be developing this program and providing behavioral support to the PGHS community.

Kelsey is a Certified Feline Behavior Consultant and Registered Veterinary Technologist. After working in veterinary medicine, she found that cats and their behavior are rarely understood by those who love them. This lack of understanding leads to the breakdown of the human-animal bond, frustration and often leads to the surrender of much loved pets.

Kelsey plans to share her knowledge of feline behaviour to help owners and their cats develop strong, compassionate bonds. By understanding the motivations behind a cat's behaviour we can solve the problems many owners face and struggle to deal with. From managing inappropriate urination to anxiety, Kelsey can provide advice to our adopters and fosters. She is also very comfortable with dog behavior and training, using positive reinforcement and science-based methods. She will be able to assist our patrons with socialization, training and managing problem behaviors.

At this time we are able to assist those considering surrendering their pet, as well as any animals who have been adopted from PGHS in the past. We hope to be able to expand this program to help even more animals in the future.

Wellness and Spay and Neuter Clinics on Remote and Indigenous Communities

Keeping Pets & people together logo.png

The Prince George Humane Society currently provides the following support services: On-site Wellness Clinics, Humane Education Programs, Behaviour Management Consulting, and Bite Prevention for remote and Indigenous communities. These services are offered within the communities, or at our Adoption and Humane Education Centre. These programs are performed in conjunction with local veterinarians and animal care technicians.

These clinics offer wellness exams, vaccinations, minor treatments, behaviour consulting, and counselling on the benefits of spay/neuter, and when needed referrals are made to appropriate veterinary clinics for additional or follow-up treatments. The program also offers monthly transportation arrangements of pets from remote and Indigenous communities without access to adequate veterinary care to veterinary clinics in Prince George and surrounding communities.

This program promotes animal welfare by allowing owners to ensure pets are provided with the necessary vet treatment rather than surrendered to a animal shelter. Vaccinations and routine care ensure pets do not create disease outbreaks in communities and encourage increased community support for general animal welfare.
