The Grey Bruce Animal Shelter (GBAS) is an independent, all volunteer, Registered Charity, reaching out to help animals who cannot help themselves. Serving the communities of Grey and Bruce, we are located just south of Owen Sound. At Rockford we are east on Grey Road 18 (the Derry Line) and 3km south on Concession 8.
Do you own a short-coated dog with a boxy snout? Is it brindle, white, brown or red? Then you may very well own an "Ontario pit bull". This is a must read article about some confusing and dangerous ideas that have surfaced since the Breed Specific Law came into law...>
Say goodbye to your unsightly litterbox. Order a Litterhouse and tell them you heard about it through the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter - you'll be thrilled with the product and we'll get a donation.

We want to shout out a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Nancy for once again organizing an outstanding event for the Shelter.
The second annual Snowshoe/Ski/Skijor day on Jan. 27th at Cornerstone Golf Club, Tobermory, was an amazing success with lots of participants and their wonderful dogs. Nancy blazed the trail for one and all to enjoy. Not only did everyone have a great time, but they raised a serious amount of money for the shelter which we appreciate so much.
Our sincere thanks go out to Nancy McAfee, her family and friends, all of the participants and their pledgers as well as sponsors - Cornerstone Golf Club, The Ancient Cedars Cafe, McAfee & Sons Contracting, Peacock's Foodland, Ellen's Pet Supplies and V&S Stedmans.
We're sending out a BIG BIRTHDAY THANK YOU to David and Emily of Port Elgin who just celebrated their 8th and 5th Birthday.

They came to visit us today to visit with the pets and give us their donations for our adorable pets.
Little Nipper loved the attention and can't wait to sample some of the treats!!! They not only brought us goodies but proudly handed us an amazing $285.00 in donations. THANK YOU David, Emily, your friends and family members - we appreciate it so much.
We're sending a Big Thank You to Cassidy from Keppel/Sarawak School!

She also brought us blankets, Canadian Tire Money and a cash donation.
