Adopt Me: Barb will need a patient home (adopted)

She needs someone who is willing to give her time to get settled, comfortable and most importantly, to love and trust you

CollingwoodToday, in partnership with the Georgian Triangle Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi there, my name is Barb. I am a gorgeous four-year-old kitty who has come to the GTHS to find my forever home after being found out in the cold as a stray.

You’ll likely find me in a kennel, rather than loose in the main adoption room. Why? I’m what’s known as a spirit cat – a cat who is very nervous and shy. I tend to hide away if I’m loose in the room, so my human friends here at the shelter set me up in a cozy spot where potential future families can get to know me.

Once I am in a home, my new family will have to give me LOTS of time and patience to let me settle in, but I just know they’ll be so very happy they gave a special kitty like me a chance!

I truly am such a sweetheart! When you go slow and are patient, you can hear me purr and lean into you for more scratches. I just need that right person to come along who is willing to give me the time I need to get settled, get comfortable and most importantly, to love and trust you.

Please make a trip over to the shelter and talk with our Adoption Counselors to learn more about me. The GTHS is open for adoptions from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m., every single day of the week and they would be happy to introduce you to me! I can't wait to meet you and look forward to starting my new life with my new family soon.

xoxo Barb
