It's about effin time

Thank you OSPCA.

OSPCA to investigate Toronto Humane Society

“We are extremely concerned to learn that an Affiliate is alleged to be conducting business in this manner. We will be consulting immediately with all stakeholders to ensure that conditions under which animals are kept at the Toronto Humane Society are in compliance with the policies and bylaws of the Ontario SPCA as is required by Affiliated Societies.”

And also, to anyone who has had any dealings with the THS ...

Please contact khammer@globeandmail.com if you have any credible information of evidentiary value of wrong doing or malfeasance at THS.

I emailed her before I read this posting. I spoke with her for a while and gave her some examples of the pathetic conditions at the THS in the kitten nursery. She seemed particularly shocked by the fact that I had to wash kittens in dish soap this past Saturday because there was no animal shampoo.

But I don't even think she realized that I could get in trouble for doing that because the THS wants the volunteer feeders to just feed and not do anything else.
