Toronto Humane Society animals need supplies

A few urgently needed supplies as suggested by people who are presently volunteering at the THS:

- blankets, towels
- rodent cages

If you've got the stuff, or anything else you think might come in handy, and can part with it, please drop off items at the 11 River location.

For those who wish to continue supporting the THS animals (as opposed to the board and management) with donations, two options are suggested by people close to the THS reform group:

1. Donate items to the shelter, such as food, blankets and towels.

2. The OSPCA has set up a separate donation fund for the THS to be used for animal care NOT other issues such as legal defence for the board.
Call 1-888-668-7722 and go to extension 322. Phones are a bit busy right now, so please leave a message if you must. If you are a current monthly donor, you should be able to change your billing to go to this fund, at least until new administration is in place.

I've been lurking about your blog for some time. Wow, the Toronto Humane Society is making news down in California.

I got this comment on my blog and confirmed the telephone donation information with the OSPCA.

Thanks for that. I'll post it in the main body.

Can you try and get the donation information published in the Globe or other newspaper? Maybe Anne Rohmer would make mention of it on her show since she is such a proponent of THS. I am donating to charities for Xmas presents and was trying to think about how to get around the whole THS thing ... blocking them for using the money for their legal defence fund. This solves that problem handily. Goldhawk Live did a show the other night on THS and people losing faith in the establishment. Interesting. I sincerely hope that people will still donate to the animals..they have already been betrayed twice...once by whoever surrendered or abandoned them and twice by the THS. Let's not make it three times....any little bit helps. I am so glad that you are enjoying yourself. These are memories that will last a lifetime. I love the horses, there is nothing like the smell of hay, carrots and manure......and velvet noses....
