Today, volunteers got a letter from Bob Hambley, president of the Toronto Humane Society, concerning yesterday's notice about closing the kitten nursery.
Helping abandoned kittens is an important part of operations at the shelter. We have helped thousands of kittens survive and adopted them into new loving forever homes.
Many new policies and procedures have been recommended by the experts at UC Davis. We are excited to have the opportunity to work with them and apply their expertise to the running of our shelter.
No final decisions have been made regarding the in-house kitten nursery, staff have made no such recommendation to the Board.
All recommendations from UC Davis, including the in-house kitten nursery, in the THS revitalization plan are able to be reviewed at the discretion of the new Board of Directors which is set to be elected on May 30th.
Personally, I strongly support the continuation of the kitten nursery program including the return to 24 hour operations at the shelter.
There will be many changes at the THS that will positively benefit the animals and we are pleased you are part of this process as we move forward together.
Toronto Humane Society
Thank you very much Mr. Hambley for reconsidering this issue.
