There is a donation drive happening for the animals at Toronto Humane Society. The animals left behind in this whole mess are in need of supplies. Please consider giving anything you can spare to the helpless animals.
Between the hours of 7am and 7pm on Saturday December 12th and Sunday December 13th please drop off donations at the Toronto Humane Society. The address is 11 River Street, which is at the corner of Queen Street East and River St.
Here is a list of supplies that the animals in the shelter desperately need.
For the Dogs
Used and new blankets. Please avoid down filled comforters as some of the dogs like to destroy their blankets. Feathers make a huge mess.
Dog beds of all sizes.
Good quality leashes and collars of all sizes. Please make sure they are strong.
We wouldn’t want any dogs to break away from their collars while on a walk.
Plastic basket muzzles of all sizes. Pit Bulls need to wear them on their walks.
Plastic bags for the dog walkers.
Strong dog toys of various sizes. Kongs, and squeaky toys for the cages, frisbees and large rubber balls for the dog parks.
Grooming supplies. Hair clippers, nail clippers, brushes, shampoo,
For the Cats
Plastic cat toys. Plastic ones are better than fabric ones as the plastic ones can be disinfected properly. The cats and kittens have been living in small cages with almost no stimulation. Some of these cats have been at the shelter for years and would appreciate a toy.
Towels and small cat beds for their cages.
Powdered KMR (Kitten Meal Replacement).
Large plastic litter boxes with no hood.
Grooming supplies like nail clippers and brushes.
Metal Bowls (no plastic please)
For the little guys in the small domestics department
Hideaways and Houses
Water bottles that clip to the cage
Cages of all sizes
Bedding and Litter
Anything else you think that a rabbit, rat, mouse, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil, or chinchilla would enjoy.
One Bark at a Time posted an article stating that adopting animals from from the THS's Victoria Park centre could alleviate some of the problems of severe overcrowding at the 11 River Street location.
The animal care staff at THS wants to assure the public that the animals at the Victoria Park adoption centre are highly adoptable and ready to be taken into the care of pet lovers.
