How public can donate to help THS animals

Public Can Support Vulnerable Animals at

The Toronto Humane Society by Contributing Funds or Pet Supplies

The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) and the staff at the Toronto Humane Society (THS) would like the public to know there are ways to directly help the various animals in need at the THS.

A bank account has been set up through TD Canada Trust to accept contributions, every penny of which will be invested to care for over 900 animals in need at the Toronto Humane Society (THS). This fund is not to be used in any way for legal fees or other administration costs not directly associated with helping animals.

Those wishing to contribute are invited to transfer funds to the following account at any bank:

TD Canada Trust account number: 5224209       

Transit number: 0307

You may also donate by credit card or cheque

      To donate using your credit card phone, phone the OSPCA at 1-888-668-7722 extension 322 or 323. Tell them you wish your donation to be used for THS animal care.

      To donate by cheque please make it payable to OSPCA and write on the memo line “THS animal care”. Ensure your name and return address are included to help prepare your donor tax receipt.

Mail your cheque to:


16586 Woodbine Avenue,

R.R. #3,

Newmarket, Ontario L3Y 4W1

“Obviously, this has been a very difficult time for animal lovers with the ongoing investigation into alleged animal cruelty and mismanagement by senior staff and board members at the THS. But the community has come together to support the animals in need at the THS shelter, and this support is truly wonderful and inspiring," said Kevin Strooband, lead investigator for the OSPCA. "If the public wishes to help the animals at the THS, we will make sure their contributions of money or supplies will directly help animals in need at this shelter."

A wide range of pet supplies would also be gratefully accepted and appreciated from the public.

Supplies that are especially needed are:


           Timothy hay

           Aspen shavings

           Food for less active rabbits

          "Rodent Diet"

        Six-foot-long nylon or leather leashes

           "Yesterdays News" cat litter

         Canary-finch bird food

           "Cover Cat" non-clumping cat litter

         Toys for cats and dogs


These items can be dropped off at the THS animal shelter at 11 River Street.

For more information about how you can help the animals at the THS, please call 1-888-668-7722.
