Pet abandonment is a real problem.

Over 180,000 animals are surrendered to Canadian shelters each year, many by owners who were unprepared to care for a pet.

Thankfully the Toronto Humane Society is one of the exceptions — more than 90% of the animals surrendered into our care go on to be adopted. This is unfortunately not the case in all shelters across Canada.

Help us spread the word — pet ownership is for life.
