About The Toronto Humane Society

The Toronto Humane Society's mission statement is to promote the humane care and protection of all animals and to prevent cruelty and suffering.

The Society has a modern facility that houses its shelter, clinic and administrative offices. Technological advances such as computerized record-keeping, microchip pet identification and rapid-fire telecommunications systems have enhanced the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of shelter operations. The Society operates as an independent not-for-profit organization supported by donors and members. The THS does not receive government funding.

The Shelter:

The Society provides a desperately needed adoption facility and haven for injured and abandoned animals in the City of Toronto. The injured receive veterinary care, and abandoned animals are given a safe haven 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Immature and/or injured animals are placed in foster care until they are old enough and strong enough to be placed for adoption.
