Toronto Is In Crisis

As Toronto residents grapple with the harsh consequences of cost of living increases, many families are being torn apart. They are being forced to make heartbreaking decisions, leaving beloved pets without homes. 

Every day, Toronto Humane Society receives a growing number of requests for help from families just trying to keep up and do their best. We witness families who are forced to surrender their pets because they are unable to access the necessary care, long lines forming to access pet food at our Pet Food Bank and Community Day events, and a growing waitlist of families requesting to access our public programs such as our Public Veterinary Services, Urgent Care Program, and Pet Parent Support Network. 

As the demand for our public services grows, we recognize the economic challenges many of our supporters face. Now, more than ever, we need the generosity of donors at every level—whether it’s monthly contributions, mid-level gifts, or significant high-level donations. Every contribution makes a difference in our ability to serve our community. 

Toronto Humane Society is determined to remain steadfast in our mission to Improve the Lives of Animals – but we can’t do it without you. Your gift today will provide essential pet care services to those stuck in an impossible situation and ensure that families won’t have to make the heart-wrenching decision to give up their beloved pets during this time of crisis. 

Build a new future for pets and their families with your gift. Keep families whole and create a better future for your community.
