Toronto Animal Services - Highlights
Your Donations gave Cini her much needed surgery
Cini, a Labradoodle, was only a young puppy of 3-months when she was purchased from a popular classified ads website. Her new owner had her for only a few days when Cini got hurt. Cini's back leg was badly broken and her owner was not able to provide her with the proper medical care.
Cini was surrendered to Toronto Animal Services and was immediately given the much needed medical attention and pain management. After some expensive surgery she is now a very healthy and happy dog.
Unfortunately Cini's story is all too common. Without your donations, Toronto Animal Services would not be able to help animals like Cini. Even a small donation can make a big difference!
Your donations matter!
Toronto Animal Services receives much needed donations every year. Your generous donations came to a grand total of $203,000 in 2011! Here's a breakdown of how the funds were used:
- $3,000 was used to purchase medical supplies for the feral cat spay/neuter clinic.
- $50,000 was used to fund specialized veterinary medical services beyond what is normally available within Toronto Animal Services' resources and helped us to save lives!
- $112,000 was used to build and integrate a new spay/neuter clinic into our north region animal shelter at 1300 Sheppard Ave. W. This spay/neuter clinic location will soon be open to the public!
- $38,000 was used to purchase medical equipment and specialized fixtures for all of our locations so that we can continue to provide the best possible quality care for the animals
We also want to thank Hill's Science Diet for the yearly donation of dog and cat food that supports and sponsors our dog and cat adoption program. Every year, Hill's Science Diet provides Toronto Animal Services with the food we need to feed the dogs and cats in all four regional animal shelters. They also provide us with a 5 lb. bag of dog food and 3 lb. bag of cat food to send home with every new dog or cat owner so that the pet can transition smoothly into his/her new home.
It's all about the animals! 100% of your donation to Animal Services is used to directly benefit the animals in our care or for spay/neuter programs. No portion of your donation is used to cover administration costs and tax receipts are available for donations over $20.00.
