An Urgent Plea

An Urgent Plea

March 18, 2020

Dear Toronto Humane Society Supporters,

I am writing you today with an urgent plea. During this time of great uncertainty, we are asking for your help. You may have seen that we have had to close our facility to the public as part of an effort to flatten the curve and reduce the
spread of COVID-19.

This closure is going to hurt us as an organization, there’s no question. I know that everyone is affected by what’s happening right now, but for those of you who are able to, we’re asking for your help. Even though the building is closed
to the public, we will continue to foster, house, feed and provide medical attention to the animals in our care. We will continue to have dedicated staff working ‘round the clock to keep these animals happy and healthy.

In addition to running costs, we have had to stop our public services. Because we have had to stop our public services, we are also losing the revenue that was associated with those programs. We know the community is going to continue to need our support, especially through these times of uncertainty. This is why we are doing what we can to keep our Pet Food Bank open to those who need it, we are reviewing each emergent case to determine if we are able to assist and we are continuing to find the animals in our care loving homes. To do this, we need you. With your gift today, you can help us continue to provide the care needed by these animals that have no one else to turn to.

Your gift today will not only help us to keep animals safe and cared for, but will help us restart all of our Community Services once the COVID-19 situation has passed. A donation of $20, $50 or even $500 will go directly to animal medical
care, their daily food and shelter, and of course, a place to call home.

Thank you very much for reading our plea and your continued support of Toronto Humane Society, especially in dire times like these.
