Your Gift Goes Beyond Borders

August 30, 2018
Dear Friend of the Toronto Humane Society
I am writing you today because the Toronto Humane Society is determined to provide as many animals with care and compassion as we can; no matter where they are or where they come from. That’s why the Toronto Humane Society has formed partnerships and alliances with animal rescue organizations across Canada and around the world. Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to coordinate the rescue of desperate animals from South Carolina to Texas, Quebec to Manitoba, and from Puerto Rico to China. Earlier this year, we, along with our partner organizations, helped rescue 10 dogs from China’s meat trade. According to AnimalsAsia, an animal rights group based in Hong Kong, “it’s estimated that in China alone, 10 million dogs and 4 million cats are slaughtered for the meat trade each year”. These animals are often stolen from their families, or bred into a place where they will eventually be butchered, some even skinned alive. With your help, we can save more animals from such cruel practices. Your gift today will help us rescue even more animals, saving countless lives. Your donation today of $10, $50 or even $500 will go directly toward rescuing animals from desperate situations, no matter where they are in the world. Your gift will go the distance! Donate Now Our Rescue Transport Program coordinates the transfer of animals from wherever they need help. Our team has travelled across Ontario and Quebec, rescuing cats from desperate hoarding situations. We have coordinated the rescue of dogs from overcrowded shelters throughout the US to prevent unnecessary euthanasia. We have rescued animals from Florida to Texas who’ve suddenly become homeless after natural disasters. And, last spring, our team boarded a small plane and travelled to Ontario’s far North to provide care to animals in remote fly-in communities and brought some of them back here to find homes. This is all thanks to you and your generosity. With your continued support, our Rescue Transport Program can push the boundaries of animal care. Thank you so much for your continued support of the Toronto Humane Society. Dr. Jacques Messier Chief Executive Officer Toronto Humane Society Donate Now
