Every dog is provided with a safe and warm kennel at the Toronto Humane Society. A Comfort Package gift will provide them with a cozy blanket, bed and toys to keep them happy and comfortable while they rest in their kennel between walk breaks and playgroup sessions.
Hundreds of puppies are born under the care of the Toronto Humane Society every year. A Set-for-Life Puppy Kit will provide them with puppy food (after nursing) and vaccinations to protect them against diseases such as rabies and parvo.
Many dogs come to the Toronto Humane Society because their owners are having trouble managing certain behaviours. A Back-to-School gift will help our Behaviour Team work with every dog individually and provide them with a personalized training program so they can better cope with the things that make them nervous, afraid or possessive.
Most of the dogs receive three meals a day while at the shelter, plus kongs and other treat toys to keep them busy while they’re in their kennel. The Seven Days of Supper gift provides six dogs their supper for a week.
Every dog receives an initial health check when they arrive at the shelter to ensure they are healthy. An Intake Health Check gift will provide an examination of the eyes, ears and teeth. Older dogs will have bloodwork tests, and many dogs require further examination including skin tests and x-rays.
Not all dogs spend their entire stay in the shelter. Many need to go to a foster home before they are made available for adoption. Dogs stay in foster homes for many reasons – if they are recovering from an injury or illness, or if they are following a training plan for behavioural issues. A Sleepover Kit will provide everything a dog needs when they go to a foster home – a bed, food, collar, leash and toys.
