Great reading about Toronto Humane Society!

Save The Toronto Humane Society has links to some great information, read it here.

WARNING: Graphic descriptions of animal suffering and death.

If you want to make a difference in the GTA's biggest animal shelter, get a membership in the Toronto Humane Society. Join the call to action of the Association to Reform the Toronto Humane Society.

Do the right thing. For the animals.

Update: Articles about THS finances. Read Kate Hammer's article in The Globe and Mail, and Daniel Dale's article in the Toronto Star.

Enquiring minds want to know...what interest rate is being paid on the almost half a million dollars of donors' money sitting in Pellegrino Capone's trust account from (probably) December/09 until now, which won't be paid back to THS until March 5, 2010? Was there no other lawyer in the office who could sign the cheque to reimburse the monies to THS while Mr. Capone was out of the country?

This makes almost a million dollars that the THS board has handed over to lawyers in 2009. This, in an organization that lost $3M in revenues from 2007 to 2008 and was running a deficit at the end of 2008, according to its financial statements.
