The Shelter:

The Society provides a desperately needed haven for injured and abandoned animals in the city of Toronto. In any given year, approximately 8,549 animals pass through the shelter, which is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The injured receive veterinary care; abandoned animals are given a safe haven. Wildlife are cared for until they recover and/or they are old enough to be released to their natural habitat. Immature and/or injured animals are placed in foster care until they are old enough and strong enough to be placed for adoption.
