"Killing Them With Kindness"

I mentioned in my other thread, "Help Finding a Rescue", that I had been hearing about some dysfunction at the Toronto Humane Society. This article in the Globe and Mail touches on some of the issues I've been hearing about.

This is part 1 of a 3-part investigation. Some of what was discovered is appalling (and unfortunately I've heard of more than one person adopting a sick dog from the THS).

I just thought I would share this, because now I feel justified in my concerns regarding the THS. Although of course we should all keep in mind that no journalistic endeavour is completely unbiased! (And there are "two sides to every story".)

Here's the link:

Sorry guys, I JUST realized that somebody has already posted this article. I would delete this thread but I'm not sure I have the ability to do so!
