TORONTO, Jan. 16 /CNW/ - The Toronto Humane Society has opened its
shelter to assist animals in need during this blackout.
With the extremely cold temperatures pets are at risk. Inside your
residence dogs and cats should be wrapped in blankets or jackets to maintain
their body heat. We recommend that if your home/apartment is getting too cold
for you to be comfortable your pet will be cold as well.
Tropical birds and reptiles that require warmer climates are especially
at risk. You should seek alternative accommodation to keep those animals safe.
If you are able to go spend the day with a friend or family bring your
pet with you. If you have no place to go the Toronto Humane Society shelter at
11 River St. will provide shelter for you and your animal (as well as food and
water for the animals) until power/heat is restored.
Please call our hotline at 426-392-2273 ext. 2149 for more information.
