and tropical birds are waiting to be adopted. "The shelter is full to
capacity. There are literally hundreds of animals to choose from," says Ian

has not been a time in the history of the Toronto Humane Society where we have
had as many pets as we do now available for adoption," said society President

homes of their own.
