THS receives five-year accreditation from CVO

TORONTO, June 10, 2011 /CNW/ - The Toronto Humane Society (THS) is pleased to announce it has received its five-year accreditation from The College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO).

Over the past year the shelter has passed four inspections - both spontaneous and scheduled - which have led to the official CVO approval. These assessments included spot inspections as well as medical peer and record reviews.

Previously, the shelter operated on a one-year temporary accreditation.

"We are very pleased to have this accreditation in place and are happy to hear that The College of Veterinarians of Ontario approves of the way we run our veterinary clinic," says Interim CEO Christopher Barry. "Our veterinarian staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional. They exhibit the utmost respect and compassionate care for our animals."

The THS provides high quality care to homeless and surrendered animals and helps them find forever homes as quickly as possible. Its mission is to provide expert veterinary care - from emergency support to chronic and palliative care.

About THS:
THS is an independently operated humane society that services the needs of Toronto. Injured and/or ill animals receive veterinary care and abandoned animals are given safe shelter. Immature and/or injured animals are placed in foster care until they are old enough and strong enough to be placed for adoption. The THS receives no government funding and is operated entirely through private donors and sponsors.
