Toronto Humane Society Jam-Packed

    THS urgently needs 300 adopters!

    TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Despite a successful Adoption Blitz in mid-May,
the Toronto Humane Society is once again filled nearly to capacity. As scores
of kittens move from the nursery to the regular adoption rooms daily, the
pressure on the shelter mounts by the hour. Cat modules spill out into the
hallways and cats are bunking down in offices and meeting rooms. In addition
to nearly 500 cats in the shelter, we are overflowing with kittens, puppies
and dogs as well: a recent raid on a puppy mill, where we rescued 30 dogs, has
pushed our dog population to more than 100. The only way to relieve the
pressure on the shelter is to find homes for 300 animals this weekend. Or
earlier. like RIGHT NOW!
    To make that happen we are staging an emergency adopt-a-thon, starting
Friday, June 20 and wrapping up Sunday, June 22. We'll bring in extra staff
and do everything humanly possible to find 300 new families for some of the
animals in our care.
    Adoption hours are 11 am to 7 pm, seven days a week.
