Letter to the editor, National Post –RE: Humane Society delays move to accept strays directly
Letter to the Editor
The Ontario SPCA would like to take this opportunity to correct some misinformation printed in the article, “Humane Society delays move to accept strays directly”. The editorial incorrectly identifies that the Toronto Humane Society (THS) was once legally allowed to accept strays prior to the Ontario SPCA’s 2009 investigation. This is incorrect. When Toronto Animal Services (TAS) was formed in 1991, THS lost the animal control contract. At this point, they were no longer legally able to accept strays however, they continued to do so regardless of the law, until 2009. This illegal service was stopped when the Ontario SPCA entered the THS facility and continued to cease when new management was appointed.
