The Etobicoke Humane Society (EHS) will host an open house next month to help its furry friends find families.
On Saturday, Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., EHS will open it doors at 1500 Royal York Rd., offering a reduced adoption fee of $99 to encourage adoption of EHS shelter animals.
“There are so many homeless animals, and for us to continue to help them, we need to make room for more,” said Jennifer Grado, EHS volunteer and adoption coordinator. “We are urging the public to open their hearts and homes to a new pet. They too need a home and a warm bed to curl up on.”
Although the EHS shelter houses only cats, Lorraine Houston of Speaking of Dogs – a Toronto-based dog rescue organization that works with EHS – will be on hand with information about dog adoption. There will also be program information, free literature and many volunteers to speak with, including EHS’s volunteer cruelty investigators.
