Toronto Humane Society’s troubles are behind it; shelter to reopen June 28

TORONTO – The troubled Toronto Humane Society says it has put its difficult times in the past and plans to reopen its animal shelter in two weeks.

New society president Michael Downey made the announcement at a news conference this morning.

Downey says the decision to reopen June 28 was made at a meeting of the new board last week.

He says he’s confident people in Toronto will resume volunteering and using its services.

A raid last November by the OSPCA led to animal cruelty charges against four senior society managers and members of the board of directors.

Several new charges laid last month related to the alleged condition of animals found in the shelter last fall.
