Hey MDBrs! Our friends at Humane Society International Canada (HSI Canada) are in great need of toys and blankets for the pups in the Emergency Shelter. On April 1, 2o14, HSI Canada assisted the Quebec Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ) rescue 59 dogs from a hoarding situation in the Abitibi-Temiscamingue region.
In a press release, Ewa Demianowicz, campaign manager for HSI/Canada, said: “It is always distressing to see animals subjected to this kind of neglect. The dogs, mostly medium-size mixed breeds and some puppies, appeared malnourished and dehydrated. Their fur is matted and dirty, and when we arrived on site the dogs were visibly scared and anxious.”
The dogs are in need of blankets, resistant chew toys, large carabiners for dog cages, or gift certificates from Wal-Mart, Dollarama, Canadian Tire, Rona or Home Depot. These are stores where they can buy a lots of things for the animals.
Donations can be brought to the HSI office located at 460 Ste-Catherine West, suite 506, Montreal Qc. They can receive the toys Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.
