Broken spirits

Adoption blitz launched ahead of Monday’s THS closing.

THS officials maintain there are no plans for large-scale euthanasia, and “adoptable” animals that remain after the Monday deadline will be transferred to Victoria Park or other local shelters.

“I don’t believe any euthanasias are planned at this time, but that is a veterinary decision that will be made if they feel it is the right choice,” spokesman Ian McConachie said today, noting he is “confident” many of the animals will be adopted over the weekend.

Volunteer cat worker Heather Brown said a number of the remaining cats have special needs that cannot be addressed at the smaller Victoria Park facility, so she is hoping they will find homes in the next couple of days. Some of the cats have been living at River Street for up to three years, she noted.

“There is not one cat there that is not adoptable,” Ms. Brown said. “The ones left, they’re so sweet, and you can kind of see their broken spirit a little bit. It’s almost like dodgeball, when you never want to be the last one picked for a team.”
