As you may or may not recall, a few months ago the Newmarket/North York OSPCA had an outbreak of Ringworm and rather than treating it, decided to euthanize all the animals (infected or not) in the shelter. The OSPCA Branch closed its doors to adoptions and volunteers. Officials would not release any of the animals regardless of where the offers were coming from.
Today I received this email and thought I would pass it along ...
I was just advised of the information below. If you recall, some of the vets in Newmarket Aurora stepped up to help some of the OSPCA cats and dogs which were scheduled for euthanasia due to ring worm. There are 15 animals now avaiable at one of the vets for adoption (no charge, as I understand), 12 are cats. Can you please forward onto any cat rescue groups for their consideration. This vet stepped up and it would be nice to see the community come together to get these animals adopted out without the vet having to hold on to them for a very long time. The cats and dogs can be viewed at:
