If you are looking to adopt or know ANYONE who might be...

Dear Activist,

Please note the dire need of 188 animals (44 rats, 18 rabbits and 126
cats) at the Toronto Humane Society. Please cross post and let friends
and family know that these animals will all die if we don't act now.

Please contact Daria at dariaths@yahoo.com
or Ruthann rdrummond@torontohumanesociety.com

Below is the message from THS employee, Ruthann.


Hi Everyone,

The Toronto Humane Society will be closing its doors from April 12th
until June 1st, 2010. During this time, NO animals will be able to
remain in the building. That means we only have 10 days to find all
the animals at THS homes. This includes 44 rats, 18 rabbits, and 126
cats. If ever there was a time to adopt - now is that time! These
animals need your help, and they need it now!

Please visit us 7 days a week, between 12-6pm to meet your new best
friend. If you'd like to contact me, please e-mail my work account
(rdrummond@torontohumanesociety.com), but understand that I intend to
be very busy over the next 10 days, and may not be able to answer you

Thanks in advance for your support!

Free Lecture at UofT on Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Alternatives to Animal Experimentation in Education and the Health Sciences

Date: Tuesday, November 24, 2009
Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE), Room 4422
Street: 252 Bloor Street West (right above St. George Subway station)
City/Town: Toronto, ON

A free lecture by Olivier Berreville of InterNICHE, the International Network for Humane Education (http://www.interniche.org). Mr. Berreville will be discussing arguments against the use of live animals for biomedical research and for purposes of education. InterNICHE "promotes progressive humane education in the biological sciences, veterinary and human medicine; and supports the replacement of animal experiments by working with teachers to introduce alternatives, and with students to support freedom of conscience".

"We define alternatives as educational aids or teaching approaches that replace harmful animal use or complement existing humane education. Humane education in the life sciences is: progressive education for which the teaching objectives are met using humane, alternative methods where animals are free from harm and students have freedom of conscience education which encourages holistic perception and a respect for life." InterNICHE

As the Canadian representative for InterNICHE, Olivier Berreville has spoken to university groups at Brock, Dalhousie, Ottawa and Trent Universities. Mr. Berreville is currently completing his PhD in Biology at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia.

We will have a Q & A immediately following the lecture and encourage individuals to engage in what is sure to be lively dialogue. The lecture itself is scheduled to run from approximately 7 pm to 8 pm.

Hosted by:

- Campaign to Stop Animal Experimentation at University of Toronto
- Panacea Eco Store on Bloor
- ARK II (Animal Rights Kollective II)
- Students Against Climate Change

Everyone is welcome. Please join us.

Thank you.
