They will be opening their doors in June, after taking a hiatus to clean and upgrade the place.
Four senior staff members and two other staff, including president Tim Trow and head veterinarian Dr. Steve Sheridan (wonder where he'll be practising in the future), blackened the name of the shelter and now face multiple charges including animal cruelty (much better suited to work for the government).
These sick individuals will be replaced ... and hopefully they will suffer. I know they will never suffer the way the animals in their care did--but I can dream!
The investigation was started due to an animal care worker who was fired from the shelter back in 2006. Marcie Laking started a protest group and was successful in drawing attention to the conditions at the shelter when the group held two demonstrations in 2008, in front of the shelter on River Street, Toronto.
Kudos to you Marcie and let it never be said one person can't make a difference!!
