Toronto Humane Society officials arrested for cruelty to animals

Kate Hammer

Toronto — Globe and Mail Update

Police have arrested the Toronto Humane Society's president, chief veterinarian and three other senior staff members and charged them with animal cruelty, six months after a Globe and Mail investigation revealed widespread troubles at the shelter.

At the same time, the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals executed a search warrant at the shelter's River Street facility late Thursday afternoon.

Humane Society president Tim Trow is facing Criminal Code charges of animal cruelty, conspiracy to commit cruelty to animals and obstruction of a peace officer. If convicted, Mr. Trow faces a maximum penalty of $2,000 and six months in jail for the animal cruelty charges, and two years in jail for the obstruction charges.

Head veterinarian Steve Sheridan, shelter manager Gary McCracken, manager Romeo Bernadino and shelter supervisor Andy Bechtel have also been arrested and face animal cruelty charges under the criminal code.

All of the above, as well as the Society's board of directors, are also being charged with five counts of animal cruelty, a provincial offence under the Ontario SPCA Act (as opposed to criminal charges).

Adoptive/Foster homes needed:

Without foster homes this rescue cannot run, or continue to save animals. Unfortunately with that we are having to turn people down left right and center because of our simple lack of place for the animals. To give an idea of how many requests we get, here is a list of requests from Nov 16th - 23rd. If you think you can help, or know anyone who can, please contact us:

2 Male Dumbo Rats: Brothers from same litter; Dumbo & Bambi. About 5 months old. Have been sneezing, owner unable to give them medication for it because she is too allergic. Therefore she is also unable to keep them because of her allergies, and with the windows now closed it has become unbearable. Need to be fostered / adopted together as they are bonded.
*Cannot be fostered with other rats, rabbits, or small animasl in the house (Not including cats/dogs).

Mother cat: This sweetheart was abandoned, and left to fend for herself on the streets. She obviously had a home at some point in her life because she is clearly trying to make up for all the months of being attention starved. Of course; she had a litter and like always.. all the kittens got placed and now she is left behind. Unlike her kittens that were place, she has not had the chance as a kitten to find a good home, and now as an adult no one is interested in her. She is about 1 years old.

Two kittens born outside: We have been emailed last week to taken in two outdoor kittens that were born under someone balcony. Winter is coming and outdoors is no place to be for a little defenseless kitten (burr!). Sex unknown, color sliver with white belly's, ages 8 weeks. 
- Foster home found.

Three kittens rescued from outside: 7 Kittens rescued in September, all placed but three, now 3-4 months old.

Dog: No information given other than its name being Matis. More information to come soon (hopefully).

Feral cats rescued, now multiplying: One year a mother cat roamed into the woman's garage, she fed her, she had a litter of three kittens, 2 were able to be place. Went to bring her to be spayed, mother was pregnant again, had her second litter; 3 more kittens. Now has 4 cats and three kittens in her garage ( 2 cats = 2 years old, 1 cat = 1.5 year old 1 cat = 1 year old). They are all black.

Post Adoption Update: Honey (now Molly)


Honey is enjoying her new life in NY and daily stroller rides in her pink stroller. What a luck spoiled girl! She has come so far when we first got her and a lost little kitten found in the middle of a road. This is one happy tail.

Nemo (now Ron) - All grown up!

Ron (previously Nemo) was rescued from a pet store closing down as a itty bitty baby. He was one of three rescued babies, and one of two survivors. Unfortunately at the pet store they were exposed to rat poisening.. one of them did not survive despite our best efforts and intesive care. (See his baby picture, when we first got him; here)

Sponsor an Animal: Noah the puppy - Update

Noah is doing better and is no longer vomiting. Today was his last day of anti-nausea/vomiting medication (Cerenia). So hopefully tomorrow without the medication he will still not vomit. He is however still not eating, so we are having to force feed him. He is also still having diharrea, but no longer has blood in his stools.He is still on IV antibotics (Cefazolin), and will most likely need a plasma transfusion. We are still not out of the woods yets, but his chance of survival are definately looking up!

Also today we received 150$ donation for Krisitn Miniorgan, and 45$ from Catherine Rose. THANK YOU! His estimated bill is 1000$, if everything goes well. So we are close to 1/4 of the way there!

To contribute please go to:

Wish List Donations!

We would like to say and huge THANK YOU to Kristin Miniorgan and her family for their generous donation! They went on a shopping spree today for the rescue and bought us a whole bunch of items from our 'Wish List'.. we can not thank them enough! This will make a lot tails wag, especially in light of Christmas coming soon. Lets not forget the homeless shelter pets at this time of the year. Not only did they donate wish list items but they also donated 150$ towards saving Noah the puppy. Oh and if that is not enough their daughters Grace and Sage both chose to donate to the rescue on their birthdays instead of receiving presents! (See Graces video here)

11-11 on CBC: Gracies Gift

Grace decided to donate towards Frankie's Surgery instead of receving presents on her 7th birthday. Grace explain she wanted to do this because she already has everything she needs. Grace was able to raise 300$ for the rescue at her birthday party and proudly presented it to Frankie herself. Eleven Eleven Animal Rescue was astonished when we first hear the news from her mother. It takes a very special girl to choose to do this, as most kids are just so focused on what they want and not how they can help others. CBC news heard the story and were there with us when Grace met Frankie. Grace is an exceptional girl and we cannot even begin to thank her enough for what she has done. Grace also set an example for her younger sister Sage who has also chosen that she wants to donate to us on her birthday as well. Thank you to Grace for donating and her parents Kristin and Errol for their exceptional support.
