News Release: Thirty (30) Dogs and Puppies Surrendered to HSLM

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LONDON, ON, December 18, 2018—  At an already busy time of year, Humane Society London & Middlesex recently had many more animals come into their care; thirty (30) dogs and puppies were surrendered to the shelter. Included in the group of canines, is a nursing mother with six puppies and a dog with a pronounced heart murmur.

“We were certainly not expecting such an influx of puppies and dogs to the shelter.  We are appealing to the community to make financial contributions so that we can provide these animals with the veterinary care they require,” says Humane Society London & Middlesex Executive Director, Steve Ryall.  “As a non-profit charitable organization that receives no direct Government funding, we cannot provide second chances for over 2,000 animals each year, without the generosity of our donors.”

Expenses incurred with such a large increase of dogs at the shelter include additional veterinary care, food costs, cleaning and grooming.

We are urging our community to help these animals by making financial contributions online at www.hslm.ca/help-us/donate, in person at 624 Clarke Rd, or by phone: 519-451-0630 x222 or mail.
