WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND ABANDONED, SICK OR INJURED ANIMALS IN THE PARK

On Sunday, two local residents found a pet rabbit and later found two kittens abandoned behind the Power House in the wooded area near the creek. The kittens were in a pet carrier case and who ever left them there had left some cans of food open for them.  The kittens had not ventured out of their case.  The kittens were adorable, very playful, very hungry and a little frightened.

The abandoned animals were taken to a nearby animal shelter (directions below) and the kind animal lovers who found them were assured that they would be taken care of.  They pets would be observed for about a week, checked by a vet and then adopted out.


So, keep your eyes open, and make sure that, if you do find strays, the animal shelter operated by the Toronto Animal Services at 146 East Mall will take them in.  The general phone number for them is 416 338 7297.  The location is approximately 427 and Dundas Street West.  Hours of operation 10.30 to 6.30, 7 days a week.


For concerns about sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife, or any other wildlife-related question or concern, please call the Toronto Wildlife Center at 416 631 0662.  Hours of operation 9 to 6, 7 days a week.
