Many people, even avid animal lovers, are unaware of the work Humane Society International/Canada does, everything they do to help animals behind the scenes, and the lengths to which they go to help the non-human creatures among us. This week, thanks to a series of moving photos by talented artists, the Toronto public will be able to learn about the organization as they wander through a captivating exhibit in one of the city’s most appealing pedestrian walkways.


In celebration of Earth Day (April 22nd), made possible through passionate efforts by Eric and Dana Margolis of the Eric S. Margolis Family Foundation (Dana is pictured below), Humane Society International/Canada has staged a moving photographic exhibit. This is the first time in the history of HSI/Canada that their work will be artistically displayed for a wider audience, highlighting the organization’s lifesaving work accomplished nationally and around the globe.
