The south-east corner of the Horse Palace at Exhibition Place was retrofitted in 2003 to accomodate a municipal animal shelter for Toronto Animal Services. The animal shelter is on 2 floors and has been built to comfortably serve both people and animals. Public areas include cat, dog and small mammal adoption rooms in a clean and bright environment. There is room for up to 120 cats, 75 dogs and 20 small mammals.

Event information:
Visitors will be able to participate in tours of the Animal Centre and enjoy educational exhibits on responsible pet ownership. Canine Cody and Officer Robert will be giving a series of lectures for children and adults on dog bite prevention and safety.
