BuySell.com'TM' Lends a Helping Hand to the Toronto Humane Society

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 8, 2005) -

REPORTER'S SUMMARY

The Toronto Humane Society and BuySell.com™ are pleased to announce a joint partnership that will promote the concept of pet adoption within the Toronto area. Our mission is to encourage the public to provide loving homes for abandoned animals, as well as increasing the general awareness of this society and its facilities.

The Humane Society will provide us with their pet inventory and supply all content and photos required to get these animals in need of good homes featured on our web site. All animals will be listed in our popular "Pets" section that utilizes Buy & Sell search functionality. There will be a reciprocal link that will allow users to inquire about a particular pet and email the Humane Society directly for more information. The Buy & Sell will also be posting the latest quarterly news and vital information as provided by the society - we are hoping that this will provide added value to our online users and "pet lovers".

"We are excited to be able to support an organization that makes a difference in our community everyday. If we can make one person aware of the Toronto Humane Society when deciding to adopt a pet into their family, then we have made a difference and accomplished our goal." - Kevin Pepper, Buy & Sell General Manager, Ontario Region.

"Corporations like Buy & Sell are vital to the success of our organization. Our society operates as an independent not-for-profit organization that relies heavily on strategic partnerships and alliances as well as corporate and individual donations. We are anticipating a long-term valuable partnership with the Buy & Sell and our ultimate mission is to continue to rescue and provide loving families for all of our animals." - Lynda Elmy, Communications Manager, The Toronto Humane Society.
