"Patty's" Long Journey

You may have heard the story about "Patty", the sweet hairless chocolate lab surrendered to the Ontario SPCA Investigations department, who after months of treatments and relapses, is finally ready for adoption.

Although Patty had a rough start in life, this senior girl is ready to find her forever home with a new family who can care for her and her special needs.  In the Meet your Match program, Patty is a Green Go Getter with lots of energy to keep you motivated and moving.

Please inquire about adopting Patty by callin 905-898-7122 ext. 306, or you can donate towards Patty’s care by visiting Patty Needs Your Help.
