Abandoned “Ralphie” Gets a Second Chance 

The poor little kitten we named “Ralphie” was found shivering alone in the cold, starving and covered in fleas.

The staff at the Ontario SPCA Orangeville & District Animal Centre worked tirelessly to help bring him back to health. He required around-the-clock care and feedings, which he received in a foster home. Against all odds, he started to gain weight and has begun to recover.

Want to learn more about his story? Visit our Facebook page, or drop by his donation page if you think you can help him!
