High Number of Rabies Cases Reported

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry reported earlier this June, 76 cases of confirmed raccoon strain and fox strains in parts of southwestern Ontario. Along with having your pet vaccinated by your veterinarian, there are ways to keep your family and pets safe.

Max roosters
A Furry Family for “Max”

Eight-year-old “Max”, a sweet little Bichon was surrendered into our care after circumstances prevented his owners from giving him the care he needed. Max was seen by one of our veterinary partners and needed to have some of his teeth removed.  

During his recovery, he stayed with a wonderful foster family. The other animals in the foster home LOVED little Max and he fit in perfectly. It didn’t take long for his foster family to realize they needed to adopt him! Max is now happy at home with his other furry friends - canine friend “Cooper”, and feline friends “Ella”, “Josie”, “Reagan” and “Ralph”!
A Home to Roost

“Sylvestor” and “Stallone” are two handsome roosters who came to the Ontario SPCA Orangeville & District Animal Centre through an investigation. They are currently being cared for at one of our foster farms but are looking for a forever home to call their own. 

If you would like to add one (or both) of these friendly roosters to your farm family, please email Agent Crocker at vcrocker@ospca.on.ca for more information.
