Take the #NoHotPets Pledge

Did you know that dogs have a limited ability to sweat and that even a short time in a hot environment can be life-threatening? A dog’s normal body temperature is about 39°C, a temperature of 41°C can be withstood only for a very short time before irreparable brain damage or even death can occur.

We need you to help spread the message about the danger of leaving pets unattended in vehicles. Take the pledge to receive a No Hot Pets car decal to show your support. You can also invite friends to take the pledge on social media using #nohotpets for a chance to win a weekly “cool pet” prize.

No Excuses. No Hot Pets. 

Take the Pledge

Urgent Appeal August

Fixing the Pet Overpopulation Crisis Starts With You

Pet overpopulation is at a crisis level in Ontario and we need responsible pet owners like you to spay it forward. By spaying or neutering your pet, you’re doing your part to help reduce the number of homeless animals that end up in animal centres across the province.

Spaying and neutering is a straight-forward medical procedure with many health benefits, including the reduction in the risk of developing certain cancers and illnesses.

The Ontario SPCA’s high-volume spay/neuter clinics are open Monday to Friday, with one Saturday each month.

Adopt a cat during the “iAdopt Urgent Appeal” adoption blitz

Have you been considering adding a cat to your family? Now’s the best time! Orangeville & District Animal Centre will be taking part in an “iAdopt Urgent Appeal” adoption blitz from Aug. 11-21 to help find homes for the recent influx of adult cats in our care.

During this urgent appeal adoption blitz, ALL ADULT CATS will be available for adoption for $50 each*.  All cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, come with a gift of six weeks of pet insurance and are up to date with their vaccines.

To view animals available for adoption, visit meetyourmatch.ontariospca.ca.

*Special adoption fee applies to participating Ontario SPCA Animal Centres only.

Get Your Pet's Nails Trimmed at the Paw Spa

Each month, our local Pet Valu hosts nail trimming sessions in support of the Ontario SPCA Orangeville & District Animal Centre. If you’re not a fan of trimming your pet’s nails (or maybe they like it even less!) bring them to a participating location. For just a $10 donation, certified groomers will trim your pet’s nails.

For participating locations, dates and times, visit our Facebook page.

Thank you to Pet Valu and the Paw Spa Groomers for their support each month!

Working together to help animals in need 

Did you know that the Orangeville & District Animal Centre helps a variety of animals get their second chance at life? From cats and dogs, to birds, guinea pigs, rabbits, rats, mice, pot bellied pigs and roosters (yes, we said roosters!), we have had a number of animals look to us for help recently.

But what do these animals have in common? A strong support system comprised not only of our animal centre staff, but also volunteers, donors and the community. Without the help of generous people like you, we couldn’t do what we do. Thank you for your continued support!
