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.

reduction in the risk of developing certain cancers and illnesses.
The Ontario SPCA’s

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
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!
