Register Today to Walk for Animals in Need
For Life! Walk™ presented by Pedigree® is taking place across the province
on the weekend of September 24-25! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep current on the latest
giveaways, flash contests and everything you need to get you and your pup ready
for the walk!
The Friends for Life! Walk™ is a major fundraiser for the Ontario SPCA
and its Affiliates. You don’t need to bring a dog to the walk to participate.
In fact, you don’t even need to own a pet! The Friends for Life! Walk™ is a way
for you to give back to your community by helping animals in need.
We can’t do this alone, which is why we need you to go the extra mile to
help vulnerable animals.
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
