Newshound Shelter Health Pro

New Shelter Health Pro website launched

The Ontario SPCA has launched a new online tool, shelterhealthpro.com, to equip animal shelter staff, volunteers and veterinary care providers with resources to make animals more comfortable in a humane and healthy environment.

While designed specifically for animal shelter staff, volunteers and veterinary care providers, the information available on the new Shelter Health Pro website is applicable to anyone responsible for housing a large group of animals. This includes breeders, kennel operators and event organizers, such as those hosting dog shows and pet expos.

The goal of the website is to save lives with the most current best practices for improving animal health and welfare through effective management strategies, protocols and resources for infection and disease prevention and control.

 Dog Transfer  Paws and Give

58 dogs flown from Northern Ontario to find new homes

A plane carrying 58 community dogs in search of new homes arrived at the Peterborough Airport on Friday, Oct. 7 from Big Trout Lake First Nation, a community about 500 kilometres north of Thunder Bay.

In an effort to help address the pet overpopulation concerns in the community, Big Trout Lake First Nation invited the Provincial Animal Transfer Team – established by the Ontario SPCA and made up of volunteers and organizations from across Ontario – to assist with the transfer.

Upon arrival at the Peterborough Airport, the dogs were triaged by a team of volunteers from across the province, including veterinarians and veterinarian technicians. Once cleared for further transport, the dogs were brought to the Peterborough Humane Society, the North Bay & District Humane Society, the Welland & District Humane Society, and the Quinte Humane Society to be placed in their adoption programs.
