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.

You’ve got to be kitten me!

Nope, we aren't! Kitten season is far from over, with more and more litters in need of our help every day. And with the cold weather approaching, we're looking to our community for help.

Adopt an animal this holiday season

It won’t be long until the holidays are here and the Ontario SPCA is gearing up to find homes for as many animals as possible during “iAdopt for the Holidays”. From Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, SPCAs, Humane Societies, rescue groups and Animal Welfare groups across Canada will be encouraging people to choose pet adoption as their first option when bringing home a new family member. The Ontario SPCA will also be rolling out some exciting new initiatives, contests and special promotions throughout iAdopt for the Holidays, so stay tuned for details!

 Orangeville Kelseys  Orangeville Whiskey

Thank you Kelsey's Orangeville!

Kelsey's Orangeville re-opened their doors earlier this month with a new look and a new menu! For their grand re-opening they asked for donations to the Orangeville & District Animal Centre, and we were thrilled! Thank you to the entire Kelsey's team who raised $315 for animals at our centre!

Head down to the new Kelsey's and check them out - you won't be disappointed!

Whiskey gets “couch comfortable” in his new home!

We recently had a handsome Bordeaux boy arrive at our centre named Whiskey. He won the heart of all the girls in our centre! This calm, well-mannered boy came to us as a surrender and patiently awaited for his forever family to find him.

Whiskey wasn't with us for long before he found his new home. His new mom sent us an update shortly after adopting him and it brought a grin to our face!
