‘Tis the season to adopt
the Holidays is now in full swing, which means we’re asking you to consider

option when bringing home a new family member. Be
sure to visit your local participating society to take part in iAdopt for the Holidays and change an
animal’s life this holiday season.
PLUS during the campaign period, all cats
and kittens at Ontario SPCA animal centres are available for adoption for only $99 and
you’ll receive a free box of Arm & Hammer® clumping cat litter while

Canada’s first Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre will assist dogs
that require extra care and attention
campaign to build the Ontario SPCA Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre is now
underway! This one-of-a-kind facility will fill a critical gap in current
services by addressing the special needs of dogs most difficult to adopt.
Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre will be built on Peterborough Humane
Society’s lush new 20-acre property, giving dogs a fresh start with lots of
opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Designed from the ground up for dogs who
require extra care and attention, the building will feature an abundance of
natural light to promote healing and a layout that incorporates the latest
research and best practices in animal centre management.

Meet Judy, the newest
addition to the Rocky & Friends collection
This holiday season, we’re excited to introduce
Judy as the newest plush in our Rocky & Friends collection. Like the other
Friends, Judy is created in the image of a very real animal who got a second
chance because of caring and kind people like you who support the Ontario SPCA.
just three weeks old, Judy and her family were part of a very special journey.
The Ontario SPCA was invited by a remote Northern community to assist in a
stray dog transfer and rehoming operation.
the Ontario SPCA, Judy and her six siblings were put in the loving care of a
temporary foster home to be nurtured until they were old enough to be adopted.
This black Shepherd-Labrador mix and her siblings were all adopted and are very
happy in their new forever homes.

Ontario SPCA wins award for environmental
Ontario SPCA is honoured to be the recipient of a stewardship award from Ontario Streams for
our continued support of their efforts to protect streams and reforestation. Ontario Streams is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated
to the conservation and rehabilitation of streams and wetlands. Through our partnership, Ontario Streams has planted
2,400 trees at the Ontario SPCA Provincial Office and Provincial Education
& Animal Centre, located just outside Newmarket.
In areas such as York Region that are experiencing
high urban growth, maintaining tree cover and natural green spaces can be a
challenge. The increase in impermeable surfaces caused by the paving of roads and
development of subdivisions interferes with the natural hydrology of a
watershed, and inevitably results in water quality and quantity issues and loss
of pristine aquatic and terrestrial habitat. The
Ontario SPCA recognizes that a healthy environment is essential for the health
and well being of our community, including our four-legged friends.
you to Ontario Streams for recognizing our commitment!
