‘Tis the season to adopt

iAdopt for the Holidays is now in full swing, which means we’re asking you to consider giving a homeless animal a loving home.

Until Dec. 31, the Ontario SPCA, as well as SPCAs, Humane Societies and Animal Welfare groups across Canada are encouraging people to choose pet adoption as their first 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 supplies last! 

Already have an adopted pet? Enter the iAdopt contest for a chance to WIN free pet food for a year from Royal Canin! Visit iadopt.ca for contest details.

Canada’s first Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre will assist dogs that require extra care and attention

The 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.

The 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.

Take a few minutes to learn about this campaign in our Animals’ Voice Pawdcast.

Judy Newshound Small


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.

At 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.

At 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.

When you give this plush toy as a gift, you will be helping to rescue other dogs like Judy.


Ontario SPCA wins award for environmental stewardship 

The 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.

Thank you to Ontario Streams for recognizing our commitment!
