iadopt for the Holidays Contest

‘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, when you adopt a cat or kitten at an Ontario SPCA Animal Centre, you’ll receive a free box of Arm & Hammer Slide™ 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.


Paws & Give Gifts

Paws & Give® for Client or Employee Holiday Gifts

Does your workplace have a large number of animal-loving clients or employees? Paws & Give® for your holiday gift giving!

From something as simple as personalized animal-themed holiday cards, to plush animal adoptions for the office (after all, plush dogs get along with everyone and are non-allergenic!), Paws & Give has you covered. 

You can find stocking-stuffers like pet-first aid kits and colourful bandanas, or dog & cat advent calendars to include people’s pets in the holiday festivities.

Want to know the warmest, fuzziest part? These gifts give back twice – to your clients or employees, and by helping animals in need.

This holiday season you can feel great, give back and help animals who need you. Contact us today pawsandgive@ospca.on.ca or 1-888-668-7722 x360 and let us help you with your holiday gift giving!

Cat Adoption, Newshound

Cat in litterbox

Urgent Cat Appeal

We need your help! Our Animal Centres are at capacity for cats and we urgently need to find them their forever homes. What better time to adopt then during iAdopt for the Holidays?

When you adopt a cat or kitten from an Ontario SPCA Animal Centre, your furry friend will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. Meet your next best friend today!

Visit meetyourmatch.ontariospca.ca or visit your nearest Ontario SPCA Animal Centre to view the cats available for adoption.

Cat Litter Best Practices

Litter box issues are one of the most common reasons cats find themselves back at Ontario SPCA Animal Centres. Arm & Hammer™, one of our partners for the iAdopt for the Holidays campaign, have some great advice on litter box best practices to help encourage a happy and healthy transition to the new home.

Creating an environment that falls in line with cat’s natural instincts is key. Read our blog post Litter box best practices – Arm & Hammer™ for great tips and set your feline friend up for success.

Make a Will Month

November is Make a Will month, so we're talking about legacies, animals and Wills!

On this week's Animals' Voice Pawdcast, we interview Nancy Hull, lifelong supporter of animals and the Ontario SPCA. She shares with us why she thinks it's important for animal lovers to make a Will, and why she chose to include the Ontario SPCA in her Will.

Visit our website for sample terminology when creating your Will and learn more on how you can Leave a Legacy.
