Tips for Students
Walk! This Weekend

Daisy & Cleo

Sisters "Daisy" (renamed "Cassie") and "Cleo" will be staying together as they join their new adoptive family.

The two little kitties were originally brought into the Ontario SPCA Lennox & Addington Branch as part of a litter of nine kittens.

They are already feeling right at home in their new surroundings:

"The kittens are happy, healthy, and full of energy. They love their treats and exploring their new environment. Plastic lids are always a welcome toy and hanging from the cat tree or helping make the bed are fun things to do.”

We are so happy to see these two sisters find their new forever home together.

View animals available for adoption by visiting your local Ontario SPCA Branch!
The Grand Marshal Contest is Back!

The Ontario SPCA Friends for Life! Walk™ Grand Marshall contest is back! Does your pet have what it takes?

Fall in Love - iAdopt for Fall

Fall is a great time to welcome a new addition into your family! Because there’s no better time to fall in love, iAdopt For Fall.

There are many animals awaiting their forever homes at Ontario SPCA Communities across the province. Our adoption campaign “iAdopt for Fall” aims to get as many animals as possible placed into their loving forever homes.

For the month of September, the adoption rate for all adult cats is only $99 at all Ontario SPCA branches.

There is still time! iAdopt for Fall ends September 30th.

Take our online Meet Your Match™ adopter survey so you’ll know before coming in to one of our shelters which type of animal you really click with. Take the survey now!

Tips for Student Volunteers

The fall is a great time to volunteer, whether it’s for community hours or for job experience.

The Ontario SPCA receives hundreds of student volunteer applications every year; therefore it’s important that your application stands out.

If you are a high school student looking for a position within the Ontario SPCA, there are things you can do!

The most important tip is to complete every section of the online application form.

Apply early! If you need hours for the coming year, don’t wait until the end of the first semester to apply. 

Positions are limited and the volunteer recruitment process can take a month or more to complete.

Volunteer positions can pop up at anytime, so check the website regularly so you don’t miss out!

Friends For Life! Walk is THIS weekend!

Tails are wagging for the Ontario SPCA Friends for Life!Walk™ .

We’re now in our final stretch with only a week left to go!

This weekend, thousands of walk participants across the province, will enjoy a stroll with their families around the park in their community to help raise support for animals in need across Ontario.

We encourage everyone to come out and walk with us! Even if you don’t have a pet, come out to enjoy the day and support this worthwhile cause.

Everyone who registered is working hard to raise pledges and we appreciate your support! If you’re unable to walk, you can always support a walker. Click here to find a person or team to sponsor.

If you haven’t registered, you still can! Just go to friendsforlifewalk.ca.

We’ll see you at the walk!
