Welcome to NewsHound!
In this edition of NewsHound:

The Ontario SPCA is gearing up for the holidays with some great programs in support of the animals.

 SAP Canada
SAP Canada Lends Hand

On October 25th, the Ontario SPCA Provincial Education & Animal Centre (PEAC) was proud to host 16 employees from SAP Canada for their day of service.
During their visit, SAP employees spent the day beautifying the Spay Neuter Clinic, building cat towers, repairing dog runs and tending to the gardens.  

“More corporations recognize the benefits of offering their employees this type of opportunity and the impact often goes well beyond one day.  SAP Canada employees not only gave their time for their day of service, but several are now regular supporters”, says Carol May-McQuillan, Senior Manager, Volunteer Development.

Thank you SAP Canada employees for dedicating your day of service to the Ontario SPCA.

 Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday - Give the Gift of Time

On Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014, Giving Tuesday will be celebrated all across Canada, and internationally around the world.

Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it is a day to give back, in whatever way you choose, but it is also an opportunity to teach the importance of philanthropy to our younger generations.

The Ontario SPCA could not continue its life saving work without the help of our wonderful volunteers.  

This Giving Tuesday, give the gift of your time!  

Contact one of the Ontario SPCA branches or affiliates to see how you can help.
