Meet Keira – Success stories from the 75 dogs transfer


In early November, the Ontario SPCA, along with support from Beat the Heat Kenora, the Thunder Bay & District Humane Society, the North Bay & District Humane Society and North Star Air were invited by Whitefish Bay First Nations Community to assist in the capture and transfer of 75 dogs and puppies.

The dogs were placed up for adoption and we are now starting to hear back from the new families. Keira was one of the dogs recently adopted.

Keira was adopted November 9th by her new mom Leah H. an employee of the Ontario SPCA Centre Veterinary Hospital, Stouffville. For Leah, she says there was no question Keira needed to be part of her family.

“When she came in for her spay, I saw her, and I fell in love with her, and that was the end of it, I had to have her,” says Leah.

Leah already had one dog, an eight-year-old mixed street rescue dog named Bono. The two dogs have become fast friends, and love cuddling with each other.

“She’s the biggest snuggle-bug ever,” says Leah.

The group of dogs that came from Whitefish Bay Leah says are not what she expected, in the best way.

“They are so sweet, so nice, and all they really want’s a chance,” she says.

We wish Keira and Leah all the best on their new adventure together!
