Will you help animals like Preston find a safe and loving home?

We need your help! Every animal in our care is looking for their match. We need 292 new monthly donors by June 15 to help animals in our care get adopted. Your monthly donation covers intake, medical care, Meet Your Match® profile creation, virtual or in-person meet and greet, and everything an animal needs to head to their forever home.

Aug. 3 is National Senior Pet Day, a day to celebrate animals of all shapes and sizes in their golden years. It’s also a day to reflect on the joy that comes with living and caring for our furry and feathered friends. And for the team at the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society, it’s a day to honour all the amazing adopters who have given a senior animal, like Rosie, a safe place to live out their days.
