July 4th, 2023, marks a momentous milestone in our journey of compassion and dedication. The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society celebrates its 150th Anniversary! 

A history of collaboration 

From the start, we have shared this work cannot be done alone. Together we have had an extraordinary impact on animal welfare over the last 150 years. Your support has transformed countless lives, bringing hope and healing to the most vulnerable. 

From volunteering, donating, adopting, or being their voice and advocating for their rights, your unwavering commitment has touched the hearts of animals in communities across the province. We are truly grateful. 

Messages of support 

We are pleased to share with you two additional messages of congratulations we recently received. Please join us in watching a video message from Premier Doug Ford and a video message from the Leader of the Opposition, Marit Stiles.
