Junebug’s Story

by | Happy Tails News |

A tiny black kitten was seen weaving in and out of traffic in a parking lot where she was almost hit a few times, looking dazed and confused. A good Samaritan named Chantelle Penney witnessed this and immediately went to the kitten’s aid. Chantelle brought the kitten into the Ontario SPCA Provincial Education and Animal Centre (PEAC) in Newmarket.

Upon intake, PEAC staff discovered the kitten was severely dehydrated and had maggots and sores all over her. After further examination, they found infected puncture wounds all over the kitten’s body.

Shelter staff came to love the kitten and affectionately named her “Junebug.”

It required a lot of nursing and around the clock care to get Junebug back in good health, but they were able to do it!

Junebug has recently been spayed and adoptedby Chantelle, the good Samaritan who initially found her and followed her progress throughout the whole journey.

Congratulations to Junebug and her new family!

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves.  My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are.  Thank you SPCA.
