Stouffville, ON (June 19, 2023) – Show your local veterinary team some love for keeping your furry friends happy and healthy by nominating them in the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s Veterinary Appreciation Contest. 

Hosted in partnership with participating SPCA and humane society locations across the province, the Ontario SPCA is hosting its Veterinary Appreciation Contest from June 19-30. To help say thank you to veterinary teams who give so much, nominate your pet’s veterinary clinic and encourage family and friends to vote in support. The veterinary clinic with the most votes will receive a plaque and a complimentary lunch for their staff.  

“Anyone with a furry family member knows the love and joy animals give, which is why we need to thank the veterinary professionals that help our animals live long and happy lives,” says Dr. Stephanie Black, Chief Veterinary Officer, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. “We encourage anyone with a pet to take the time to recognize their local veterinary professionals and show them appreciation for the work they do to care for our special animal friends.”

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society Provincial Office sits on the traditional territory of the Wendat, the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of Scugog, Hiawatha and Alderville First Nations and the Métis Nation. This territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. The treaties that were signed for this particular parcel of land are collectively referred to as the Williams Treaties of 1923.
