The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society kicks off iAdopt for the Holidays adoption campaign

Nation-wide adoption event finds loving homes for animals during the season of giving

Stouffville, ON (November 12, 2019) –  With the holidays just around the corner, the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is asking you to add one more special someone to your holiday list – and your family. Give an animal the gift of a loving home during iAdopt for the Holidays, a national adoption campaign to find homes for as many animals as possible during a time of year when families are together and can help their new pet settle in.

iAdopt for the Holidays is a program of the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society that runs until Dec. 31 at participating SPCAs, humane societies and rescue groups across Canada. Last year, over 3,600 animals from across Canada found their forever homes during the iAdopt for the Holidays campaign.

“The holidays are actually a great time to welcome a new furry companion into your life. Together as a family, you can spend time with your new pet and help them settle into their new home,” says Daryl Vaillancourt, Chief, Humane Programs & Community Outreach, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. “Our focus is finding the right home for every adoptable animal to help ensure the matches we make are lifetime matches.”

Potential adopters take part in the science-based Meet Your Match® program, which matches their personality and lifestyle with the animals awaiting adoption. The adoption process, which is used at all 12 Ontario SPCA and Humane Society animal centres across Ontario, helps ensure adopters are going home with their most compatible match.

All cats and dogs available through the Ontario SPCA are spayed or neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations and come with a gift of one month of pet insurance. Animals adopted from the Ontario SPCA or a participating partner during the iAdopt for the Holidays campaign will be entered in a draw for a chance to win free pet food for a year from Royal Canin.

Already have an adopted pet? Visit iadopt.ca to find out how you can win a $500 PetSmart gift card for your pet and a $500 PetSmart gift card for the participating animal charity of your choice.
