dog rehab centreBelieve in the Underdog 

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre is one of the first facilities of its kind in Canada, and one of only a handful in North America. 

Located inside the Peterborough Humane Society’s new Animal Care Centre, the Provincial Dog Rehabilitation Centre has been custom built to help dogs who need more individualized care than a typical animal centre can provide. Operated by the Ontario SPCA’s Animal Behaviour team, the centre supports dogs from animal centres across the province. It contains a number of unique features:   

  • An underwater treadmill for enrichment and low-impact exercise  
  • The Arlo Gattuso-Slaight Dog Living Room to help dogs practice appropriate behaviours in a home environment  
  • Training rooms to help dogs overcome behavioural challenges and learn to socialize  
  • Dedicated animal behavioural experts focused on each dog’s unique needs 

Together, we can turn things around for dogs in need of behavioural rehabilitation to give them the second chance they deserve.
