Meet Your Match® through the Ontario SPCA and Humane Societ

IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Stouffville, ON (April 3, 2017) – Looking for that special someone who enjoys long walks on the beach, or cuddling up with a good book? The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society invites you to drop by your local animal centre to Meet Your Match®.

If you’ve been thinking of adopting a pet, the Ontario SPCA has you covered with the best matchmaking tool around. The Meet Your Match program won’t let you go home without knowing who’s in that carrier or on that leash. A program of the ASPCA, Meet Your Match is the only method in existence today that evaluates an animal’s behaviour and interests and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so that you can take home a pet you can really click with.

Meeting your match is as simple as completing a quick adopter survey before visiting your local Ontario SPCA animal centre. The survey will assign you a colour based on your preferences and lifestyle. On your visit to your local Ontario SPCA animal centre, you will be given a purple, orange or green guest pass to match with the pets who might suit you best. You don’t always have to go with your own colour, but at least you’ll know who you’re mixing with!

“With Meet Your Match, you’ll find the dog or cat that suits your personality and way of life,” says Tonya Martin, Director, Animal Centres & Humane Programming, Ontario SPCA. “Even if you’re not ready to adopt, we challenge you to take the survey anyway. It’s fun, insightful and the results might just surprise you.”
