Details: Every Friday morning, the Pet-of-the-week will showcase our weekly pet up for adoption.

Few of life's joys compare to the warm connection we feel with animals. Whether it's a long relaxing walk with a loyal canine, sleeping in on a Sunday morning with a cozy cat by your side, or watching your child's amazement as his new bunny munches on carrots, very few things in life can compare to the unconditional love, companionship and fun given by our animal friends!

If it's time for a new pet in your life, you will surely find your perfect companion at an Ontario SPCA adoption centre. There are so many wonderful pets at Ontario SPCA adoption centres throughout the province - cats and dogs of all ages, shapes, sizes and breeds, as well as birds, rabbits, guinea pigs and more - waiting in hope for a home, someone to share life with, someone to love.

Through its province-wide network of 50 plus Communities, the Ontario SPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is one of the largest, most responsive animal welfare organizations in the country, providing care and shelter for tens of thousands of animals every year.

As a non-profit charitable organization, the Ontario SPCA is unique amongst animal welfare organizations in Ontario: the Ontario SPCA Act mandates the Society to enforce animal cruelty laws and provides Ontario SPCA Community investigators with police powers to do so.

For over a century the Ontario SPCA has provided province-wide leadership on matters relating to the prevention of cruelty to animals and the promotion of animal welfare, and worked with its Communities to encourage humane and suitable animal care; call attention to unacceptable practices that harm animals; investigate cruelty complaints; carry out rescues; bring perpetrators of cruelty to court; advocate for humane laws; and provide care to all animals in need.

The Society's programs and services include:

  • Cruelty Investigations
  • Sheltering and Adoptions
  • Humane Education
  • Reducing Pet Overpopulation
  • Emergency Rescue and Treatment
  • Reuniting Lost Pets with their Owners
  • Spay/Neuter Services
  • Rescue & Relief™ Services

These are exciting times for the Ontario SPCA and all people who care about animals. As animal welfare issues take a greater place in the consciousness of our communities and legislatures, the Society's opportunities to effect meaningful change - and yours - increase dramatically.

Working together we can make a difference in the lives of countless animals in need.

 

It is the Ontario SPCA's steadfast belief - and an integral component of its vision - that all animals are worthy of respect, compassion and a second chance.

 

By extending our compassion to all animals we are able to gain a deeper appreciation of the beauty, intelligence, courage and spirit all animals possess.

 

Society staff and volunteers work tirelessly to help create a better life for animals in Ontario - a province in which all Ontarians respect and appreciate animals and in which no animals are homeless or abused. They do so in the face of great adversity - from dealing first-hand with heartbreaking cases of animal cruelty to a seemingly never-ending influx of animals in need of our care.

 

With the generosity of caring people working together our vision and goals for the welfare of animals will come closer to becoming a reality.
