The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is giving 26 dogs from the United States a new lease on life thanks to a re-homing mission that will find the dogs a loving home in Ontario while helping animal shelters south of the border make space to help more animals.
The dogs arrived at Ontario SPCA animal centres on March 1 from North Carolina with health certificates and proof of vaccination and have since undergone additional wellness examinations. They will be available for adoption at the Ontario SPCA’s animal centres across the province, including here in Muskoka. Animals adopted through the Ontario SPCA are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and microchipped.
This dog transport marks the first of 2022 for the Ontario SPCA, which works with communities, rescues and other SPCAs and Humane Societies in Ontario and beyond to help find homes for animals. Animals in need of homes are brought to areas of the province where there are families waiting to adopt.
“There are many animal shelters in the United States that are at capacity and when they reach out to us for help, we do what we can to assist,” says Bonnie Bishop, Associate Director and Transfer Team Lead, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. “The Ontario SPCA has 12 animal centres across the province and currently has room for dogs, which is why we were able to work with our partners south of the border to give these dogs the loving families they deserve.”
