Finding loving homes for animals in need

Give the gift of a “furever” home to an animal who is being overlooked by adopters by sponsoring their adoption fee during the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s iAdopt for the Holidays campaign, running until Dec. 25.

The Ontario SPCA is committed to finding a loving home for every adoptable animal.

Sadly, some animals are overlooked by adopters due to age or special needs. To help those animals find loving homes, the Ontario SPCA is piloting an Adopt-it-Forward program that gives donors the opportunity to pay the adoption fee for an animal who has been waiting to find a loving home.

The goal of iAdopt for the Holidays is to find loving homes for as many animals as possible at Ontario SPCA animal centres across the province during the holiday campaign.

Last year, close to 600 animals found loving homes across Ontario during the iAdopt for the Holidays campaign.

With many people enjoying time off during the holidays and being home together as a family, now is the perfect time to welcome an animal into your life.

If you’ve already adopted an animal, you can help promote the benefits of adoption by entering Ontario’s Cutest Adopted Animal Photo Contest at iadopt.ca. There are amazing weekly prizes to be won, as well as a grand prize awarded to the pet with the most votes. Enter your pet’s cutest photo and encourage your friends, family, co-workers and neighbours to cast their votes. To enter or to vote, visit iadopt.ca

“You can bring joy to animals in need this holiday season by making a donation to help give them the second chance they deserve,” says Elizabeth Westover, manager of Ontario SPCA York Region Animal Centre. “As a registered charity, the Ontario SPCA depends on the generosity of donors to provide care and shelter to animals in need as they wait for a family to adopt them.”
