Heidi is approximately four years old and is awaiting her spay date. She is a female shepherd mix. Heidi is a gentle and well mannered girl who walks well on leash. She does need to be supervised in the yard as she is a bit of an escape artist but once she bonds to her new family she should stay close to home. She recently came to us through our friends at SCARS (Second Chance Animal Rescue Society) and settled in beautifully with us.
Elsa is a 9 month old old female shepherd cross. She recently came to the SPCA from SCARS.Elsa currently has some health issues but we are optimistic about her recovery. She is affectionate and loves treats.
Roxy is on adoption trial. Roxy is a unique mix! She is a one and half year old spayed pitbull/daschund cross who stands about 15 inches high. She loves car rides, takes treats nicely and knows sit. Roxy is a little shy at first but warms up quickly to people. At present she will do best in a home with teenagers and adults although this will improve as we continue working with her. She walks well on leash and is learning stay.Roxy is a cute and playful little girl.
We have decided to offer sponsorships of the pets in our care. Many people can't adopt a pet but they would like to support one. By sponsoring a pet you can help pay some of the costs of the care of the dogs or cats in the care of the SPCA.
How does it work?
For a $25 donation you can sponsor a dog or cat of your choice for the duration of its stay at the SPCA. Your name will appear under the animal's picture on the blog, on the animal's kennel and on Facebook with the animal from time to time. It can be a personal name or a company name. If you don't want your name listed it can be recorded as anonymous.
Only one sponsor per animal and first come-first sponsored. Sponsorship can be done by dropping into the SPCA between 9-1 and 6:30-8:30 daily or by calling the SPCA with your credit card.
The SPCA is currently looking for assistance with bottle sorting. The volunteering includes moving bottles in the SPCA van (you must have a driver's license) to the bottle depot, sorting and counting bottles. Some bags and boxes are heavy so a good back is an asset. Hours are flexible. If you are interested please contact Cathy at 780.817.1075.
The SPCA is holding our annual bottle drive but we are doing it a little differently this year. We are asking that people with a small amount of bottles drop them at the SPCA at their convience. For larger loads pick up can be arranged by calling Cathy at 780.817.1075.
The SPCA uses bottle money to help pay for veterinary care, including spays and neuters for the animals in our facility.
