The Ontario SPCA and the Humane Society are giving new life to 26 dogs from across the United States through a rehoming mission that will find the dogs a loving home in Ontario while helping animal shelters south of the border room to help more animals.

The dogs arrived at Ontario SPCA animal centers on March 1 from North Carolina with health certificates and proof of vaccinations and have since undergone additional wellness screenings.

They will be available for adoption at Ontario SPCA animal centers across the province, including here in Orillia, where four of the dogs are expected. Animals adopted through the Ontario SPCA are spayed or spayed, vaccinated, treated for parasites and microchipped.

This dog haul 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 be adopted.

“There are many animal shelters in the United States that are at capacity and when they ask us for help, we do what we can to help them,” says Bonnie Bishop, associate director and team leader. Transfer, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society.

“The Ontario SPCA has 12 animal centers across the province and currently has room for dogs, which is why we have been able to work with our partners south of the border to give these dogs the loving families that ‘they deserve.
