Why adopt an SPCA dog or cat??
Because they are:
When you adopt an SPCA dog or cat you free up one of our spaces - enabling us to rescue another neglected or abused or homeless dog. They need your love and we need your support. Help us find an SPCA dog or cat a home today.
SPCA's Microchipping service.
The SPCA can microchip your dog or cat for you and list it on a national internet database called The Companion Animal Register.
Reef the Staffordshire Bull Terrier (Below) was stolen but because he was microchipped, Reef was identified and reunited with his original family. Contact us for more details about microchipping.
Lucky Lacey's New Home
Lacey came to us some months ago as a stray. As she was microchipped, we were able to find her owner. Unfortunately, her owner was no longer able to care for her due to her own ill health.
We took Lacey in to Bay of Islands Vets and when she was checked it was discovered she had early skin cancer lesions on her ears. We decided that as she was such a delightful cat to go to the expense of having her ears cropped to halt the spread of the cancer. Also she is at least 7 years old.
After a couple of months in "rehab" (foster care), she was brought back to the centre and put up for adoption. We applied to Animates to see if she would fit in their "special needs" category and were delighted when she was accepted into their Animates Angels programme and on the 14th of August she was sent down to their Silverdale store. The Animates Angels programme puts on a special advertising campaign around the cat , highlighting its disabilities rather than hiding them. There are many many people who want to give loving homes to these kind of animals.
I received an email from Animates on 18th August to say that Lacey had only been in store for 5 mins and was adopted by a young couple. Lacey has certainly had Angels watching over her for the last few months and I am so delighted that she has found a forever home at last.
