In this episode of “Stories From the Frontline Staff,” we interview Ontario SPCA Investigations & Communication Officer Agent Brad Dewar about the story that has touched his heart the most – Rocky’s story.
Rocky’s rescue is an inspiring story with a great ending. To learn more about Rocky’s rescue, please visit www.rockysrescue.ca.
According to www.worldspayday.org, “World Spay Day shines a spotlight on spay/neuter as a proven means of saving the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street. World Spay Day provides a unique opportunity for everyone who cares about animals to join together toward a common goal —a comprehensive global, united effort to end the euthanasia and suffering of companion animals.”
Team Depot from Pembroke’s Home Depot recently renovated the cat adoption areas at the Ontario SPCA Renfrew County Branch! With their help, not only are the cat adoption areas now a fun and inviting space for potential adopters, but they will be able to provide an even higher quality of life for the cats in the Branch’s care.
Thanks to Home Depot’s generosity, the Branch is now able to house six cats in the intake area and eight cats on their adoption floor. This is an increase from five cats in the intake area and six cats on the adoption floor. Each cat will now be given at least 10 square feet of space to roam around. This extra space, in addition to the easy to clean and sanitize work stations, will truly help the Branch run more efficiently and help make the cats’ experience more enjoyable.
We wanted to take a moment to thank Home Depot and their dedicated staff for their great work! Everyone was a pleasure to work with. The quality of their work and their dedication to getting the job done well exceeded expectations.
We also want to thank the Branch’s volunteers for all their hard work. May of them stayed late and came in the next day to make sure the work was finished.
