Simply plan to supply some delicious treats, and then invite co-workers, friends and family to attend in exchange for a donation to your SPCA or Humane Society of choice. It’s a super fun and easy way to “bake a difference” for the animals in your community who need you most.

It’s always sad when an animal’s owner passes away and the animal is left on its own. That’s what happened to Ruckus. This sweet senior dog came to us in May as a stray, but we later found out that his owner had died, leaving Ruckus by himself. Ruckus was a gentle soul who loved attention. He quickly became the front office mascot and liked to greet people when they came into the shelter. Although about 10 years old, his gray muzzle was the only thing that gave a hint of his age. He loved to play and cuddle. Sadly, though, his age worked against him, as many people are not looking to adopt an older animal.

On March 3rd, 2015, our OSPCA agent seized a cat who had been left without food or water in an apartment building. She was immediately assessed by our veterinary care staff. Her skin was scaly, her fur was coarse, her nose was swollen, and it was observed that her right eye was injured. Now affectionately known as Kate, this sweet girl seemed to have a number of medical conditions. After consultation with several veterinarians, it was determined that her eye injury was a result of some sort of trauma. We don’t know Kate’s story, but it was clear that she needed a new home and a second chance in life.
