We are experiencing technical difficulties, please return shortly.

This year has been a difficult one so far, we had to say good bye to our beautiful Winnie on January 1st as she went over the rainbow bridge, then a week later I had to say goodbye to my father. It’s been tough to say the least but going forward I want to try and make this year great. For St Patrick’s Day this year I wanted to help raise some money for a local Rescue organization. I ended up baking over 200 cupcakes for a fundraiser and raised $220.00 for the Dog Rescuers Inc, in Oakville. It was a long day of baking and decorating but everyone was pleased with their purchases! I look forward to doing some more fundraising this year, all for the love of our furry friends.

This year we hope to grow awareness and encourage change whenever we can, it’s difficult to do as everyone is so busy but a little is better than nothing!

Remember to please spay & neuter you pets to help control the pet population and if you are looking for a new furry friend there are so many animals looking for their forever home at a local Rescue, shelter, Humane Society or SPCA.

 Meet your match

You could be gazing at the animal of your dreams, but you just can’t tell what she’s thinking behind that furry face. What if you knew a little something about her personality and habits before you moved in together? The Ontario SPCA’s Meet Your Match™ program, adopted from the ASPCA, wouldn’t let you go home without knowing who’s in that carrier or on that leash. 

Meet Your Match™ is the only method in existence today that evaluates an animal’s behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter’s preferences so that you take home a pet you can really click with.

Canine-ality™ and Puppy-ality™

The Meet Your Match Canine-ality/Puppy-ality assessment begins with an initial MYM SAFER® (Safety Assessment for Evaluating Rehoming) behavior screening to make sure each pooch is a good candidate for adoption. Dogs are then tested on their friendliness, playfulness, energy level, motivation and drive, and placed into one of nine color-coded Canine- or Puppy-alities. Some pooches are laid-back “Couch Potatoes,” others are curious “Busy Bees,” and then there are the action hero “Go-Getter” types.. (more…)

Mississauga Humane Society Walk a thon, Sept 14 2013

The weather was perfect for the Mississauga Humane Society walk-a-thon, the sun was shinning and the park was full of people. We are a big fan of the MHS as they do not have a shelter and rely on foster parents to take care of all their animals, which help dogs and cats adjust to a home setting. (more…)

by Christina Commisso

They’ve battled rush hour traffic to save a pup who was mere minutes from death row. They’ve arranged a flight from a remote native community to give a neglected dog a second chance at life. And they don’t discriminate – having found loving homes for chickens and goats as well. (more…)
