Meet Hudson


In June 2012, a male boxer mix named Harvey came to the HBSPCA through Hamilton Animal Services. His leg had previously been broken and had healed badly, and the day following his intake, the HBSPCA Companion Animal Hospital removed the injured leg, and provided Harvey with all necessary vaccinations.

Harvey went into a loving foster home to recover from his surgery and was adopted by his foster family in July 2012. Unfortunately, Harvey was not a good fit in this home, and his family reluctantly brought him back to the shelter. However, Harvey was such a sweet boy they he was re-adopted four days later!

Meet Rachel



This resilient kitten came to the HBSPCA as an owner surrender in early January.

A few days after her initial exam and spay surgery, Rachel was very lethargic and was not moving around much. The HBSPCA staff did a number of tests to see what could be ailing this small kitten. Rachel had a number of small issues, such as roundworm and conjunctivitis (pink eye) and required some time to rest and heal in foster care.

After some time to heal, Rachel was feeling so much better that she began to run around, which is when her foster family noticed that she was limping and holding her front paw up. In early February, the HBSPCA consulted with an orthopedic specialist who recommended that Rachel’s leg be removed. Rachel once again, healed in foster care for three weeks this time.

Rachel has made a phenomenal recovery, and found her forever home on St. Patrick’s day. Lucky girl!
