Meet Fantasia

Not very often is there a kitten who stays longer than a few days at the HBSPCA shelter. When we refer to “long term stay” animals, they are almost always seniors. But sweet “Fantasia” had a bit of a wait ahead of her. Fantasia came to us when she was just 8 months old from Hamilton Animal Services in May 2014. Day after day, people passed her by. She spent her time with HBSPCA volunteers and staff, lapping up affection and play time. But it wasn’t until September 2014 that the right family came for a visit to the shelter.

Fantasia needed a quiet home as loud noises startled her. This family had just the home for her and she is now fitting right in!

“Once she found her food and litter

Meet Bear

On a cold February 2014 day, 10 dogs were removed from a home and taken into custodial care at the HBSPCA. The dogs had all experienced severe neglect and had been largely confined to the house. They were afraid of people and they required veterinary care for various medical issues, including dentistry, deworming and flea treatments. The most fearful of these dogs was Bear. During the rescue, Bear had to be brought in on a ‘catch-pole’ because he would not allow for humans to touch him.
