Meet Georgia

Sometimes there isn’t a long, sad story. Sometimes, an animal just had the misfortune of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. And we are always thrilled to be able to tell the tale of a short shelter stay, and a healthy, happy ending.

Georgia is one such story. Georgia came to the HBSPCA shelter in May 2014 from Hamilton Animal Services (HAS). It was at a time when, due to a successful adoption campaign, the HBSPCA had the space to acquire a large group of dogs from HAS and give them a second chance. Georgia is a 1.5 year old Pekingese girl with a perfect bill of health.

“Waiting” – A Tribute to Nathan Cirillo

The following message is from the blog of Scotlund Haisley, President and founder of Animal Rescue Corps in Washington, DC. The proceeds from the sale of this painting will directly benefit the animals of the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA.

“Waiting” – Honoring the Compassion of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo

Last week, Canadian soldier, Corporal Nathan Cirillo, was murdered in an act of terrorism in that nation’s capital of Ottawa. A country lost a soldier, father, son, and hero. One part of the story that particularly touched me is that Nathan Cirillo was also a hero to the animals.  I did not have the honor of knowing Nathan but he was a brother in the field of animal rescue. When he was not on duty protecting his country, he was protecting animals. Driven by compassion, he rescued animals having them medically treated and feeding them as he brought them back to life. He fulfilled his promise to them that they would never suffer again by placing them into loving adoptive homes. Two of his rescues, Kiya and Beau found love and sanctuary with Nathan and his human family.

Meet Sasha

How could trouble look so cute?! This bundle of energy came to the HBSPCA from an affiliate rescue group with her mom and three sisters when she was just a newborn pup. This group was just one of the many animals who benefit from the time and talents of dedicated volunteer foster families at the HBSPCA. These puppies were going to need lots of time to grow and learn, so they stayed in their foster home for two months! Once they were strong enough, they visited the HBSPCA companion animal hospital to be spayed, vaccinated, flea treated and microchipped. These “little women” – Jo, Beth, Meg and Amy were so cute, they each found their forever homes within two days of becoming available!

Jo – now “Sasha” is living the good life with her big sister, Shadow, and the family cat (who she is still learning to get along with). This very active girl spent her first summer at the cottage, swimming and running. She is currently in dog obedience classes and enjoying the new falling autumn leaves in her backyard.

Look for Sasha in the 2015 HBSPCA ‘Rescued’ Calendar!
