Celebrating 130 Years at the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA!

On April 1st, we were proud to welcome friends, family, sponsors, donors and adopters to join us in celebrating 130 years of service to our community! This was the first event in a series of events in 2017 to celebrate the last 13 decades of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming the animals of Hamilton and Burlington.

We thank all who attended, especially our special guest speakers and we can’t wait to see you at one of our events this year!
