iAdopt for the Holidays

The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society’s iAdopt for the Holidays campaign, presented by Swiffer®, runs until Dec. 31 at Ontario SPCA and Humane Society animal centres across the province to celebrate adoption and find loving forever homes for as many animals as possible.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Adopt! Animals adopted through the Ontario SPCA are spayed or neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. In addition, every adopter will go home with Swiffer®’s Get Pet Ready Guide and a Swiffer® Duster™ Pet Heavy Duty Starter Kit as they bring home their new furry friend this holiday season.
  • Enter “Ontario’s Cutest Adopted Animal Photo Contest” below for your chance to win amazing weekly prizes from Swiffer® and the Ontario SPCA or our Grand Prize of a $500 gift card for PetSmart, to cross all the items off your furry friend’s list.
  • Shop Give back to animals in need, while finding the purr-fect gift for that special someone on your holiday list, by shopping the Ontario SPCA’s Paws & Give™ online store.

Adoption tips

If you’re considering adopting an animal, or have already adopted, browse our adoption tip blogs for information about everything from choosing the right companion to teaching (in a positive way!) the behaviours you’d like to see more – or less often. Careful consideration before adopting, including research and planning, plus plenty of love, patience and a sense of humor, will foster a strong and loving relationship that will make you friends for life!
