This holiday season, give a homeless animal the gift of a loving family to call their own during the national iAdopt for the Holidays adoption campaign, a program of the Ontario SPCA.

iAdopt for the Holidays, supported by Royal Canin, has kicked off at the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre and runs until Dec. 31 at participating SPCAs, Humane Societies and rescue groups nation wide. The goal is to get as many animals as possible placed into loving homes during the holiday season. Last year, over 4,000 animals from across Canada found their forever homes during the iAdopt for the Holidays campaign.

“Nothing brings joy to a home like the love of an adopted animal who has found a family to call their own,” says Erin Belsher, Community Development Coordinator, Barrie Animal Centre. “And with people having time off from work and being home together as a family, the holidays are a great time to welcome a new furry companion and help them get settled.”

All adopters who bring home a cat or kitten from the Barrie Animal Centre during the month of November will receive a box of Arm & Hammer™ Slide™ Easy Clean-Up Clumping Litter, while supplies last. All cats and kittens are spayed or neutered, microchipped, come with a gift of one month of pet insurance and are up to date on their vaccinations. The Barrie Animal Centre also has dogs and small animals waiting patiently to be adopted.

Adopt a pet from the Barrie Animal Centre during the iAdopt for the Holidays campaign and your name will be entered for a chance to WIN free pet food for a year from Royal Canin.
