Animals of the Brant County SPCA
It takes the work of a community to help support the animals at the Brant County SPCA.
Take a scroll through some of the animals we’ve helped save together!
Zena, has found her new home! Thank you everyone for sharing her photos, getting the word out and to the staff at the shelter for taking care of her for the past 9 months. We know Zena will make her new family so happy. Thank you for opening your heart and home to our girl
Oliver is a 4 -year-old male Shih Tzu mix that joined the Brant County SPCA family as a stray on May 10th, after being found near the landfill. Oliver is about to embark on his most important mission yet- Operation Smile!
During his intake exam, there were concerns regarding his pearly whites… or lack thereof! During his initial vet visit, they identified a cyst involving his upper right canine tooth and suspected there were other unerupted teeth (meaning as he lost his baby teeth, adult teeth never grew in and are hiding out below his gums!). On May 27, 2016, X-rays confirmed 3 of 4 of his canine teeth as well as 4 incisors were impacted. The work involved to correct his condition cannot be done by local veterinarians, so Operation Smile will commence at a specialist in the Guelph area!
Oliver was scheduled for surgery on June 28, 2016.After some recovery time, Oliver soon found his new home! We are so glad Oliver got the second chance he deserved!
Eye Love Letty:
Letty the kitten was found by a member of the public on September 14th 2016, and brought into the shelter. Upon examination, it was determined Letty’s eye had suffered some form of trauma, resulting in a ruptured eye that would require immediate removal. Letty successfully underwent eye surgery Friday September 16th and is doing great! A total of $385 was raised to cover her surgery from generous members of the community. After a successful eye removal surgery, and a lot of love, Letty has left for her new home! Thank you to everyone who donated to her surgery, followed her story, and loved and cared for her along the way!
Moose, a 7 year-old Bassett Hound/Bulldog became a part of the Brant County SPCA family on September 16, 2016 after being surrendered by his previous owner. Everyone at the shelter, staff, and volunteers alike fell in love with his sweet personality, and we set out to find him the perfect home! Moose, however, had some difficulties that made his adoption a bit harder. He required special food, and allergy shots every three weeks to manage an array of allergies, and preferred the company of an adult only home. With patience and care, Moose found his forever home December 6, 2016.
Timber came to us in November 2016, after being found in a park with a badly broken leg. His leg couldn’t be saved, but as a result of your support, his leg was amputated, and he is recovering with all the love and attention he needs in his foster home before he is ready for adoption!
Bitty, the three year old Staffordshire Terrier mix came to the Brant County SPCA in November 2016. Bitty was surrendered to us by her owner as other animals in the home were not getting along with her. Due to breed specific legislation in Ontario that bans pitbull type breeds, we were unable to adopt her out close to home. Through the great work of our shelter staff, we were able to partner with the Saskatoon SPCA to transfer Bitty to their facility where she would be placed for adoption. Bitty made her cross country flight to Saskatoon January 10th 2017, where she was greeted by the SPCA’s amazing staff. Bitty only spent one day at the Saskatoon SPCA, making her tv debut, and stealing the hearts of all who met her before she found her perfect family. Bitty was adopted January 12th 2017.
