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!


This gorgeous Rottweiler was surrendered by her guardian on September 20, 2017, they could no longer care for her and they could not locate her owner. At the time she was surrendered she had an eye infection. Brandy was treated for the infection, but when the swelling came down, it was clear that she had Entropion (a genetic condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward. This can cause an eyelash or hair to irritate and scratch the surface of the eye, leading to corneal ulceration or perforation).

Thanks to donations to our Project Patchwork campaign, Brandy had her surgery on October 6, 2017 and has found her adoptive family!

Ernie & Harley 

Ernie was found as a stray on June 16th. He was badly matted and when examined it was clear he needed dentistry. Ernie is scheduled to have his surgery next month, and estimates were between $800-$1050. In the meantime, Ernie spent a day at the Dog Spa where they did an amazing job grooming him. You could tell by the spring in his step that he already felt like a new man. A big thank-you to the Dog Spa for all they do helping the dogs look their best. Ernie underwent his dental surgery August 31, 2017 and has found his new family.

Harley was found as stray on June 26th. We believe he is about 12 years old, but you would never know it to meet him. He is a loving, playful senior boy also in need of dentistry. His assessment was done on July 13th and estimates were between $645 and $890. Harley underwent his dental surgery September 1, 2017 and has also found his new family!









Jimmy was surrendered to us on May 23rd to receive medical care that he required. Upon veterinary examination, it was found Jimmy had ingested some form of item(s) that had created abdominal pain and vomiting. Jimmy underwent surgery where bits of balloon, tennis balls, and other remnants were removed. Following surgery, Jimmy quickly returned to his happy self, and found his new home June 1st, 2017! Jimmy was our first candidate to go through our new Project Patchwork Program. Project Patchwork is part of our animal care program with the goal of getting animals in need of veterinary care healthy, and ready to join our adoption program so they can find their new family.



Moe came to the Brant County SPCA March 11th 2017. He was found as a stray by a member of the public and brought to us for care. Upon examination, it was found Moe’s teeth as a senior dog were in very poor shape with periodontal disease, as well as a testicular tumour. Surgery for Moe’s teeth extraction, neuter and lump pathology quickly rose to over $1000. With your support, Moe successfully underwent dental surgery, and his neuter surgery. We were happy to recently find out the tumour, which was removed with his neuter, was benign and non-cancerous solved by his neuter! Moe has been recovering in his foster home, and has been groomed and looking handsome thanks to the Dog Spa! Your donation makes a difference in the lives of animals just like Moe. Your support means teeth can be extracted when needed, neuter surgeries and blood work can be performed, and lumps removed. Your support means Moe can be happy and healthy on his journey to finding his new home.


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

Operation Smile:

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.
