Giving Tuesday – Give the Gift of Love
Today is one of the most important days of the year for abused and neglected animals: Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by people who want to make the holidays better for those in need.
On Tuesday, November 29th, 2016, Giving Tuesday will be celebrated! Giving Tuesday is a nationwide push to kick off the holiday season with a day of giving back to causes that matter most to you. Before the hustle and bustle of the holidays sets in, we hope you’ll take a moment to make a gift to the Brant County SPCA.
With your help, we can save more animals like Oliver…
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 Brantford landfill as a stray. Unfortunately, no one came to claim Oliver.
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 could not be done by local veterinarians, so Oliver was lucky enough to be able to travel to a specialist in Guelph.
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! Oliver really hit the jack pot with his new family, especially his human sister!
Without the support of our donors we could not help out dogs like Oliver.
