Crowding the Driver | Dogs on Drivers Laps Is A Bad Idea | Welland SPCA

You see it all the time. A little dog sitting on the drivers lap with his head out the window and you ask yourself, what would happen if the airbag deployed right now? We interviewed a veterinarian, a retired medical doctor, and a police officer about the potential consequences from their own professional point of view. Thanks to Ontario Provincial Police Highway Safety Division, Dr. Magee and our own Dr. Carol for helping us with this message! Shout out to Center For Pet Safety for helping with video footage.

Feature Pets

Meet Buddy

  • Breed: Beagle / Mix
  • Age: 2y 7m Gender: Male
  • Color: White / Black
  • Spayed/Neutered: Yes
  • Size: Medium


Buddy’s a very sweet boy with some anxiety. He is high energy and will need loads of exercise, with obedience training strongly recommended. Being a beagle, if he catches a scent (which beagles always do), he could be off like a shot! Learning how to manage his energy & instincts is very important for his new family. We don’t know at this point how Buddy is with other animals or children. Small animals may not be a good idea in his new forever home. Buddy’s hanging out with us at the Port Colborne Animal Shelter if you would like to come meet him.
**UPDATE** – This sweet boy is learning quite well how to walk properly on the leash, sit & has the ability to learn so much more! Do you have what it takes to give this special dog his forever home?? Come on over today & meet Buddy to see if he’s the perfect dog for you!


  • Breed: Dwarf
  • Age: 7m 7d Gender: Male
  • Colour: White
  • Spayed/Neutered: No
  • Size: Small

Boo was brought in as her owner was allergic to him. He’s a lovely rabbit who is ok with being held and loves to explore. He’s chilling at the Port Colborne Animal Shelter while he awaits his new forever home! Come on over & meet this handsome fella if you’ve been thinking about adding a bunny to your family!

Coyotes in the community

Coyotes, like other wild animals, sometimes come into conflict with humans.

Since migrating to Ontario from the west over 100 years ago, coyotes have adapted well to urban environments and can now be found in both rural and urban settings. Changes in land use, agricultural practices, weather and natural food shortages may contribute to increased coyote sightings in your community.

Pretty clean. They had around 12 dogs when I was there. They take care of them. Good space, and good outdoor space. This is a good facility.

Got our wonder pooch from here back in June. She's a perfect fit. The vet tech we were dealing with was amazing and friendly. We put the application in on a Saturday morning and got the call just before they were closing for the day. Highly reccomend looking at the humane society for any animal you may want. They all deserve homes.
