Making 2019 A Great Year for SPCA

Officially as of December 1st, 2018 the Welland SPCA and the Niagara Falls Humane Society have become the Niagara SPCA and Humane Society!

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 Pet: May

May is aproximately 2-3 years old. She was found in the constuction site and the builders said she had always been there so we suppose she had been born in the street. When May got to the vet clinic first time she was so stressed that she hid herself under a table and wouldnt go out even for cheese that she actually adores. The doctor said that she had been beaten as she was afraid of quick movements when people waved hands next to her head or loud speech. Unknown environment made her paralized with fear. But then she got used to warm bed, good food and regular walking on the leash. For about a month she has been living with a dog handler and now she knows different commands and is getting on well with all dogs. We dont know anything about cats but i think she can be taught to luve with them peacefully as the handler says she is really bright and quick at learning. May is a gentle human oriented girl. She loves walking, communicating with people and is perfectly ready to meet her 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.
