We adopted "Blackie," a 7.5 yr old Black Lab back in November 2007. His name is now Jack and he is pushing 11 y.o. but still a puppy at heart. He loves to play tug and fetch-but only inside! He can't say no to any food and makes himself well known around meal time.

We can't believe how great Jack is and we are so thankful we made the decision to adopt an older dog. We love him just like he is a member of our family and don't know what we would do without his lap-dog like snuggles and wildly wagging tail. Thank you SPCA for all you do!

Our former Jack Russell (appropriately named “Jack”) died in June of last year after having lived with us for five years. We had adopted Jack from the SPCA at the age of ten and he gave us the best five years of his life in warmth and companionship

We recently adopted a Parsons rough-coat Jack Russell named Max on Dec 23, 2010 and he is doing extremely well as you can see from the picture. He’s turning out to be a very good therapy dog after having lost our beloved SPCA-adopted dog last year.

We just wanted to thank everyone who donates their time, money and goods for the animals. We also want to thank SPCA staff (especially Gail Farr and Sue Beatty) for allowing us to have Max in return to enrich our own lives.

God Bless You


My husband and I wanted to send a quick note and a few pictures.  We adopted an all black kitty by the name of "Momma Mia" about 2 years ago. We also just adopted a new friend for her, a gray and white kitty named" Autumn" in January 2011.  Now that "Mia" has a friend, she seems to be a much more active kitty.  They play and chase each other all the time, plus take turns sun-bathing in the sunny spots by the bay window, and playing with ice cubes in the water bowls.  I couldn't have asked for 2 better "furry children".  They are such a joy to have, and we're lucky to have found them. The technician who helped us pick out Autumn was such a Huge Help!  A big thank you to her!  Autumn fits in our house just perfect!  You All do such a great job... keep up the good work!!!  


I adopted Bingley (formerly Ben) as a Christmas gift to myself, when he was a 3 month old kitten.  It's just the two of us in my little apartment, but he is so happy now!  My dad and I even built a cat tree together for him to play on.  Here's a few pictures of him.  It was hard to choose just a few, because he's so cute!

Thanks, and I know I'll be back for a playmate soon! :)
