Coal was a stray living in a field just outside of Calgary with his bother Jett. Thanks to K9 Recovery Service both Coal and Jett were transferred to our facility. Coal has made great strides in his self confidence and trust in others. Right now he is working on just being a dog! He has started to show interest in toys and playing ball. Coal has no known history with cats and gets along with dogs that are calm.
If you are local to Hinton you may have seen (in person or online) a dog that was roaming around the area. The public was concerned because he was underweight, had hair loss, dry skin and a bad ear infection. Well thanks to the Town of Hinton Peace Officers. Skoal was transferred to the Hinton SPCA after not being claimed. Since staying here and getting the appropriate care and vet attention needed Skoal has been showing us what a good natured boy he is. Skoal is happiness when he is with people. Skoal walks well on leash, will get in and out of the car upon directions and knows the command sit. Skoal's neuter is pending but we are still taking applications at this time.

Rumor is good with other dogs and has no known history with cats. He would do best in a home without young children. He is however great with responsible teenagers.
Meet Rumor, he is a friendly, neutered male. Rumor has had an incredible journey so far. When he came to us he was extremely under weight and required hip surgery. Together with the Hinton SPCA staff Rumor worked hard at his post op rehabilitation and weight gain. He is now a happy go lucky dude looking for his forever home. Rumor will require moderate exercise, a walk around the block and time in a nice backyard would be perfect for this boy! He walks well on leash and knows his basic commands. Rumor was transferred to us from our friends at Second Chance Animal Rescue.

Quincy is a 2 ½ year old, female, 53lbs, pitty/ shepherd cross.
When Quincy arrived at our facility she was pregnant and covered in white paint.
Thankfully she was rescued and transferred to us by Second Chance Animal Rescue before she would have been forced to have her puppies outside in -35 temperatures. She had her puppies at the Hinton SPCA on Christmas morning and was a great mom who ensured that her puppies were well fed, clean and healthy until they were old enough to be adopted. All of her pups have found their forever homes and now it is Quincy's turn!
Since living at the SPCA we have learned a lot about Quincy. She is extremely loving with people and walks excellent on leash. She will need to go to a home where she would be the only pet in the household. Quincy knows the command sit and is working on other commands. She loves people and will thrive in a stable home .
