"S" Puppies








Sandy - Mother

Saturday, March 11, 2023


Quincy is a 2 year old, female, 53lbs, shepherd cross. 
When Quincy arrived at our faciality she was pregnant and covered in white paint. 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 on Christmas morning and ensured they were well fed, clean and healthy until they were old enough to be adopted. Her pups have all 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 would need to go to a home were she would be the only pet in the household.

This nifty girl is Nala. She is a recently spayed female, who is a one year old mixed breed. 
She is a friendly girl who is exuberant about life in general and loves people however she would do best in an only dog home.
Currently Nala is busy learning her basic manners and commands. Nala would thrive in an experienced dog home with a large yard that would be willing to continue working with her. 


 This super friendly and energetic boy is Badger! He is about 4 years old, weights 59 pounds and came to us as a Hinton stray. He would make a great companion dog because he loves people. Badger is working on his leash manners so he can be a great hiking partner for some lucky human! Badger would love an active home or a home with a large yard.

Introducing Tiny! He is humorously named Tiny as he is a 90lbs Mastiff cross. This three year old teddy bear needs a home that can devote time into daily exercise and mental stimulations, otherwise this goofy guy will find other ways to entertain himself.  He knows sit, loves treats and would be best suited for an acreage  or an active home!

Marty is a big bundle of dog who is excited about life and is elated whenever he meets someone new! He is dog compatible and enjoys his daily plays with his doggie friends.

Boarding policy clarification

The Board was forced to raise the boarding fees two months ago because of the increase in minimum wage. Upon reviewing our boarding fee structure it was decided to implement a boarding check out policy. Boarding check out is now by 11:00 a.m. daily. If you pick up your pet after 11:00 you will be charged for the day.  A check out time enables SPCA staff to clean kennels prior to the end of shift.

Sponsorship: Can't adopt? Want to help?

We have decided to offer sponsorships of the pets in our care.  Many people can't adopt a pet but they would like to support one.  By sponsoring a pet you can help pay some of the costs of the care of the dogs or cats in the care of the SPCA.

How does it work?

For a $25 donation you can sponsor a dog or cat of your choice for the duration of its stay at the SPCA. Your name will appear under the animal's picture on the blog, on the animal's kennel and on Facebook with the animal from time to time.  It can be a personal name or a company name. If you don't want your name listed it can be recorded as anonymous.

Only one sponsor per animal and first come-first sponsored. Sponsorship can be done by dropping into the SPCA between 9-1 and 6:30-8:30 daily or by calling the SPCA with your credit card.

If you have any questions please email Cathy at
