Ellie

Sweet Ellie is a ten year old female husky. Despite having a rough start in life and some current medical issues Ellie is a very affectionate and well mannered girl. She loves snuggling in her soft bed and enjoys short walks especially when they are with Abe her life long friend(featured below). Ellie is looking for a holiday angel who will give her a loving retirement home and possibly consider adopting Abe as well so they can live their remaining years together.

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.


Christmas gift ideas

Christmas is a time of giving and what about giving a sponsorship for the person who loves pets.  You can sponsor a dog or cat in the name of the person for $25.  The pet will get a sponsorship on their kennel and the SPCA blog as well as the SPCA's Facebook pages.

If you would like to make a donation in someone's name we can give you a letter to include in a card.

The SPCA also has a wish list, these are things that we frequently use in the shelter:

Dry dog food
Wet dog food
Puppy food
Whiskas or Purina Cat chow 
Whiskas canned pate cat food 
Purina kitten Chow
Cat toys
Durable dog toys
 

Cleaning supplies
Mr. Clean
Bleach
Paper Towel
Green garbage bags
Glad garbage bags
Liquid laundry Soap or Tide  Pods
Bounce

Office Supplies
Photocopy paper
mechanical pencils
postage stamps

Cash donations are always appreciated and we offer a charitable receipt.

Thank you and Merry Christmas from the residents, staff and volunteers of the Hinton and District SPCA
