Freda is reserved.


Freda is a 1 year old, 97lbs, Newfoundler. She was a transfer from The Alberta SPCA. Freda is extremely affectionate and gentle. She is looking for a home that will help improve her confidence. Freda responds well to praise, she was afraid to go down the stairs but with positive reinforcement from the Hinton SPCA staff she was able to conquer that fear. She is compatible with cats and other dogs. This is common for Newfoundlers as they tend to have a low prey drive. Freda also like children and would be a great family dog!

Jett & Coal (Currently Unavailable for Adoption)


Jett and Coal were spotted in a ditch that backed onto a large field. They were extremely thin from a lack of food and having to fend for themselves in Alberta's climate. Luckily for these two handsome pups, K9 Recovery Service had their back and work hard gaining their trust enough to crate them and bring them to us. K9 Recovery documented their journey on Facebook and even had a vote on what to name them! 

Since Jett and Coal's arrival they have been adjusting to their new lifestyle. They enjoy their warm beds and reliable meal times. They have a long way to go with their socialization but we are thankful that they will have a chance to live a life with all the comforts a dog deserves.      

Olaf (Currently Unavailable for Adoption)


Olaf is a ten month old, male, shepherd cross.   

Olaf came from a home with many other dogs on the property where he was the bottom of the pack.

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 caththom2000@yahoo.com.
