The Ontario SPCA Leeds and Grenville Animal Centre found homes for 55 animals but still looking for more.
All 55 animals have been adopted since the beginning of the iAdopt campaign in November. The campaign’s goal is to get as many animals as possible into forever homes. The centre’s Manager Marianne Carlyle says they have a goal of finding homes for 18 more animals because that’s how many animals they have in care right now.
Currently the centre has one budgie, two rabbits, two dogs and the rest are cats. Carlyle says right now is a great time to adopt because most families are able to spend time with an animal over the holiday break.
“Let’s (the family) really get the animal settled in that timing, interacting with other family members that sort of thing. And certainly, we’re encouraging people to use our meet your match survey to find the best personality that would suit their household.”
Carlyle explains the survey can be done on the centre’s website here and it has shown a decrease in animal returns since the surveys began over a decade ago. There are 18 questions in the survey to find the best animal for someone.
The centre is at 800 Centennial Road in Brockville.
