In an effort to help more animals find loving homes, the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society is hosting an adoption event with reduced adoption fees at its animal centres across the province this coming weekend.

On Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1, the Ontario SPCA will be reducing adoption fees by 20 per cent at its 12 animal centre locations province wide.

If you’ve been thinking of adopting, now is the purr-fect time to welcome an animal into your life, the organization said in a news release.

“We are reaching capacity at our animal centres as more animals are coming into our care, and they are staying with us longer before they get adopted,” said Edward Michel, manager at the Ontario SPCA Barrie Animal Centre.

“Our goal with this adoption event is to find loving homes for as many animals as possible so that we have the capacity to take in more animals who need our help.”

Animals adopted from the Ontario SPCA are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and they go home with food from Royal Canin to help ensure a smooth transition into their new home, the SPCA said.
