Shhhh!!! Have you received a gift for Christmas or any other time of the year and you simply don’t want it or have one already and don’t know what to do with it? Why not re-gift it. The SPCA uses these gifts for gift baskets, gift bags or items for our online auctions. You can easily drop off your gifts at the shelter anytime from 12-2 daily or give Lisa a call at 891-1003. If you drop off your item at the shelter please include a note that it is new and it is for the auction and mark Lisa’s name on it. If not, it ends up in the second-hand bin.
All items for the auction needs to be brand new, not opened and never used.
We have many items at our shelter that are in excellent condition (some new) that we have for sale. Drop by the shelter from 12-2 to check out our selection.
Chase: Male, Terrier, setter lab mix. Arrived Nov 15/17 @6 mos old
Chase rightfully named by his previous owner, Chase loves to play with the other dogs at the shelter. He particularly enjoys his time in the play yard with his friends. Quickly maturing into a little gentleman, Chase has learned patience, politeness and how to build friendships. He’d be a great dog to accompany an existing pet or a busy family.
Chase will be neutered Jan 31/18
Blue: Male, Arrived Nov 24/17 @10 weeks
Blue named for his blue eye not for his disposition, Blue takes some time to warm up in a crowd but likes a cuddle when the atmosphere is quite and the visitors are familiar.
Hazel: Female. Arrived Nov 24/17 @10 weeks
Hazel has one hazel eye and one blue eye. Almost identical to her brother, Hazel is a little shy in a crowd but warms up quickly one on one.
Jade came into the Burin SPCA as a scared kitten when she was approximately 3 months old. The SPCA environment was a little too hectic for Jade so she is currently staying in a foster home. Since going into a foster home, Jade has turned into the cuddly loving cat that we knew she was.
Jade is a sweet cat and loves to cuddle. She likes lots of attention and will become your best friend — just don’t sneak up on her, she is a little nervous at first. She takes a little while to adjust but once she does she becomes very friendly.
She is a sweet, happy little girl that deserves a safe, warm home where she can play and be cuddled.
Jade came into the SPCA nearly two years ago. This year for Christmas, Jade is looking for her forever home!!
Myles, Male neutered.
Myles, so sweet and kind, is very lonely now that all his roommates have found such great new families to care for them. He hates being returned to his room now that it feels so empty and doesn’t want us to leave him there alone.
We were very successful finding awesome homes for our other mature spayed and neutered cats and Myles is also available for the basic shelter fee of $50.
Charlie will be neutered and needs his teeth cleaned. His appointment is November 10.
Dogs generally no matter how gentle they are, show some aggression when a situation arises that scares or threatens them; a stranger coming up the driveway, an unfamiliar dog on their turf. Charlie seems to have been born without the ability to anger.
He walks up to kennels and has no idea that the barking dog inside there is protecting its territory. The dog is usually dumbfounded when Charlie approaches, wagging his tail like he’s an old friend dropping by for a visit. Quickly the dog learns, Charlie is no threat. He seems to get along with every dog he meets.
He almost instantly puts even the most cautious cat at ease. He is absolutely non-invasive and leaves the decision to approach to the cat. He’s an absolute doll with people.
Charlie’s premature greying masks his youthful energy and he has been estimated to be about 6 years old. Charlie rarely barks except when it’s time for his walk. He does a little jump and an excited “beagle bae” by the door. He loves to play with other dogs and he and Thunder wear each other out, wrestling in the exercise yard.
If you speak to or hold him abruptly Charlie stiffens and cowers. It’s very sad to think that an animal that only knows to treat others with kindness has learned to expect to be mistreated. Charlie needs to feel safe in a loving home and is available for adoption.
Charlie has been examined and will need to be neutered and have some work done on his teeth. We think Charlie is well worth the investment into his health.
We are currently looking for donations toward his care which is estimated to be a minimum of $800.00.
