Keiko


Keiko sponsored by Charlotte Haston

Keiko is also sponsored by Gerard Redmond, Mrs. Wallace's Grade 7 Health Class
Keiko is a beautiful, well mannered, Great Pyrenees cross.  He loves treats and attention.  He is great friends with Zeus.  Keiko is very skinny under all that fur and his knee caps are not staying in place (luxating patella) which means he will need surgery on both knees. That will be done before an  adoption is finalized.

Mickey Blue Eyes

Sponsored by Inuk Kowalchuk

Mickey Blue Eyes is also sponsored by Gerard Redmond, Mrs. Wallace's Grade 7 Health Class. 
Meet Mickey Blue Eyes, he is another one of the Milk River Five.  Mickey is likely a Sheep Dog/Irish Wolfhound cross. He loves to play with other dogs.  He is a little shy around new people but warms up quickly when you offer him treats.  Mickey has also found is voice and likes to hear it.

Zeus

Zeus is sponsored by Myles Mullen

Zeus is also sponsored by Gerard Redmond, Mrs. Wallace's Grade 7 Health Class.

Zeus is an Irish Wolfhound cross. He is about 2 years old.  Zeus is busy learning everything as he was  rescued by the Alberta SPCA from the Milk River animal seizure.  Zeus came into us very matted and extremely filthy.  After several hours of grooming we found this gorgeous guy underneath all the fur.  Zeus is extremely thin, about 30 pounds underweight.

Zeus is the poster dog for the Alberta SPCA and the dogs of the Milk River animal cruelty seizure. The transformation of Zeus has been amazing!

To follow the progress of the Milk River Five (we have five dogs from Milk River) join us on Facebook (the page that has the SPCA building as the picture).

Dutchess

Duchess is sponsored by Dawn and Tony Haston

Duchess is a three year old female rotti mix. She came to the SPCA with a litter of puppies, they all have homes and now Duchess needs a home of her own.  She needs an owner with a firm but gentle hand.  She is not good with some other dogs - especially little ones.  Duchess has shown interest in cats but she will leave them alone when corrected. She is very good on leash and loves treats.

All of our dogs touch our hearts but Duchess has a very special place for our staff and volunteers.  We are looking for a very special home for her and we are very particular as to her new forever home.    Breed experience would be an asset.

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.

Volunteer Opportunities

The SPCA is currently looking for assistance with bottle sorting.  The volunteering includes moving bottles in the SPCA van (you must have a driver's license) to the bottle depot, sorting and counting bottles.  Some bags and boxes are heavy so a good back is an asset. Hours are flexible. If you are interested please contact Cathy at 780.817.1075.

Bottle Drive

The SPCA is holding our annual bottle drive but we are doing it a little differently this year.  We are asking  that people with a small amount of bottles drop them at the SPCA at their convience.  For larger loads pick up can be arranged by calling Cathy at 780.817.1075.

The SPCA uses bottle money to help pay for veterinary care, including spays and neuters for the animals in our facility.
