Please consider signing the attached online petition to support the updating of the animal protection act. Canada’s animal protection legislation has not been substantively revised since 1892 and Canada is ranked below some third-world countries when it comes to its animal protection legislation.

On Saturday, February 25, NL West SPCA, Sunshine Rescue, and Friends of Rory hosted the Super Pet Adoption Event at the Corner Brook Civic Centre. The event was very well received with over 250 visitors! thank you to everyone who came to visit us and a very special thank you to everyone who volunteered to help make this day possible.
We had lots of baked goods donated by our friends for a bake sale! We raised $333 which will go towards medical care for our animals. Thank you to Clay & Cupcake for the donation of 2 dozen cupcakes, Emily Pittman with Duke of Edinburgh for making dog treats to sell, and Kim Morris, Sam Froud, Marian Ezekiel, Theresa Hynes, Ivy Sparkes, and Darlene McCurdy for Baking!
We had lots of visitors come by to show their support. The CB Winter Carnival Ambassadors and Liefling stopped in, as well as Comet and his family. Comet was adopted from our shelter and comes to all of our events. Thanks for your support!
Come meet your new best friend.
Congratulations to Marian Foster who had the winning bid of $190!
Due to the shelter being over capacity, we will not be admitting any new cats until further notice.
If you need to re-home an animal, we will assist by posting a photo of your animal and contact information as an outside adoption. We hope that many of our cats will soon be adopted so that we can start admitting animals as soon as possible.
We are in need of some supplies:
– bleach (used daily to disinfect and clean cats cages)
– disposable exam gloves (used daily for wearing while cleaning cat cages and litter)
– clumping litter (with so many cats, we use a lot!)
– dry cat and kitten food
– Presidents Choice grain-free dry cat food (we have a few over weight cats that need this!)
– cat treats (we don’t really need this, but the cats say otherwise!)
NL West SPCA has an account at Scotia Recycling. You can ask for your recyclables to be donated to us or if you have 1-3 bags, you can use the express deposit to drop off recyclables. Simply type our phone number into the kiosk to print off stickers for your bags, then leave them in the box to be applied to our account when staff receive it! No long line up!
Thank you for your support.
