The HBSPCA has a program called "Meet Your Match", which simply is designed so animals are paired with the people who would be best fitted. They use tools to see the kind of lifestyle people have so they can match them with the PURRfect animal; based on behaviour and interests.

Since it is the HOLIDAY season, I asked about animals being gifted as presents....

Now for an amazing STAT :

  • The HBSPCA finds FURever homes for about 2,000 animals per year
