NEWMARKET, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 4, 2015) - The Ontario SPCA and participating societies across Canada, invite you to take part in the national pet adoption drive, "iAdopt for the Holidays", supported by Royal Canin.

This week marks the launch of the "iAdopt for the Holidays" campaign, which will run through to the end of the year at participating SPCAs, Humane Societies and Rescue Groups nation wide, with the goal of getting as many animals placed into loving forever homes during the holiday season as possible.

"With people having time off from work and being home together as a family, the holidays are a great time to welcome a new furry companion into your home," says Tanya Firmage, Chief of Humane Programs and Community Outreach, Ontario SPCA. "Visit your local Ontario SPCA Animal Centre to take part in iAdopt for the Holidays and change an animal's life this holiday season."
