NEWMARKET, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 1, 2016) - This holiday season, give a homeless animal the gift of a loving home and a family to call their own during the national iAdopt for the Holidays adoption campaign, a program of the Ontario SPCA.

iAdopt for the Holidays, supported by Royal Canin, kicks off today and runs until Dec. 31 at participating SPCAs, Humane Societies and rescue groups nation wide. The goal is to get as many animals as possible placed into loving homes during the holiday season.

"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."

Throughout the iAdopt for the Holidays adoption drive, all cats and kittens at Ontario SPCA animal centres are available for the special adoption price of $99. All cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, come with a gift of six weeks of pet insurance and are up to date on their vaccinations. Plus, anyone who adopts in November will receive a box of Arm & Hammer Clump and Seal Complete Odor Sealing Litter, while supplies last.
