UPDATED: THANK YOU to Heather Langille and Capital City Auto Parts for this amazing donation to the Marked For Life Tattooz Tats for Cats Fundraiser!!! And to Isabelle and Torin-THANK YOU for donating $50 each from your personal savings. We love you! This brings the total raised to $4347.35!!!
UPDATED: Jason Mccaw, and his amazing team at Marked for Life Tattoos, raised $3264.35 at the 2nd Annual Tats for Cats (and dogs)!!!! THANK YOU to Jason, his team, the volunteers, the donors and everyone who came out to support us! Much love and appreciation!
Mark your calendars! August 24th is the date for this year’s “Tats for Cats” fundraising event. Last year, Jason at Marked for Life Tattoos applied 17 tattoos in a regular business day. This year, we’ll be offering some new designs to choose from (click the image at right to enlarge) but the price will stay the same - $80 per tattoo. So, start saving your allowance, comb the spare change out of the couch crevices and volunteer to do the laundry so you can check pockets for forgotten bills. We want you to support some excellent ink for an excellent cause.
Please call Jason at 471-0661 to book your "Tats for Cats" appointment - spaces are filling quickly! There will also be a BBQ and a silent auction!
The Oromocto and Area SPCA would like to thank everyone who came out on Saturday July 11th to make our Annual Yard Sale and BBQ a tremendous success!
Hope to see you here at the shelter next year!

It’s spring! And that means “Kitten Season” is once again upon us. JUNE is national “Adopt a Shelter Cat Month” and in shelters all across North America, cats and kittens are available for adoption . What’s so special about “Adopt a Shelter Cat Month”? Well, it’s a purrfect time to celebrate all things ‘cat’ and what’s not to love about that?
Stay tuned to our website and our Facebook page to see how the OSPCA will celebrate this Paws-atively cat-tacular event.
Due to popular demand, the OSPCA will be hosting a Microchip Clinic on Saturday, June 6th at the Oromocto Pet Valu store. The clinic will be run from 1pm – 3 pm. There will be a vet onsite to insert the microchips and the cost per microchip is $35.00.
Why Microchip your cat/dog? The main reason is so that should your beloved family member become lost, a microchip helps get them back home again. Moving? Keep your address information up to date with a quick phone call. We’ll give you copies of the Microchip number and the contact information for the microchip company for your records. Keeping this information with your pet’s health record is a good way to keep this info at your fingertips.
