Extra collar or harness as well as an extra leash
Photocopies of medical records and a waterproof container with a two-week supply of any medicine

SPCA Inspector out and about improving animal welfare
Cat rescue

Our inspector had an emergency call out. A cat was stuck under a drain grill in the town square of St. Georges. It is a mystery on how the cat got in the drain. The grill was very heavy to lift by hand so a call out to the Co-operation of St. Georges was placed. They assisted with a fork lift and removed the drain grill. The cat had no injuries was a happy cat once rescued. 

Thank you to Chris, our Inspector, and the Co-operation of St. Georges for looking out for the cat's welfare




Animal Hero Kids

What does an Animal Hero Kid do?

The mission of Animal Hero Kids is to foster empathy and kindness in children and young people by encouraging and recognizing compassionate and courageous acts that
 help all species of animals.

Thank you: Robin Selley raised donations instead  of accepting birthday gifts. Great job Robin for raising animal welfare awareness in our community.

Dogs for Adoption

As an animal shelter, the SPCA provides a safe-haven for animals in need of a home and an adoption service for abandoned, abused or neglected animals. In an average year, the Shelter finds homes for some 350 different animals.

All cats,rabbits and dogs are spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter for their new home.

Adopt a shelter cat today!

Have you been by to visit our newly renovated cat social room?

Unfortunately some people have to surrender their cats due to moving, leaving the island, finances; the list goes on. 
We make it our priority to make sure every cat that comes in through our doors is healthy and adoptable. 
While here they are very spoiled and live in our cat social room where they have cat trees to climb, beds, toys and now a fabulous fenced in outside enclosure.  





Bermuda SPCA Education Program







When you teach a child to be kind to animals
You help pave the way to a brighter future for all living beings

The SPCA feels that education is key in prevention of cruelty, neglect and irresponsible pet ownership. The efforts of our Humane Education Department are focused on teaching the community the value of animals and their needs.

The SPCA hosts camps during  school breaks. 

This summer we had a record number of 80 + campers attend.

Our camp was themed around becoming Animal Advocates and focused on the Five Freedoms for animals. We learnt how to read dogs' body language, explored animal concerns in Bermuda and learnt about the role of the SPCA Inspector and how to investigate cruelty. This is an awesome camp for kids with a passion for animals. 


Halloween camp is fast approaching - October 23 - 27

Celebrate fall at the Bermuda SPCA!
Let's explore  Halloween myths with animals.
Enjoy a full tour, scavenger hunt, carve/decorate pumpkins,
animal presentations, special guests, interactive games, and fun Halloween crafts.
 

Happy Endings!

Found their forever home!! 

Brian

I now think that I must be the luckiest dog!
I have settled into my new home where I am totally spoiled.
I get loads of walks every day and am even getting used to the cat!

Between the walks and the cat I use up all my energy and I have had lots of pictures taken of me sleeping - who would have thought? 



Hundreds of animals need a hero. 
Be one today! 
Do you have great charity fundraising ideas? 
We are seeking people who enjoy fundraising 

If you are a passionate animal lover, consider  fundraising to help support the Bermuda SPCA.  The financial assistance you provide could aid the animals that have already gone through hardship. With a little community engagement, you can provide funds to house and feed animals before they're adopted plus bring awareness about animal welfare through education.

These are some great ideas that can start the ball rolling:
  • Hold a photo contest
  • Hold a dog walk/dog bath
  • Sponsor an animal-themed art contest
  • Bake sale
  • Wine tasting
  • Host a community event 
We need YOU to help organize and coordinate our annual fundraising plan and liaise
 with staff and the Committee of Management.

Contact us today and we'd be happy to discuss this opportunity with you -  Michele Lawrence - mlawrence@logic.bm
