Honey has made the best addition to our family! She enjoys playing with all of her new toys but especially playing with her new human sisters! she is the sweetest soul and has added nothing but pure happiness to our family. Thank you to the FMSPCA for taking care of Honey and all her medical needs until she found her forever home with us!
We adopted pickles in 2018 and Piper in 2020. They are the light of our lives and complete our family. Pickles is timid and more serious. She loves a good walk and getting bum rubs. We adore her as she’s our baby. Piper is the goofball! She’s the most loving and silly turkey. Nonstop is Piper’s MO, she wants to play 24/7 and lives for belly rubs and all the snacks. They are the pure love and sunshine when you need it, we can’t imagine our lives without them!
Matilda is the queen of the household and truly the boss of her siblings (3 other cats). She is all sass but twice as sweet. Matilda loves lounging in the sun and snack time. We love how seamlessly she blends into our family and makes us complete.
Shelby loves running and biking, she is only 4 months old and is fully potty trained. She is a social butterfly when she see others dogs and kids and is always a happy dog. She is already very protective over my 7 year old and they best friends. She keeps us active and on our toes. She is a joy.
Our Boy Gunner has brought so much joy, love and laughter into our home. He has made our “house” feel more like a home and our hearts so full. Gunners favorite toys are his lambchop squeaky and his ball that dispenses treats. He also enjoys playing with his doggy friends, going for walks and cuddling up on the couch or bed with us. We’re so lucky to have Gunner and to give him his FURever home. He is so smart that he learned how to use the doggy door on the first day home and loves to give us cute puppy eyes to ask for his treats.
We adopted Bandit in June 2020, he has added so much love and happiness to our home! He loves playing with his toys, watching birds out the window, going outside in his kitty harness, and following us around the house! He is a very chatty meow meow that is incredibly smart!
We adopted Cammi after moving back into our house after the fire. Cammi was born at the SPCA. My son Chace loved her the minute he set eyes on her! She is a wonderful, loving dog. She plays with Chace and sleeps with him, and always has him in her sight. She is goofy and makes us all laugh! We love Cammi
We adopted Jewel ten years ago, when she was 9 months old. Jewel is an Australian Kelpie and is intelligent. She knows her commands and is very obedient. Catching her frisbee and going on walks, are her favourite things to do! Our kids are grown up now, so Jewel is the princess in our house. She is a great passenger when we go flying. She is protective and loyal, and we cannot imagine our lives without her!
Olive (formerly Chili) is a huge fan of tuna. Straight out of the can, tuna flavoured food, tuna flavoured treats – you name it, she loves it. She loves any toy that has feathers or makes noise, but she still chooses bottle caps or strings. Olive was a timid little kitty when we first brought her home, but now she’s a huge cuddle bug, very vocal, with a silly, hyper personality. Her older fur-sister is still trying to figure her out, but we can’t imagine not having her with us now! Thank you FMSPCA!
We are so lucky that we got to adopt Bailey. She is the most well behaved, lovable pup. She loves napping in the weirdest positions and has very active dreams. She loves walks, being the sunshine on the deck, and chasing her ball around batting it around with her paws like they are hands. She is such a good fit for our family with her EXTREMELY laid back personality. She is so quiet, when she does bark she catches even herself off guard. Again we are so glad we adopted her and we love and spoil her all the time!
Bailey loves to swim but hates baths, moose burger mixed with her kibble, getting to sleep on all the things, and riding in the sxs. She has been my best friend for twelve years, moved across the country with me twice, and licked all the tears away. She loves big and we love her just as much!
Harper loves cheese & her human siblings. She loves going for walks and cuddles. Her favourite thing is chasing her humans down when they have food and trying to snag a bite or 7. She has adjusted very well to her forever home and responds well to her new name. She was very timid of the car at first but now jumps in with excitement ready to take on the next adventure! We love having her as part of our family.
On Sept 23, 2008 we took this sweet pup home from the Spca. His name there was Bear which then became Riley. He lived a life full of snuggles, wrestling with his doggie brother, stolen table food, and yummy dog treats. On Dec 22, 2021 we said goodbye to our old boy after a wonderful 13+ years.
I adopted Freya in 2019 and she immediately became my cuddle buddy! I decided in 2020 that she needed a sister, so I adopted Juno! The two have been inseparable since, and bring so much life to the house! Thank you FMSPCA for giving my two fur babies a second chance at a happy life, with all the toys, treats, and cuddles a kitty could want!
Where to begin. I was lucky to come in on May 24, 2008 to look at getting a kitty and Daphne was the last kitty I had looked at. She was so friendly when I met her and said with tears in my eyes your coming home with me. 2 days later on May 26th I received a call saying Daphne was ready to go home with me. She was a wonderful delight and yes we had a hard times starting off but that was overcome. She had 2 great years in Ft. Mcmurray until we moved back to Newfoundland in December 2010. Daphne was more then a kitty she was my therapy cat, my protector, a member of the family and more so my very best friend for 13 & 1/2 years. She and I were so much more then A pet and her owner. She was always watching out for me, she was always spoiled with love, hugs, kisses, treats & toys. Every day I would go to work and tell her I would be home after work or if I was going to be late or something and she always knew where I was and I always said you look after dads house and see you after work. Every day I came home she always greeted me and she knew she was going to get lots of attention, hugs and kisses. My best naps on the couch were when she cuddled up with me. Daphne always slept in bed with me. She knew she could sleep under the blankets but always slept on top of our queen size bed on her blanket between my legs as that was her spot. I always slept so good with her and I would always find her in her bed sleeping away during the day or on her scratching post taking a snooze. For all the love she gave me I always gave her 4 times more & always got lots of licks, kisses and cuddles. Daphne was very lucky to have 2 great veterinarians here on St. John’s but sadly her doctor left to go to New Brunswick but her new doctor who was the owner of the clinic had took great care on her during visits. Daphne always had a way of making my bad days good and my good days even better and we had a bond far more greater then being her owner that words can never explain. Sadly in late August something had happened she was not herself for some reason so we had her scheduled for an ultrasound 2 weeks later but sadly she wasn’t able to make it and on September 24, 2020 at 6:10 pm Newfoundland time my baby girl had gotten her kitty wings & is now an angel. My girlfriend who I was with at the time who had adopted Daphne with me passed away back in March 2014 and now she is watching my baby kitty until my time comes. Daphne has been cremated and is resting in a kitty urn on her blanket and will be buried with me when my time comes. I miss Daphne so much and I have not been the same since. I still find things hard being home alone and breaking down crying knowing she is no longer with me. She was the best cat in the whole wide world and the happiness I have had is far beyond words could ever say. I want to say a huge thank you to who ever made it possible to say yes to letting my angel Daphne be a part of my life and being a therapy kitty. You will never know how that has felt or been. I also wanted to say THANK YOU IS NEVER ENOUGH but THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH FOR LETTING DAPHNE BE A PART OF MY LIFE. That has meant more to me then anything and from the very bottom of my broken shattered heart THANKS & appreciation for granting her a great life with me. I am forever grateful to have found my therapy cat, my protector, my guardian angel and my very best friend because of you wonderful people. With that I think of all the good times I had but I would trade away all the lazy weekends or rainy days just to hold my kitty once more
We welcomed Mac into our family in early 2021. It has been nothing but smiles, laughs and warm hearts since the day we brought him home! Mac’s favourite thing to do is play in the fresh snow, hang out with his big sister, chew on sticks, going for long walks, meeting his brothers and sisters from his litter at the dog park and sprawling out for a nice long nap! He is such a goofy boy and is always making us laugh. He had brought so much joy and laughter to our lives in the short time he has been with us. It’s truly just what we needed. We can’t wait for our summer adventures and to spend forever with him!
Zoe-Grace loves to sleep inside the box spring of my bed. She loves to be warm in front of the fireplace and there isn’t a roll of toilet paper safe around her. She either loves or hates feet, undetermined. She’s not very cuddly so I love it when she gently paws my face in the morning when she wants treats.
Buddy loves tormenting and playing with his feline friend, Fireball. Buddy also loves playing with all of his squeaky toys! Buddy is very intelligent with learning new tricks and commands and he brings our family so much joy!
Mango is the family’s Nana Dog. She takes care of her pack. Mango loves her family but is also fiercely independent. She likes to say hello and then go do her own thing. Mango’s favourite things to do is run at the dog park and lounge in the sun on top of a pillow on top of the couch. She doesn’t love being dirty and hates to get wet.
Sunny is a sweet soul who loves people and the outdoors. His favourite thing is sniffing around the Birchwood trails and meal time. He struggles with a bit of arthritis but you wouldn’t know it when he is outside. Nothing seems to phase him and he is so happy go lucky. It took him a while to get his energy back up as he would sleep for days on end when he first arrived to our home. He wagged his tail for the first time two weeks post adoption and it hasn’t stopped wagging since. He has completely changed our perspective on adoption forever. Thanks to the fmspca for all the wonderful things you do to breathe new life into these
With love, Mark and Holly
Fleur has been living her BEST life! She really loves her morning time outside in her backyard (not as much a fan of her hot pink harness, LOL) and her evening time sitting close to us. She loves laying in the sun or on the back of the couch and watching over her kingdom. She is a bit of a scaredy cat, doesn’t much like loud noises and is picky about who she will let close to her. But, we understand, four years ago she was at SPCA recovering from being hit by a car. We love her so much! What started as cat room visits, more for emotional peace after the 2016 fire, turned into a very spoiled furry addition to our family.
Ghost is a wonderful girl! After getting her use to us, she loves playing with her toys & getting treats.
She also likes cuddles now! We all love ghost and the personality she has brought into our family, it’s also nice watching my son play with her knowing she’ll grow up with him makes it all worth it :). Thank you to the fmspca for taking care off her before she could find her forever home!
Axle is the laziest boy out there. When we first adopted him it was definitely a learning curve between play and rest.
Come to find out he was a pain in the butt if he didn’t have exactly 4 hours of sleep in the middle of the day.
Still to this day he loves his naps but he has gained a little sister that loves to play and not let him sleep.
For being only 2, he acts like a grumpy old man with lots of snuggling and soothing.
When he isn’t napping, he’s working along side momma training his new sister. He is the best big brother out there even though his sister is already bigger then him.
We can’t even imagine life without our handsome man.
We adopted Whisper on Sept 20th 2019. She was one of the oldest cats there at the time & had also been there the longest. We bonded instantly with her.
The SPCA named her perfectly as she has a distinct little meow that sounds like she’s whispering so we kept her name the same. She’s very loving. She will sleep right on your chest or in your arms. She loves sitting at the head of the table during supper time. Her favourite treat is chicken nuggets. Her favourite game to play is fetch.
Whisper is still going strong at 5 years old now & we love her to pieces. She was the perfect addition to our little family.
Zeus (formally Darth) was adopted from the FMSPCA 9 years ago. Here are some photos from the first day he was brought home to now. He is living his best life with his forever family. Zeus is his new name since we got him. Fitting as I was told he was only going to be a medium size dog. He turned out to be quite the big softy
When me and my husband saw George on the SPCA website, we already had 2 Great Danes at home but something in our hearts told us we needed this boy, and he needed us. He has been with us for over a year now and he amazes us daily. His personality is like no other, and he lives for cuddles! His fave hobbies include playing with his Great Dane sister Perdita, going for off leash hikes with Mom, and most of all camping all summer with Dad! Thanks again for allowing us to rescue him.
I cannot thank-you enough! I was heartbroken after losing my cat Michu and was incredibly lucky to find my Fluffy. It was love at first-sight and we are inseparable. He gives the best hugs ever and is a very affectionate cat. Fluffy loves adventures and we go for walks around the neighborhood where he greets everyone (even dogs!). He has a talent for Public Relations. He’s also very playful and talkative and his meows have the style of an opera singer. I would say that Fluffy’s favorite activity is eating as he’s a kitty that eats like a piggy. He also has an obsession with my husband’s socks. My favorite time with Fluffy is when he cuddles with me and we fall asleep as he starts to snore and purrrrrr close to my ear. I always tell myself…”you must have done something really good to be this lucky.” I love Fluffy with all my heart!!! Forever grateful =^•^=
Fury (formerly Pearson) was 1 of the Northern Lakes Puppies born on January 28, 2019. I call Fury my puppy from Heaven. In 2015 I lost my 19 year old son Logan suddenly. We had been looking for a puppy to join our family for almost a year with several applications with different rescues. On April 5, 2019 we got a call from the SPCA that they had puppies we could come check out. We met our boy and fell in love. Logan’s birthday was March 31 so I consider Fury a birthday present from Logan
Chelsea is such an important part of our family! We loved her from the minute we saw her and she was our sons favourite! She is happy, playful and loving and is the kids proud protector. She goes everywhere with us and is best friends with our family cat Rose. She has brought so much joy to our lives.
Jasper LOVES his sister, Mango. He also loves to cuddle and snuggle and thinks he’s tiny when he’s really a giant. Jasper enjoys going to the dog park with his litter mates, daycare days at K9 and getting into all things he’s not supposed to.
George was adopted one year ago and has stolen my heart hundreds of times this year. If I leave the house he will stand up at the window and watch me drive away. He loves to nap on the couch, he loves his dental treats and he knows what time of day he gets them! He will paw at the cupboard door where they are kept than when we open it he will nose at the bag once, then he sits and waits.
He loves ear and belly scratches, but sleeping on our bed with us is probably his favourite thing of all.
We love everything about him but when he “smiles” at you, that may be the most adorable thing he does.
She loves boxes! She enjoys climbing into them and staring out at us from her box! She’s a lovable goofball! She enjoys rolling around on the floor and playing with her “feather on a stick!” She has made friends with our dog and is often seen staring down at her from the counter. She likes to climb to high places and stare down at us like the little queen she is!
She is SO loving! She’s always meowing and demanding attention, which we love. She enjoys having her tummy rubbed and her head stroked! She enjoys sleeping with me and purrs in her sleep! She’s absolutely adorable!
As soon as my family visited her in the shelter we fell in love! She’s such a sweetie! When we met her the first time in the shelter the first thing she did was reach her little paw out of the cage and demand head pats!
She is such a gentle cat, and so loving! We absolutely adore her and couldn’t imagine our lives without her!
We adopted Gypsy in 2009. She was estimated at 3-4 years old at the time. She’s an old gal now, and doesn’t move like she used to but she is living her best retirement life at the lake this summer. She is the best companion we could have asked for. She is sweet yet fiercely protective, a bit of a loner as she prefers the company of adults and enjoys the quiet life. Having her in our lives has been the best experience. If I could be half the person she thinks I am, I would be ok with that.
Bella came to us as a medical foster awaiting her dental surgery. We had no intentions of adopting but she quickly snuggled her way under the bed covers and into our hearts! She is my little sidekick now, coming along wherever I go; I even have a sling to ‘wear’ her in when it gets too cold to walk. She is the best friend that I didn’t know I needed, and I can’t imagine life without her silly antics and sweet snuggles. Thank you so much for bringing this sweet old girl into our lives and for giving her the medical care she needed to live a healthy and happy life with us!
Abby was abandoned in -30 weather, so we knew nothing of her first 8month. She came to us afraid of men, squat and pee when scared, hated car rides. However from the moment I spotted her behind that cage I knew she was meant to be mine. Abby was the BEST girl, smart, spunky personality, loved her stuffies (she had 20 at last count) , she was my cuddle muffin, always at me feet wherever I went in the house or outside in the summer. She loved camping trips, swimming at the lake, car rides, her family, carrots, romaine lettuce, treats and had an amazing, happy, very loved and spoiled life for the 12 years I was blessed to have my best friend, confidant, fur baby She slept with me for the last 12 years, sometimes the kids, but mostly me. We always said she was our family pet but in reality I was her Human and she was my fur baby. Sadly December 16, 2021 I had to say goodbye to her, she died in my arms at home. It’s been almost 2 weeks and I am feeling so lost without her, I know time will ease this. We are newly empty nesters so the loss is felt that much more. One day I will visit the SPCA and again welcome another fur baby into our home and Hearts thank you for all you do. The pictures included are of the day we found our sweet Abby and the day before she passed away.
We adopted Layla, formerly Marley, in 2020 as a companion for our scaredy-cat Mint. Layla never even had an adjusting period to our home, she instantly felt like it was where she was meant to be. She’s a confident cat and has been helping her sister to trust other people. I’ve never met a cat that is so gentle! Even with play she never has her claws out. She’s not the cuddliest of cats, unless we’re in bed and then she sits on top of us waiting for pets. Our little queen loves treats, the laser pointer, her tunnel, cardboard boxes, car rides, being outside in the summer time and holding her cat teaser toys hostage when she gets a hold of it. Meal time and car rides are her favourite. When I’m getting her meal ready she meows until I put her food down and I talk to her the entire time to reassure her that it’s coming. Any time she hears the keys jingle she goes to the back door and waits patiently thinking “you know I’m coming right!?” This winter she realized she doesn’t like outside if it’s cold/snowy. In the summer she doesn’t want to come inside and now I have a little gardening partner. She’s the sweetest little bean around and brings so much joy to our lives! We are so happy to have her as part of our family.
