The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA works tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate homeless, sick or injured animals. Dude has become the spokes man for the Wiggle Waggle Walk & Splash due to his courageous story.

Dude

On September 2012, the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA and Hamilton Police Services worked together to rescue Dude, who was found with no food or water and suffering from severe dehydration and skin wounds.Dude required immediate emergency veterinary care and with regular feedings, continuous medical attention and socialization, Dude began to slowly recover and 5 weeks later was deemed healthy. Dude has since found his forever home and is a happy boy with his new wonderful and caring family. End the suffering and show your support to end needless suffering like Dude and many other animals face – Walk for Charity!
