Special Days

February 14th – Valentine’s Day

National Dress Up Your Pet Day

Post your pet’s picture on Twitter and/or Instagram, tagging the Toronto Humane Society and using the hashtag #THSDressUpContest to have your chance at winning a $25 Gift Card to Indigo.

Not all pets are okay with dressing up, however some really don’t mind. Please do not force your pet to do something they are uncomfortable with. Be respectful of their boundaries.

February 28th – 23rd Annual World Spay Day

World Spay Day is an annual campaign of The HSUS, Humane Society International and the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. On the last Tuesday of every February, World Spay Day shines a spotlight on the power of affordable, accessible spay/neuter to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in shelters or killed on the street.

There are many great reasons to spay or neuter pets, so don’t wait until the last Tuesday in February to take action. Visit resources HERE.

February 27th – National Cup Cake Day

National Cupcake Day™ is the most delicious way to show your support for animals in need of your help!

Register today (it’s free!) and start planning your Cupcake Day party. Simply plan to supply some delicious treats, and then invite co-workers, friends and family to attend in exchange for a donation to your SPCA or Humane Society of choice. It’s a super fun and easy way to “bake a difference” for the animals in your community who need you most.
