CORNWALL, Ontario – Six rats found a new home this weekend as members of the public had the chance to drop by the OSPCA of SDG on Saturday, May 25 to tour the local facility and learn more about services offered.

“This is going to become an annual thing,” said Carol Link,  Animal Centre Manager. “We’re not usually open on Sundays, so it’s an opportunity to give people tours. There have been some adoptions today, as well as people enjoying a BBQ. We have some auction items as well. It’s also an opportunity to talk to people.”

Link said that there was also a 50/50 draw available during the afternoon. She was happy to inform members of the public about the OSPCA yard sale coming up in June and the annual walkathon that takes place in September.

“We can’t do what we do without the support of the community…there’s a lot of things we do, other than just being an adoption centre, so it’s good to talk about those things,” said Link.
