Newton came to the SPCA when his owners got a job up north and could not take him with them.

He loves to play ball and will go for hours.

Newton knows basic commands and is willing to please.

He would do well in a home with a doggie door as he loves to be outside but will often lounge inside on his dog bed.

Newton has shown a strong urge to chase small animals and cats, therefore we are looking for a cat free home.

We highly suggest doing some research on Malamutes before coming to see him as it can be a challenging breed.

Come in to the Penticton SPCA and meet Newton!

Stickers is a sweet 8 week old kitten.

She was brought in from animal control in the Oliver/Osoyoos area.

Stickers had a bit of an upset tummy and was underweight.

She has since been put on antibiotics and is feeling much better.

Stickers has been vaccinated and dewormed but still requires spaying once she is a little bigger.

This kitten is very playful, and active and loves to cuddle while she purrs up a storm.

Please contact the Penticton SPCA for more details.
