Purrrrfect Deals

By Judy Layne

Black Friday and Cyber Monday will be here before you know it.  Want to avoid the crowds at the mall and the stress of waiting in endless lines?  Here’s a guide for animal lovers to help you make the most of these special shopping days and give back to homeless animals at the same time.

Visit Nova Scotia SPCA Thrift Stores.  Looking for doggie deals and purrrrfect steals?  You’ll find great bargains to pounce on at our SPCA Thrift Stores year-round, not just on Black Friday.  And the proceeds from all sales stay in the community to help support shelter pets.  A definite win-win!

Don’t Furr-get the Animals.  Check out the SPCA’s Shelter Wish List before heading out to shopFrom cleaning supplies to kitty litter, from pet food to office supplies – picking up any of these items at the store is easy and your donation makes a huge difference to shelter animals.  Did you know that if you’re buying essentials online on Cyber Monday, you can even have items delivered straight to your local SPCA Animal Shelter?!

Find a New Furry Family Member.  Our shelters have a wide range of amazing dogs, cats and critters all looking for loving homes.  Drop by on Black Friday weekend for an opportunity to meet a bunch of great animals and find the one that’s a purrrrfect fit for your family.  Or, on Cyber Monday you can look for four-legged love in your PJs without getting off the sofa.  It’s easy by browsing the SPCA’s adorable adoptable pets online.

Donate your Savings and Save Lives.  With all the funds you’ve saved during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, donate to help furry friends in need.  The Nova Scotia SPCA does not receive any government funding for their shelters and your generous support will help pets be rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed into loving families.  Your savings will help save lives.

Adopt a Deserving Pet.  Adoption is the ultimate deal.  Did you know that when you adopt an animal from the Nova Scotia SPCA, the adoption fee includes:

  • Spay/neuter surgery
  • Microchip
  • Flea treatment/parasite testing
  • De-worming
  • First vaccine
  • A free visit to an SPCA participating veterinarian for a health check within two working days of the adoption
  • SPCA Pet Health Insurance for an 8-week trial period, with coverage for accidents and illness

Talk about all-inclusive! How paw-some is that?

And the ultimate deal????

Give Yourself the Gift of Unconditional Love.  Adopting a homeless pet is not only a great deal money-wise.  You also get the priceless gift of a lifelong companion and 24/7 unconditional love!

So, don’t miss out on great Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and a chance to show your love for animals.
