This might just be a East Coast thing, but it seems every community had at least one dog named ‘tripod’, so I have a special appreciation (and admiration) for three-legged dogs. In fact, our family had one too after it lost an argument with a passing pickup truck. They don’t seem to care about their limited ability, they adapt and move on (including chasing cars). So, when I saw ‘Cash’, the three-legged black lab first featured in this video from the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA my cold, cold heart had already begun to melt.
The pets in the video, Cash, Cleo, Captain Bly, Stachey and Murphy have all become ‘Part of The Society’, an elite ‘club’ of pets who have found love, shelter and care in the homes of their new families through the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA.
The Hamilton/Burlington SPCA is celebrating 125 years of work caring for the area’s unwanted or abandoned kitties, doggies, guinea piggies (?) and other small animals.
As part of that celebration the SPCA is launching the ‘Wiggle Wagon’, a truck that can be found at community events around the region bringing adoption information and creating awareness of the SPCA’s services. The Wiggle Wagon will provide a new way for the SPCA to interact with past and future adopters in their own communities.
In addition to the Wiggle Wagon, the Hamilton-Burlington SPCA is reaching out to communities and pet-lovers to share their SPCA adoption experiences on the organization’s Facebook page.
The campaign and video were created by Kitestring Creative Branding Studio and the Low Key Studio & Gallery. The song is ‘Since You Sent Me Away’ is performed by Laura Scarlett Lewis and produced by Dave Disher.
