Historical Progress for Spanish Greyhounds
SPCA International joined forces with many Spanish animal rescue organizations on March 12th in Madrid to address the cruelty inflicted upon Greyhounds used for hunting in the Southern regions of Spain. We met with the Congress of Deputies to urge them to end this cruel practice, and lend our international support to this conversation. Many of our supporters signed the petition earlier this month in support of banning this type of hunting in Spain, the last European country to allow it. Learn More
Rescue Story: Little Miss Muffin
Little Miss MuffinThis is Little Miss Muffin. She was thrown out of her house when her owners found out she was pregnant. Before she was thrown out, they abused her, resulting in multiple fractures in her leg. She had nowhere to go and was forced to give birth to her litter in a planter on a walkway. What Happened Next?
Stop Breed Specific Legislation
Breed Specific LegislationMost, if not all states, have their legislatures in session right now. One of the most important issues many are deciding relates to restricting or banning certain breeds of dogs in various jurisdictions. Many of these laws do not base these bans on breed alone, but whether a dog LOOKS like a breed. Most dogs are mixes and impossible to classify into a single breed. How You Can Help

Hey, Did You Know?
FrogIf you live in Eastern Canada or the US, you may be starting to hear a familiar sound in the evenings – Spring Peepers! Our amphibious friends start their spring symphonies around mid-March signaling the end of winter. But don’t go looking for them, they are very well camouflaged in the leaves and dirt of the forest floor and only grow to about 1.5 inches. They may be tiny, but they are loud! Their calls have been compared to the sound of sleigh bells.
Please help our animal population - have your pets spayed or neutered!
