|Operation Military Pets Celebrates One Year!|
|This month we celebrate the first anniversary of SPCA International’s Operation Military Pets program. Over the past year, SPCA International has played a lifesaving role for 251 military families’ pets. For numerous financial reasons, each dog and cat faced the risk of having to be left behind – either in an already overcrowded animal shelter or handed off to someone else when their families moved to their next duty location. Thankfully 212 dogs and 37 cats were able to remain with their families because of SPCA International supporters.
The Operation Military Pets program was formed out of a concern that military families often have a difficult time coming up with the money to transport their pets when given military relocation orders. Hear More from Military Families

|A group of porcupines is called a “prickle”. The largest member of the rodent family, porcupines are very adept at climbing trees with assistance from their curved claws and strong tails. Their quills are used as self-defense and regenerate after they are lost. A baby porcupine is called as a “Porcupette”!|
