Velvet’s Story (Part 2)


When I was sleeping last night I had a dream. I dreamed about my life before Mike and Sam took care of me. I was at another farm, when one day a trailer came to pick all of the horses up including me. I was not afraid, I just walked onto the trailer with my friend. I knew we were headed for a better life and that I would be very well treated where I was going because. I noticed the words Ontario SPCA were on the side of the trailer. I told my friend that the Ontario SPCA is an organization that helps all animals to get really good lives.

I had heard people talking about it before. They said, through its province-wide network of 50 plus Communities, the Ontario SPCA is one of the largest, most responsive animal welfare organizations in the country, providing care and shelter for tens of thousands of animals every year. As a non-profit charitable organization, the Ontario SPCA is unique amongst animal welfare organizations in Ontario: the Ontario SPCA Act mandates the Society to enforce animal cruelty laws and provides Ontario SPCA Community investigators with police powers to do so.

I also met Jane that day. I just loved her. She is so kind and caring and I know she helps animals everywhere. She is the one that found my new home for me at Back of Beyond, and I am very thankful to her. All the other horses (and Sadie my fluffy dog friend) are very happy.
