Nail Clipping


Micro chipping is a wonderful thing you can do for your pet.

Pets that have microchips have a far greater chance of being reunited with their family when they get lost, or even stolen. According to the American Humane Association, only 22% of lost dogs overall were returned to their families, while the return-to-owner rate for micro chipped dogs was over 52%.

Microchips are approximately the size of a grain of rice and are inserted beneath an animal’s skin, between its shoulder blades. The process is painless and takes about 2 minutes. Each microchip has a unique identification number and contains contact information for the pet’s owner. A scanner is used to collect the information on the microchip once it has been inserted. A microchip provides a permanent means of identification for your pet.

We offer microchipping by appointment for $35.00.

We are now selling Advantage, in the adoption centre, for both cats and dogs.

Know who doesn’t understand social distancing? FLEAS!

These pesky critters have an agenda all their own and are not at all concerned about anything else happening in the world.

Fleas are very active insects, feeding on blood from animals and people. They jump onto passing animals and burrow down into the fur to the skin, where they stay well hidden while biting and ingesting blood. This is irritating to the animal, and to humans as well, as the bites can cause severe itching and inflammation.

Advantage is available for cats, dogs and small animals such as rabbits and ferrets and is sold in boxes of 6. or boxes of 2.  Here is what you need to do to purchase a box

➡️ Contact us at 905 574-7722 and let us know the type of pet and their weight

➡️ PAY over the phone with a credit card. Visa, Mastercard or American Express, or your Visa Debit

➡️ PICK UP your items from the HBSPCA

Please note that Advantage is the only product we can sell without a prescription. If we have seen your dog within the last year for spay/neuter and you are looking for Flea/Tick medication please email info@hbspca.com and we can let you know what is available to you and the cost. Pick up/payment process will be the same as above.

Advantage is sold in boxes of 6 and is based on the weight of your pet.
Advantage is applied to your pet every 30 days.
