The SPCA event is held regularly to raise funds and awareness for the plight of abandoned animals. People often are forced to give up their pets due to allergies or because of moving into a new home or when they have a new baby. Of course, such situations are normal but it is always best to offer your pet a loving home instead of abandoning them.
Many people, on their way up Lakeside up from the Mill Pond, pass by a small non-descript sign announcing the local SPCA and as they approach they see it is a glassed bulletin board with a red light-bulb hanging beside it: most people wonder why!
As you look down you will also see engraved stones forming a tribute similar to a Hollywood walk of fame for all the pets who have made a difference to their owners...a tribute to the furry creatures who have made a difference in the lives of the people of Knowlton.
The SPCA have a bulletin board on Lakeside and if ever a pet, or cat, goes missing the red light is turned on and that alerts residents to the fact that they should stop and read the latest posting on the SPCA lost bulletin board. When the red light is turned off it signals that the pet has been found. It's a primitive system but it works and has pet owners feeling that if ever their dear pet goes missing there is someone who will help!
If you have a pet that needs a new home or ever find an animal that is in need of help then please do the right thing and contact the local branch of the Monteregie SPCA by calling Barbara Mason at (450) 676-9727 or visit the Monteregie SPCA to see their available adoptees who who love to have a home!
