Interesting in hosting a fundraiser?

If you are a business or member of the public that would like to host a third party fundraiser to benefit RHSPCA, please email Kaitlin at to coordinate.

Please note that at this time we are unable to bring animals to events that have a goal of fundraising for another organization. We are choosing to focus on events that have a fundraising purpose for RHSPCA. Thank you for your understanding!

Interesting in having us join your next tabling event?

RHSPCA would be happy to participate in tabling events to provide education and resources for the community. We do not bring animals to these types of events as the focus is on spreading awareness of what RHSPCA does in the community. If you’d like like us to consider joining your event, please email Shannon at

Thinking of hosting an adoption event?

Off-site adoption events take a lot of planning! Not only do we have to transport animals and equipment, but we have to find available volunteers and pick out appropriate animals. For this reason, we do charge a $200 fee for adoption events. If hosting kittens, an indoor space is needed. If hosting dogs, please plan for 2-3 to be in attendance. Animals tend to do best when adoption events are no longer than 2 hours – it’s exhausting work for them! If you’re interested in possibly hosting an adoption event, email Shannon at to further discuss.
