NewmarketToday, in partnership with the Ontario SPCA Provincial Education & Animal Centre, brings you a regular feature highlighting special pets in need of adoption.


Sven is a six-year-old brown tabby who is looking for his fur-ever home.

When Sven first arrived at the centre, he was a nervous cat, but with a little love and attention, he has become a true sweetheart. He enjoys to purr, knead, be pet, and loves to rub his cheeks on his friends.

Sven enjoys a calm space and prefers not to be held. His independent personality makes him better suited for a home with only adults.

Prior to coming to the Ontario SPCA Provincial Education & Animal Centre, Sven was part of an outdoor cat colony. His caregiver worked on socializing him and quickly noted that Sven had more characteristics of a family cat and would do well living in a home. While living in the colony Sven was neutered and ear tipped.

Sven is a healthy middle aged animal, but may require a dental in the future. His family will need to ensure that his teeth are monitored for any changes as he ages. The staff at the Provincial Education & Animal Centre can go over with potential adopters his complete health profile.

Sven is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations.

For more information on Sven, or to see other animals available for adoption, visit or call 905-898-7122, ext. 306.
