Adopt Me: Fun-loving Rick would be your ultimate pet companion

This week's Adopt Me pet is a beautiful Shepherd-Husky mix that travelled here as part of the Support the North program

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

Rick is a fun-loving, Shepherd-Husky mix that is looking for his best pal. This free-spirited one-year-old came to the Provincial Education & Animal Centre in January to find a new home through the Ontario SPCA’s Support the North campaign.

Rick, like many other Northern dogs, was free roaming without much training and is still learning his home etiquette. Sometimes he gets so excited he forgets his manners, and would be best suited for an experienced adopter who can work on Rick’s good habits.

Rick is the ultimate companion. He would love nothing more than to play and go for long walks with his new family. Once Rick is tuckered out, he can be a real cuddle bug and knows exactly how to unwind. Rick would do best in a home where he is your No. 1, with no other animals or young children. He is fixed, microchipped and vaccinated.

To meet Rick, please call the Ontario SPCA Provincial Education & Animal Centre in Stouffville at 905-898-7122 ext.306 to set up an appointment. To see more animals available for adoption, visit

Support the North is aimed at bringing awareness, attention and action to the serious issue of dog overpopulation in the North and a lack of animal wellness resources in Northern communities. The Ontario SPCA and its partners have developed a network of individuals, organizations and communities united in creating healthy communities for animals and people. To learn more about how you can get involved, visit
