Can any one help... I will forward you to the appropriate person.

Does anyone have info about the individual dogs? Are they good with cats, etc?

I am in Hamilton and can't adopt right now, but I could foster a dog that is okay with cats while we wait for transport to be arranged to a rescue, if a rescue is found. I may be able to find others who can do the same.

The problem is that I do work during the day (though I usually go home for lunch) so it would need to be a dog that is ok being at home during the day.

Not sure if that helps...but it's the best I can do right now.

I'm going to visit the Hamilton SPCA after work today (5:30 ish) to see what the situation is (how many pitties they have, what their needs are, etc).

Found some more info on them, they're not the dogs I was thinking of, but they still need help!

From the sounds of it, I believe these dogs are under the control of Stoney Creek- Hamilton Animal Control, NOT the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA, but I don't think it'd hurt to get in touch with them to confirm this.
