Good news! Remember Toby, the cat who walked 12 miles back to his family, only to be taken to a shelter to be euthanized? (Don't worry! He was transferred to the SPCA instead!)

Well, Toby has been adopted! He has three new siblings (one feline and two human) and a cat-savvy mom to show him what a loving family is really like.

If you were moved by Toby's story, you aren't alone. If you'd like to do something about it, visit to sign up for the 2018 Dog Walk & Woofstock and make a difference for other homeless pets.

Thank you all who shared Toby’s story earlier this week. Toby is safe here at the SPCA Pet Adoption Center waiting to find his forever home. He would prefer to be the only cat in his home. We hope his story inspired you to take a stand for animals in need and register for the 2018 SPCA Dog Walk on May 6th.
