I love animals, and I love newspaper ads. I also love words. And shamelessly, I love pictures of animals that I can use for newspaper ads that go nicely with headlines and copy written to (hopefully) persuade people to adopt animals from the SPCA. I created a whole bunch of ads, posters and other pieces for our local SPCA branch from 2009 to 2013 – but not anymore, as the provincial office of the SPCA is now in charge of all advertising for branches. It was a beautiful run while it lasted. This post approved by Jake-the-Wolf (rescued from abandonment), Lucy (kitten found in ditch), Molly (mother cat saved from neglect) and Brutus (cat of large-ness adopted from SPCA).
Shown below are a few of my favourite SPCA pieces from over the years.
