New SPCA Op Shop in FRANKTON!

The Team from SPCA - Hamilton Centre

Our Hamilton Op Shops are growing, and we are excited to announce we have a second store in the Hamilton neighbourhood located at 42 Lake Road in Frankton — make sure you come along to check it out! It is open 7 days a week (yes that's right, it's open both Saturdays & Sundays).

We are also on the look out for more support with day-to-day operations in our Frankton store, so if you have some spare time each week please consider filling out our volunteer application form. A few hours a week goes a long way, all while knowing the store contributes to helping animals in need 🐱🐰
