2015 SPCA on Tour Day

2015 SPCA

 

This year’s theme “Pride & Pedigree” highlights the change which occurred during the Victorian Era in the relationship between animals and their owners from working livestock to adored family pets. Instead of the labor animals performed, pets were valued for companionship and prized for their appearance. This era saw a shift in the pet industry through the breeding of pure-breeds and the establishment of kennel clubs. It was also the beginning of animal rights through organizations like the “Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.”
