Niagara SPCA announced a major milestone: More than 15,000 animals have been saved since the organization became no-kill in 2012.
“This milestone is an exceptional tribute to each and every staff member and volunteer who work so tirelessly day in and day out to provide for all of the animals in our care who are still waiting for their forever home,” Executive Director Tim Brennan said. “It is truly a labor of love for everyone at the Niagara SPCA, and we share in the pride and sense of accomplishment that this brings. This just shows how committed we are to helping every dog, cat, rabbit or other companion animal find their family, regardless of how long it may take.
“Most importantly, it is critical to acknowledge that this accomplishment would not have been possible without the support of our entire community. We rely almost entirely on private gifts for our funding, and operating a no-kill shelter requires significantly more resources because some of our furry friends end up being with us for a while longer than we'd like. A most sincere thanks to all of staff, volunteers, board members, donors and friends who have made this possible."
The Niagara SPCA mission is to prevent cruelty to all animals through public education on humane treatment, and to provide love, care, shelter and advocacy for companion animals in the community.
A press release stated, “We are committed to the no-kill philosophy, embracing the practices of rehabilitating, fostering and rehoming companion animals in need, and to preventing their overpopulation through community outreach.”
