BUILDING THE REGIONAL SPCA ST. JOHN'S
Modern animal shelters have evolved to become facilities that do more than house animals in need. By emphasizing the value of public engagement and providing community spaces (inside and out) for education, training, and community events, these facilities are self-sustaining, integrated fixtures of the community. That's why we have developed the appropriate plans and equipment to provide the operational efficiencies needed to free staff and volunteers to focus on what matters most: direct animal care, socialization, and public education—including accommodating more volunteers and visitors beyond the 400 they currently see each month.
With a greater emphasis on socialization and adoption, the SPCA St. John's will be sustainable to meet the growing adoption demand.
