Nova Scotia SPCA Appeals to the Auto Industry
As a non-government, non-profit charitable organization, we rely on donor dollars to fulfill our mission. The province has mandated the Nova Scotia SPCA through provincial legislation to prevent animal cruelty and protect animals from harm. For 2010, the government’s commitment to subsidize funding for cruelty investigations is $3,000. The cost to keep our three Provincial Special Constables on the road and aiding animals in distress is $561,000.
We are appealing to the auto industry to keep our investigators on the road. Through an in-kind or monetary donation, you would be helping animals that have been subject to unimaginable cruelty, abuse or neglect. Over 8,000 animals come into our care each year, requiring medical help and a new home. Your support would mean that we can answer the call and rescue animals – giving them the second chance that they deserve.
The Nova Scotia SPCA is committed to being a no-kill animal welfare organization with a zero tolerance for animal cruelty. The animals that we take in receive first class care. Special Constable, Nancy Noel has been rescuing animals for four years. She will tell you that it is a hard job.
“Rescuing animals is its own reward. It is a privilege to this work,” says Noel.
Your support means that Constable Noel can continue to educate the public about responsible pet ownership, investigate suspected cases of neglect, abuse and cruelty and enforce the animal welfare laws of the province. Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is central to the quality of all of our lives. Please join our community of support. We need your help today.
