Keep Calm & Rescue On - St John's SPCA
In 2012, the SPCA St. John’s rescued 1,531 injured, homeless, neglected and abused animals. We found loving families for 953 homeless animals (293 dogs and 660 cats), transferred ninety-one animals to coalition animal rescue organizations and reunited 117 lost animals with their families.
In addition to housing and caring for the animals that come through the shelter doors, the SPCA promotes responsible pet ownership and provides financial assistance for spay and neuter procedures. We are proud to have provided $30,000 in spay and neuter assistance programming in 2012 alone.
With an annual operating budget of over $500,000, SPCA St. John’s relies primarily on the kind support of donors. Only ten percent of our annual funding comes from government institutions; the rest is obtained through generous donations and various fundraising events such as our Walk for Animals, Howliday Fair, raffle ticket and calendar sales.
In 2012, the SPCA opened a completely volunteer-run thrift store which has proved to be a huge success! In its first operating year, the SPCA Thrift Store generated $52,000 in profit to help animals in need.
