The Exploits Valley SPCA has been protecting abused, neglected and stray animals since 1971. The branch covers all of Central Newfoundland West and south from Lewisporte to Baie Verte. 

The shelter, located on Duggan Street in Grand Falls-Windsor, was constructed in 1991.  In 1994, the Exploits Valley SPCA was granted charity status.  The membership includes approximately 20 active members as well as a number of loyal supporters who help out when they can. Members are responsible for raising upwards of 75% of the funds required to operate the shelter on a yearly basis.  The Exploits Valley SPCA is affiliated with the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies and with the Newfoundland and Labrador SPCA. 

The Exploits Valley SPCA is a volunteer-based, charitable organization dedicated to improving the welfare of animals.  Its members are sworn to:

·  uphold the laws of the Canadian Criminal Code(and local by-laws) regarding animal cruelty by means of investigation, and if necessary, prosecution.

·  to provide shelter to animals in need and assist in placing them in permanent safe homes.

·  to endeavour to prevent animal abuse or neglect by means of public education.

·  to humanely euthanize unwanted and/or seriously injured animals.

Each month there is a variety of fund-raising activities which encourages people from all walks of life to participate and there is a thriving Junior Membership also.

E.V. SPCA “Help Us Help Them” Telethon

Our bi-annual E.V. SPCA “Help Us Help Them” Telethon took place on Wednesday Apr. 5, 2017 on the Rogers TV Community Channel (Cable 9). This is our biggest and best fundraiser by far. A full report on the results of our Telethon 2017 will be presented at the meeting. Our Telethon is a lot of work and the help of all our volunteers is greatly appreciated. The SPCA thanks everyone for their support and making our Help Us Help Them Telethon 2017 a rousing success.

Upcoming Fundraisers...

 The annual Crime Stoppers Dog Show will take place at the Joe Byrne Memorial Arena on Sunday, June 4 starting at 2PM. The Exploits Valley SPCA will have a booth at this event.

Preliminary Notice: This year our annual E.V. SPCA Dog Jog will take place on Sunday June 18. We’ll start at Church Road Park as in previous years and follow our usual route. The walk takes about one hour to complete. Sponsor sheets will be available at our May meeting, at the shelter or from me.

The third Saturday of every month we do our Looney Line at the Exploits Valley Mall here in town. We do this from September to June. We set up a desk and chairs plus our signs and a cage with a kitten or a puppy on view to attract attention. Then we canvas for donations. Our volunteers do the shifts and we change hourly, both the volunteers and the animals. We want to avoid stressing the animals so we don't keep them there too long.Upcoming fundraisers will be discussed at the meeting. Our expenses are very high and fundraising is the primary way we manage to stay in operation.

We encourage all our members and supporters to bring along a friend as the E.V. SPCA always needs good new volunteers. We hope all our members will make a special effort to attend our May meeting.

Check the website for further details of all future fund-raising events, and ways in which you can help.

We thank you in advance for your continued support.
