The Burin Peninsula SPCA was formed in September 1996 by a group of individuals who were interested in making improvements in animal welfare on the Peninsula.
Our shelter was opened in May of 1999 after three years of continued fundraising and government funding.
Our mission is to make improvements in animal welfare through education, awareness and responsibility, thus providing a better and longer life for all animals.
About BURIN PENINSULA S P C A
Small town animal shelter trying to survive on limited funding with too many dogs and cats. We've been fighting since 99 and will continue to do so but the pressure is on. We may have to close our doors at the end of summer unless we can raise enough money to cover the costs of a worker, the building and the extreme high costs of housing and care for the animals.
