Golden Paw Awards
11 October, 2019

We depend on the enthusiasm, generosity and skills of our amazing volunteers.  To date, we have over 500 volunteers that help with animal care, fostering, fundraising, TNR, and supporting our SPCA thrift stores. On behalf of our SPCA shelter pets, we are excited to celebrate outstanding volunteerism with Golden Paw Awards. These awards have been generously sponsored by an amazing donor: Queenidog.  

Golden Paw Award Winner – September 2019

Garry Smith

Garry Smith volunteers at the Cape Breton SPCA Thrift Store four times a week and is a lifelong animal lover and advocate.  Back in 1975 while working as an RCMP Officer, Garry remembers laying the very first charge for a case of cruelty to animals in Nova Scotia. 

“Garry goes above and beyond while he is volunteering with us,” gush our SPCA team.  “No task is ever too big or too small for him to tackle.  The well-being of the animals, as well as staff and other volunteers, are his number one priority.”

When not volunteering, Garry is always either fostering pets or promoting the SPCA.  We have even had customers and donations come in from 2-3 hours away because of Garry.  Thank you, Garry, for your kindness, compassion and dedication.  Enjoy your SPCA Golden Paw Award!
