The Nova Scotia SPCA is the only charity organization with legal powers to help animals in need and bring animal offenders to justice. Our Special Constables are authorized under the Animal Protection Act to protect companion animals from abuse, neglect, and abandonment.
They have the authority of peace officers when enforcing laws pertaining to animal welfare and cruelty prevention. If there has been a deliberate act of violence or neglect, our Officers seek justice through the courts.
