The Kelowna SPCA unveiled it’s newest facility on Wednesday.
The SPCA opened a Recovery and Adoption Barn for abused horses and farm animals adjacent to the existing shelter on Carsorso Road. The barn is part of the BC SPCA’s eight-year, $50-million capital plan to replace or refurbish 10 facilities across BC. That fund has since been assisted by the provincial government, who donated a further $5-million towards the project.
The facility announcement was made by BC SPCA chief executive officer Craig Daniell, who said the $250,000 facility would not have been possible without the donation from the province, as $100,000 of the $5-million was put towards the new barn.
