An aging building is becoming a challenge for the Greater Moncton SPCA and the Executive Director is hoping 2017 will mean planning for a replacement.

Dave Rogers says they have been out in the Caledonia Industrial Park since 1980, and it's time for them to start looking at their options, "So, I'm really hoping that maybe 2017 is going to give us that opportunity  We have a Board of Directors that govern the SPCA and I'm really hoping we can start some kind of initiative to get that going."

He's hoping they can look at either some major renovations or a replacement of the building.  Rogers says, "I'm really leaning towards a replacement, because the current building is very old and very inadequate." 

He says the current building, that is aging, means a lot of challenges with the number of animals they are caring for.  That number continues to rise.

They cared for over 200 more animals in 2016 when compared to the year before.

Rogers say he is aware that this will take some major funds, but he's hoping they can look at their options on how to get it.
