Construction on the BCSPCA’s new Castlegar facility is nearing completion.
According to Danielle Jackman, manager of the Trail SPCA facility, contractors are doing finishing work on the outside and painting on the inside.
Jackman will become the branch manager of the new West Kootenay Community Animal Centre when it opens this summer.
An official opening date has not been set, but three kids camps are scheduled for the new facility in August. More information is available at spca.bc.ca.
According to the website: “Campers are immersed in animal-themed activities and are challenged, in fun and engaging ways, to learn about responsible animal care, discover fascinating new animal facts and develop positive, respectful relationships between people, animals and nature. They leave feeling inspired to be ambassadors for animals in their community.”
