A few days ago I had the privilege of spending some time out at the brand new Maple Ridge SPCA facility. I really wish I had a before and after photo. You wouldn’t believe it. The Maple Ridge SPCA had spent their existence in a tiny little portable caring for the neighbourhood’s stray animals. What a welcome change this new facility is! The new building is BC’s first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited animal shelter, and in one years time we’ll know if it has become Canada’s first gold-level LEED accredited animal centre. Congratulations Maple Ridge SPCA!!!!
