The Exploits Valley SPCA has been protecting abused, neglected and stray animals since 1971. Our branch covers all of Central Newfoundland West and south from Lewisporte to Baie Verte. Our shelter, located on Duggan street in Grand Falls- Windsor, was constructed in 1991. In 1994, the Exploits Valley SPCA was granted charity status. Our membership includes approximately 20 active members as well as a number of loyal supporters who help out when they can. Members are responsible for raising upwards of 75% of the funds required to operate the shelter on a yearly basis.
