Handing Over the Leash

Saying Goodbye          








Over the last six years, I’ve had the privilege to work alongside some of the most dedicated and compassionate people I’ve ever known and lead an innovative organization centered around saving lives and making our community a better place. Together, we have accomplished so many wonderful things for pets and people!  Many of the proudest and most grateful moments of my life tie back to the work and achievements of the Saint John SPCA Animal Rescue. Attached are a list of accomplishments that we have achieved over the past six years.

Michael MacKay has accepted the position as President and we are very pleased to have him at the helm advancing our mission, vision and ensuring that our brand is at the forefront of all that we do.

I will continue to support the shelter as a volunteer and engage in other important causes that fuel my passion.   I will always hold the staff, volunteers and donors very near to my heart.

Without you, the Saint John SPCA Animal Rescue would not be the organization it is today. I extend my deepest and most sincere gratitude to you for believing in me, believing in the shelter and being committed to bringing our vision to life. Although my focus is broadening, I will always have the best interest of pets at heart, and I will continue to devote my skills and talents to advance the mission work of animal welfare.

It has been such an honor to serve as the leader of this incredible organization and I look forward to cheering on the continued success of our shelter as it drives change in our community through innovative programs that promote adoption, outreach, veterinary care and a better life for pets and the people who love them.

Kindest regards,












Michael, Lilly, Sarah and Dexter MacKay
