Meet the challenge to help secure SPCA

Local businessman is challenging others businesses to help fund a surveillance system for Quesnel SPCA

Ray Hoekendyk with three of his four-legged friends. He’s challenging the business community to help raise funds for a SPCA surveillence system.

Ray Hoekendyk from Excel RV Service loves animals and he has great respect for the job being done by the SPCA in Quesnel.

When he heard about yet another break-in in which all the bottles and cans were stolen that were to go towards donations, he decided to step up to the plate and do something to help the organization that helps those unable to act for themselves.

Ray is donating $300 towards a surveillance system for the Quesnel SPCA Branch.

This latest break-in is the second in recent months.

Earlier, thieves broke in and stole money from the office used to provide care, food and anything else the animals require while in their wonderful care.

With no government funding, the SPCA relies on these donations to help the animals that are in need of love and veterinarian care while they are found new forever homes.

Excel RV Service is challenging all Quesnel businesses to donate to the Quesnel SPCA whether it is money or other items needed and they are always happy to receive cans and bottles they can turn into money.

Most everyone is a pet owner and should be doing what they can to support these hard working, compassionate people that work tirelessly to help animals in need.

So please do what you can to contribute to your local SPCA.

Excel RV is also challenging all of its clients to make a donation either at the shelter itself or at Excel’s shop in the donation box.

Call the shelter at 250-992-7722 if you would like to know what is needed and contribute.

Whoever did this should be ashamed of what they have done and hopefully with this new surveillance system, it will eliminate further harm to all the lives that rely so much on the SPCA’s help.
