Yesterday I made a venom filled post about the NS SPCA and I wanted to narrow it down a little bit - my beef isn't with the NS SPCA as a whole - over the years I've written a lot of posts about the Nova Scotia SPCA and I've always made a distinction between the talking heads and the administrations of the SPCA and the branches across the province - the people who do the actual work of the humane organization.
I have nothing but respect and faith in the branches across the province and the people who do the everyday work saving the animals who need rescuing across the province that the SPCA saves everyday - it's the administration and the people who interpret the Animal Cruelty Act that I have a problem with - but the people who actually work at the shelters across the province, and who volunteer with the NS SPCA - they are above reproach and I respect them immensely - I always have, and I always will.
I have said it before over the years, and I always will.
I just wanted to make that clear. I know that I can't walk into a branch because I am disliked so immensely for the things that I write - but I still wanted to put that out there - it's not them I'm targetting - it's the people at the top that need to have their policies looked at, and their interpretations of the Act questioned. Not the workers.
