Furry Food Drive

Reading Time: 2 minutes


It’s that time of year. Temperatures are plummeting and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for stray animals to find food, let alone shelter.

The SPCA is a non-profit organization dedicated to caring for stray and unwanted animals in Saint John, and can especially use our help during these upcoming winter months.

That being said, the Baron will be accepting donations of pet supplies at our office from November 12th until November 28th. All donations will be dropped off to the SPCA on December 1st.

Donations can be dropped off to the Baron office, located on the second floor of the Thomas J. Condon Student Centre (suite 230). If there is nobody in the office, please leave donations in the box left outside the door.

We ask that all cash donations are given directly to the SPCA, via their website or during their business hours.
