Baby gates are attached to the doorframes of the different offices at the SPCA.

“We all get to bring our dogs to work, which is really great,” SPCA Director of Public Relations Lesley Kirrene said. “It’s beneficial and it keeps you mellow, kinda keeps you down to earth … It’s a great place to work, it’s really a lot of fun.”

The SPCA is a local non-profit organization that took care of over 13,500 animals in 2010. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to the taking care of the animals, the SPCA holds different programs, organizes a spay and neuter clinic, places animals in homes and hosts multiple fundraising events throughout the year.

Kirrene’s job is to make sure the public knows about the SPCA’s different programs.

"This is Jake and he suggests that you call him the most handsome dog ever!  He loves driving in the car, and going On long walks.  He loves sleeping on the bed, but at 108 pounds it doesn't leave alot of room for the humans! The biggest dog with the biggest heart, that's Jake!!" said Diane.
