This year was the third year members of Devon Energy had contributed to the cause, and volunteers spent the morning cleaning dog yards and pens, as well as removing old straw and dog houses that are no longer usable and repainting some kennels that were in need of a touch up.

Afterwards, volunteers kept busy by patching up drywall above the kennels and sorting bottles and cans that have been donated to the shelter.

The North Peace SPCA gave their thanks to the volunteers, saying “We truly appreciate all the help we receive from the good people at Devon each year they have come. They are enthusiastic and work well with us, and each other.”
