SPCA Resignation

Mary Holland-Grist

The manager of the local SPCA has decided to leave the organization.

Mary Holland-Grist took over in the middle of a court battle between the former Cape Breton Humane Society and the provincial SPCA. She's been on the job just over six months. .

Holland-Grist says her resignation has nothing to do with the dispute... or how the organization is run.

She spoke with CBC's Joan Weeks about the challenges of running an animal shelter in Cape Breton.
