Meet the CEO: Doug Brooks
This week, Doug Brooks started his role as the new Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. Today, we’re sharing a video so you have a chance to get to know him better!
“The more staff I meet, donors I talk to, and adoptable animals I visit with, the more comfortable I feel,” says Brooks. “Working here feels like home.”
Growing up, Brooks says there wasn’t an animal his mom wouldn’t accept into her home. Whether it was an orphaned animal, or someone’s once-loved companion left by the side of the road — he says his house became a safe haven for animals in his community who needed a bit of extra love to get back on their feet.
“That’s one reason this role means so much to me. My mother’s legacy of creating a loving refuge for animals in need will carry through my work as our CEO,” says Brooks.
If you have any suggestions or comments, Doug Brooks wants to hear from you!
“We have a lot to do to make this world a better place for animals, big and small, and I would love to hear your thoughts,” says Brooks.
Please join us in welcoming Doug Brooks to the team at the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society!
I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift
I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves. My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are. Thank you SPCA.
