Farewell Letter from Meredith Ayan

Dear SPCA International Community,

With my heart full of gratitude, the time has come for me to end my tenure with this incredible organization after 11 years. My last day as Executive Director is June 15th; Beyond that I will remain forever a friend of SPCA International and an animal advocate.

It has been my absolute honor to lead SPCA International through the years. Together we have rescued over 1,000 animals belonging to servicemembers and we have granted millions of dollars in aid to organizations on the front lines in hundreds of countries around the world. I have had the distinct honor of testifying before the Congress of Deputies in Madrid, rescuing the first animals out of the Exclusion Zone in Chernobyl, and meeting with governments at every level around the world to improve the lives of animals. While it is the right time for me to move on, I look forward to seeing all the organization will continue to accomplish.

To every person who has been involved with SPCA International during my time with the organization, none of the accomplishments of the past years would have been possible without your support. Thank you for your lifesaving work, your donations and your friendship.


Meredith Ayan
