melissa1Hi there! My name is Melissa Topham and I wanted to introduce myself as the new Operations Manager here at the shelter.  I was born and raised in Eastend SK, where my love of animals first stemmed with my families 200 head of red angus cross cattle and branched out from there. I graduated with honours from the Animal Health Technology program at Olds College in 2011 and from there I worked in one of the major equine practices in Alberta, and then onto a busy mixed practice in Lumsden, SK. I then decided I wanted to be closer to home so I made the move to Swift Current, where I worked for a number of years at two clinics in the city. I decided it was time for a bit of a change so that’s what lead me to here today! When I am not busy with work I enjoy being outdoors, helping on the family ranch, working out and hanging out with my boyfriend Josh and our two rescue cats Roger and Tossy. I look forward to my future endeavours here at the SPCA and hopefully see you soon!
