“Today we are so grateful to announce that Army veteran Bob Nowakowski presented Niagara SPCA with a check for an additional $50,000 to help fund our new surgical suite!” The shelter wrote in a facebook post. “Bob has donated a total of $100,000 over the course of a few months as part of his pledge to match any funds raised towards the suite and thanks to the support of our amazing community, we hit his goal for us! We can never thank Bob enough for all he’s done and continues to do. In the humble words of Bob, ‘I’m just glad I can help.’ ❤️”
