Marcie Moriarty

Chief Prevention and Enforcement Officer

With separate degrees in Animal Biology and Law, Marcie Moriarty draws on all aspects of her background and education as head of the BC SPCA's Prevention and Enforcement Department. Marcie completed her degrees at the University of British Columbia. She was called to the bar in May 2003 and went on to practise civil litigation with the firm of Quinlan Abrioux in Vancouver.

Her passion for animal welfare and advocacy soon led her to a career with the BC SPCA in 2005 as General Manager of the society's Cruelty Investigations Department. In this role, she oversaw a department of over 26 full time constables who were responsible for responding to up to 7000 animal cruelty complaints a year.

During her time at the BC SPCA, Marcie has presented to numerous animal welfare and law students on the subject of animal cruelty law and is currently co-teaching an animal law class at UBC Law school.

In 2012, Marcie took on her current role leading a department that combines cruelty investigations, stakeholder relations and scientific programs.
