Ben Miles first arrived in the Bow Valley in the fall of 1984 on a work vacation after deciding the idea of working in the mountains and skiing seemed a far more romantic and appealing pursuit, although Toronto was a land of opportunities and urban adventures. In time Ben made the Bow Valley home and today resides in Canmore, where he owns and operates Livin’ & Dancin’ DJ Services, while also leading his jazz quartet at private functions and events.
It was through Forest (the Ravenhound, an Australian Shepherd cross) that Ben came to be a member of the board in the Spring of 2016. Forest is an alumni from the Bow Valley SPCA where he ended up after being abandoned in Canmore in early August of 2009.
In recognizing how pets give so much in unconditional love and companionship, Ben joined the board to help support its mission of a no-cage, no-kill philosophy while ensuring all cats and dogs who arrive are given the chance they need to find a loving home.
