“We invite animal lovers, shelter supporters and volunteers from across the region to join us with their pets for an afternoon of fun as we celebrate this momentous occasion,” said SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes. “If you’re not familiar with our work, this is also a great time to come learn about our organization and see us in action.”
The reception, which is free and open to the public, will kick off at noon with a groundbreaking ceremony and run until 2 p.m. Cookies and punch will be served, and the event will feature the following “pet-centered” activities:
• “Alumni” Photo Portrait Booth sponsored by Hughson & Benson Associates
• SQSPCA Mascot Photo Booth sponsored by Kevin’s Royal Automotive of Owego and Cooperstown
• SQSPCA Hugging Booth sponsored by Royal Chrysler-Hyundai of Oneonta
All those attending are encouraged to bring their own leashed pets to participate in these activities. The SQSPCA will also have a number of adoptable dogs and cats in attendance to stand in as needed for photographs and hugs.
The Susquehanna SPCA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization established in 1917. We are a privately funded, state inspected animal shelter practicing “no-kill” philosophies in the care of homeless, abandoned, and seized animals in and around Otsego County. Private donations, grants, fundraising and our New Leash on Life Thrift Shop are the shelter’s only source of income, and our ability to rescue homeless animals in need depends entirely on the compassion and generosity of our community.
