Cooperstown, New York – As the clock winds down to midnight, the “Promise for Parkie” year-end fund drive supporting the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is coming to a close. From November 28 to December 31, shelter supporters Beth and Gary Glynn have pledged to donate an additional $5,000 to the SQSPCA for every $20,000 raised, up to $100,000.
“This campaign is our biggest of the year, and it is what makes the difference as to what services the SQSPCA can provide,” said Executive Director Stacie Haynes. “The high-quality services we currently offer are only available because of the support of individuals, businesses, and foundations in our region who believe in what we do and who care about the wellbeing of animals.”
In a touching tribute to their late dog, Parker, the Glynns’ matching challenge, “Promise for Parkie,” aims to honor the memory of their beloved pet. According to Haynes, the Glynns’ love for animals, especially their dachshunds, is truly exceptional.
Thanks to generous donors like the Glynns, the SQSPCA now provides monthly spay/neuter and vaccination services to the general public as well as veterinary services to other animal shelters in the region. A full-time veterinarian is on staff, and the SQSPCA has also solidified its role as a regional animal resource center.
The “Fenton and Nanette’s House” facility, which opened in July of 2021, has been made possible in part due to the Glynns’ significant donation to the SHELTER US Capital Campaign. This state-of-the-art building has further bolstered the SQSPCA’s ability to provide essential services to animals in need.
As the “Promise for Parkie” fund drive wraps up, contributions can still be made securely online at www.sqspca.org/donate/. Every donation helps to ensure that the SQSPCA can sustain and expand its crucial services for the benefit of animals and the community.
