COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – The “Promise for Parkie” year-end fund drive on behalf of the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is coming to an end at midnight. 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.
Executive Director Stacie Haynes emphasized the importance of the campaign in sustaining the services provided by the SQSPCA. The support from individuals, businesses, and foundations in the region is crucial for the high-quality services offered by the organization.
The Glynns’ generosity is in memory of their dog, Parker, and has the potential to raise an additional $25,000 if the $100,000 goal is met. Their love for animals, especially dachshunds, holds significant importance for the community.
The SQSPCA now provides monthly spay/neuter and vaccination services to the public, as well as veterinary services to other animal shelters in the region. With a full-time veterinarian on staff, the organization has solidified its role as a regional animal resource center.
Thanks to the Glynns’ substantial donation to the SHELTER US Capital Campaign, the SQSPCA’s state-of-the-art building is named “Fenton and Nanette’s House,” after the Glynns’ cherished dachshunds.
The “Promise for Parkie” campaign is accepting contributions online through the SQSPCA website. The organization is located at 5082-5088 State Highway 28, just north of the Village of Cooperstown.
In conclusion, the “Promise for Parkie” fund drive has been crucial in sustaining the high-quality services provided by the SQSPCA. The continued support from donors, like the Glynns, has allowed the organization to expand its services and solidify its role as a regional animal resource center.
