COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – The “Promise for Parkie” year-end fund drive on behalf of the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SQSPCA) is nearing its end, with the opportunity for generous donations to benefit the organization. From November 28 through December 31, shelter supporters Beth and Gary Glynn have been donating an additional $5,000 to the SQSPCA for every $20,000 raised, up to $100,000.
According to Executive Director Stacie Haynes, this campaign is crucial for the SQSPCA’s ability to provide high-quality services. The support of individuals, businesses, and foundations in the region plays a vital role in the well-being of animals in the area.
The matching challenge, “Promise for Parkie,” named in memory of the Glynns’ dog, Parker, is an opportunity for the community to contribute to the welfare of animals in need. Haynes expressed gratitude to the Glynns for their ongoing support of the SQSPCA and its mission, emphasizing the special significance of their love for animals.
Thanks to the contributions from generous donors like the Glynns, the SQSPCA is able to provide crucial veterinary services to other animal shelters in the region, including monthly spay/neuter and vaccination services to the general public. Additionally, the organization now boasts a full-time veterinarian on staff and has established itself as a regional animal resource center.
Located just north of the Village of Cooperstown, the SQSPCA’s state-of-the-art building is named “Fenton and Nanette’s House” in recognition of the Glynns’ significant donation to the SHELTER US Capital Campaign. This facility, which opened in July of 2021, represents a new chapter in the organization’s efforts to support and care for animals.
As the “Promise for Parkie” campaign enters its final stretch, individuals interested in contributing to this cause can do so securely through the SQSPCA’s website. The potential to earn an additional $25,000, thanks to the Glynns’ matching challenge, underscores the importance of the community’s support for the welfare of animals in the region.
