Two Pork Bellied Piggies Need Your Help at the SPCA’s annual PAWS WALK June 7th.

The Need for Help Never Ends. Just the other day we took in 2 severely neglected pot bellied pigs, 4 parakeets, 4 stray cats, one baby duckling and a litter of newborn kittens–and that was all before we opened the doors to the public for the day. Please help ensure we’ll remain a safe place for animals by joining us for the PAWS Walk on June 7th, 2015.

Think what would happen if the animals had nowhere to turn…if animal lovers like you stopped caring about the welfare of animals in the community.

We need your help! Fundraising and participation for Paws Walk (our biggest event) is significantly down this year and we are concerned that the funds may not be there when the animals need them. The $125,000 goal isn’t just a big number we throw out there…those are the hard costs of what it takes to make sure that every unwanted, lost or injured animal that comes to us over the next three months will get the helping hand they need until we find them loving homes.
Please take action, and help make sure that animals continue to have a safe place to turn… REGISTER NOW or SUPPORT A WALKER today!

Thank you for your continued support.
