Susquehanna SPCA to host Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic

COOPERSTOWN – The Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) is excited to announce that it will host a feline low cost spay/neuter clinic on Friday, February 15, 2018. This clinic is being held in collaboration with Dr. Joan Puritz and Dr. Bret Meckel and is open to the public. It will take place at the shelter, located at 4841 State Highway 28 between Cooperstown and Oneonta.

“February is nationally recognized as Spay/Neuter Awareness Month,” explained Susquehanna SPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes. “We want to help animals in need beyond the walls of our shelter and raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering cats to reduce unwanted populations. This is a perfect opportunity to expand our services while helping offset the price of these procedures.”

The Susquehanna SPCA will donate profits from this event to a local partner, the Greater Oneonta Fund for Animal Responsibility (GOFAR). GOFAR is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to reducing the number of homeless, unwanted, and euthanized animals in the greater Oneonta area through education, raising funds to help finance the costs of spaying and neutering, helping strays (trap, neuter, release), and by helping local shelters. “We are grateful to the folks at GOFAR for all their good work and proud to call GOFAR a partner organization. They give so much and are instrumental in helping reduce the unwanted pet population in our region. This is a way to give something back to them,” Haynes said.

The February 15 feline low cost spay/neuter clinic has 40 spots available for 25 males and 15 females which can be secured by calling the Susquehanna SPCA at (607) 547-8111, extension 102. Appointments will be filled on a first call, first serve basis. The fee per cat is $60 and includes a spay/neuter with sedation, dewormer, rabies and distemper vaccinations, flea treatment, a nail trim, and an ear clean. To learn more about the Susquehanna SPCA, visit or call (607) 547-8111.

Save A Life Campagin

This holiday season, you can help save an animal’s life by donating to the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and having that gift matched dollar-for-dollar. The Staffworks Charitable Fund Save A Life Campaign is matching donations made beginning on Monday, November 26, through December 31.
In addition to matching up to a total of $10,000 from individual donors, the Staffworks Charitable Fund is also awarding a $10,000 bonus to the organization that receives the largest number of donations from individual donors and a $10,000 bonus to the organization that raises the most money during the campaign.
Every organization participating in the Staffworks Charitable Fund Save A Life Campaign has the opportunity to receive a total of $30,000 from the Staffworks Charitable Fund.
“We are honored to be part of the Save A Life Campaign,” said Susquehanna SPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes. “Anita Vitullo is an extraordinary leader making a significant and positive impact on the lives of homeless animals in need. Our goal for this campaign is to raise a minimum of $10,000 so we can receive the full $10,000 match, making our total raised $20,000! With $20,000 we can schedule an estimated 100 spays or neuters through our local veterinarians,” Haynes explained.
The Staffworks Charitable Fund at The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties was created by Staffworks founder and owner, Anita Vitullo, out of her concern for animals and her belief in their right to life. The Fund promotes humane communities by using company profits from branch office markets in central and southern New York to support organizations that provide care for at-risk animals.
“When you support or adopt from your local animal shelters and rescue organizations you are choosing to save an animal’s life,” Staffworks Charitable Fund Founder Anita Vitullo said. “We’ve invested more than $10 million to reduce animal suffering and help make connections between animals and people.”
To double the impact of your gift, visit and select Susquehanna SPCA. Online gifts can be made via MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express credit or debit cards. Gifts by personal check must be mailed to The Community Foundation, 2608 Genesee St., Utica, NY 13502 and should be made payable to The Community Foundation, with the name of the recipient organization indicated in the memo field.
