Profits from golf tourney will aid homeless, abandoned animals

SPRINGFIELD – The fourth annual Par for Paws Golf Tournament to benefit the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SQSPCA) is set to take place on Friday, September 20 at the Otsego Golf Club. Located on the shores of Otsego Lake just nine miles from Cooperstown, the Otsego Golf Club is one of America’s oldest and most beautiful courses.

“This event is ideal for people who love golf, love animals, and who appreciate the history and picturesque greens of the Otsego Golf Club,” said SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes. “We’re delighted to be teeing off from the Otsego Golf Club again this year.”

The 18-hole tournament will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start and will be a four person team scramble. Registration is $300 per team and includes 18 holes, golf cart, breakfast, and lunch. Raffles and prizes will be awarded.

Profits from this event will provide much-needed funds to help the SQSPCA fulfil its mission of caring for homeless and abandoned dogs and cats from across the region. These animals are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and treated for illness or malnutrition if necessary before they are adopted out to a loving new home.

Registration for sponsors and teams for the Par for Paws Golf Tournament is currently underway. If your business or organization is interested in supporting this event or you have a team to register, please e-mail [email protected] or call (607) 547-8111, extension 101.

In operation since 1917, the Susquehanna SPCA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to caring for homeless, surrendered, and seized companion animals and finding them loving, forever homes. The SQSPCA is a privately funded, state inspected animal shelter practicing “no-kill” philosophies. Private donations, grants, fundraising and the New Leash on Life Thrift Shop are the shelter’s only source of income. For more information or to donate, visit
