Kicking off on Giving Tuesday (11/29), the SQSPCA and it’s supporters have been challenged by Beth and Gary Glynn to meet a holiday goal of raising $125,000 by the end of December (12/31). For every $20,000 raised, the Glynn’s will donate $5,000, up to $100,000 making the total campaign goal $125,000.
“This challenge comes at a crucial time, as it takes the place of the Save A Life Campaign the shelter has participated in for the last several years, just in case folks have been holding their donations for the start of that fund drive,” Haynes added.
The Glynn’s matching challenge, “Promise for Parkie,” is a memoriam to their dog, Parker, one of several beloved Glynn family dachshunds who has crossed the rainbow bridge.
“Beth and Gary’s love for animals in general, and for their dachshunds in particular, is something really special,” Haynes continued. “We cannot thank them enough for this generous challenge or for their ongoing support of the SQSPCA and our mission.”
Thanks to their significant donation to the SHELTER US Capital Campaign, the SQSPCA’s state-of-the-art building – which opened in July of 2021 – is called “Fenton and Nanette’s House,” also named for cherished dachshunds the Glynns have loved and lost.
Giving Tuesday, traditionally the Tuesday after Thanksgiving since its inception in 2012, is a national day of giving back to good causes. Contributions to the “Promise for Parkie” campaign can be made safely and securely from Tuesday, November 29 through Saturday, December 31 online at www.sqspca.org/donate/, by mail at 5082-5088 State Highway 28, Cooperstown, NY 13326, or in person.
