This cute pup, Oreo, an 8 year old boxer mix, has been at the Tompkins County SPCA for a few weeks. Do you have room in your home and heart for him?
He is precious, but was given to the SPCA when his family moved to smaller housing and couldn't take him along. To make matters worse, the staff thinks he was mistreated in the past. Poor Oreo shouldn't have to pay for people problems. The SPCA says the shelter is stressing him out a bit, and that he'd do well as an only dog, where his sweet personality can shine. Can you help him out? Why don't you visit him today!
The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning for the area. The Tompkins County Sheriff issued an emergency road closure this morning (now lifted) and classes at Ithaca College and Cornell were delayed until the afternoon.
Walter and I decided we better get prepared for the worst.
Please donate to the SPCA right now by following this link! A private family foundation is matching donations 1:1 through October 15.
From the Tompkins County SPCA:
Right now, you have an incredible opportunity to double your support of the animals in need.
A private family foundation has offered to match dollar-for-dollar - up to $20,000 - any gift you send by October 15th. While the economy is showing small signs of recovery, we have seen a decrease in critically important grant funding. That's why this challenge match is especially exciting!
• $50 will become $100
to provide food, shelter and unconditional love to an abandoned pet.
• $75 will become $150
to help spay or neuter an animal before adoption, helping us stem the tide of pet overpopulation.
• $100 will become $200
to provide veterinary care, vaccinations and preventative medications for some of the 3,000 animals who reach us each year.
Any amount you send will be doubled so that we can continue to serve our community as an open admission, No-Kill shelter, the first of our kind in the entire country. This matching opportunity couldn't be needed more. There is no better time to give than right now! As we celebrate 10 years of being open admission, No-Kill, we continue to struggle financially to provide unwanted, abandoned, and abused animals with food, water, shelter, medical care, and to find new families who will cherish them.
