Dear Friends,

It's that time of the year again when we ask you to make a commitment to the needy animals and the programs of the Finger Lakes SPCA by becoming a Guardian Angel. It is essential that we have a constant flow of donations to support our animal friends in need and humane programs all year round. Every day, we are called upon and do our best to make a positive difference in as many lives as we are able. Frequently, this means helping orphaned and abused animals by admitting them into our shelter for care while they wait for their forever homes. Just as frequently, this means helping human beings by providing program assistance, therapeutic volunteer opportunities, humane education and/or a referral to support the human-companion animal bond.

These good works that save lives, reduce suffering and make our community kinder and safer are not reported on daily in the news, but they, in fact, happen every single day at the FLSPCA. Predictable revenues are vital to help ensure humane program stability and dependable standards of animal care throughout the whole year for as many animals as possible. The difficult and demanding job of speaking and caring for those who cannot speak for themselves is an every day job - that is simply not possible without you! Please, won't you consider becoming a Guardian Angel to lend a hand all year round? If you would prefer not to make a monthly commitment, a one-time donation of any amount will still help so much!

Executive Director

Why Should You Adopt From an Animal Shelter?

"Animal shelters are your best source when looking for a pet. Not only do they have a great selection of adult animals for adoption, but they also have kittens and puppies, even purebred animals. In fact, on average, purebreds account for about 25% to 30% of a shelter's dog population... [more]"
