Welcome to the Finger Lakes SPCA

The Finger Lakes SPCA is our region's source for companion-animal supportive care services and humane education. Check out the animals in our care that make great family companions.

Dear Friends,

We will be hosting our Paws & Pairings Gala at the Pleasant Valley Wine Company Visitor Center on Friday, June 3rd, 2016 from 6:00-9:00pm. This is our signature fundraiser as well as an opportunity for us to highlight our orphan animal care services and vital programs which support the human-companion animal bond. Additionally, we will again be recognizing members of our community who uphold the values of our organization and who help to make our area kinder and safer for both animals and people.

Our Paws & Pairings Gala will feature Pleasant Valley wines and champagne and will be catered to provide a delicious array of foods. The night will also be made memorable by our extraordinary silent auction, raffles and live music. Guests will also learn the latest progress update of the River's Edge Capital Campaign and the construction of our new shelter.

We hope you will consider becoming a sponsor of our event. Your generous contribution will benefit both the animals entrusted to our care and our humane programs. Without your significant kindness and financial support, we would be unable to provide for animals in need or provide services that prevent animal cruelty and animal homelessness. The attached sponsorship form describes how your contribution will be featured in our promotional materials and communications. To ensure your inclusion in advanced promotional materials, we would need your commitment to a sponsorship on or before Monday, May 2nd.

Thank you for considering a contribution that will help us to reduce and prevent animal suffering in Steuben County. Please contact us if you have any questions or need more information. Moreover, we hope you will join us at the Paws & Pairings Gala which is sure to be an evening of excitement that you are not going to want to miss!

We Need You're Help!

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!

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]"
