Meet Sam Adams, Finger Lakes SPCA Featured Pet

Finger Lakes SPCA | Featured Pet | Sam Adams

Sam Adams is one of our friendliest cats available for adoption. He is a young adult neutered male who has the loudest purr and enjoys being handled so much. He did not fuss at all for his vaccines or viral testing. He just wants someone to love him. Sam, while currently healthy, did test positive for FIV.

 

Unfortunately, there is currently no definitive cure for FIV. It is important to realize, however, that while it is impossible to predict the survival of a given cat infected with FIV, cats infected with FIV can live long and healthy lives.

 

For more information about FIV click here and consult with your veterinarian.

 

Adoptions are by appointment only. To schedule an appointment and/or to find out more about Sam Adams, call 607-776-3039 11 am to 4 pm except (Thursday and Sunday-Closed).

 

Sam’s adoption fee is being waived thanks to the generosity of a sponsor.

Dear Friends,

 

In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation and in-line with our local and state officials’ recommendations for social distancing, Finger Lakes SPCA has made the following adjustments to our operations for the immediate future and until further notice.

 

Animal adoptions and animal intakes will be by appointments.

 

If you need to surrender an animal or have interest in adopting a specific animal, please call us at 607-776-3039 first for an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled between the hours of 11 am and 4 pm on Mon, Tue, Wed. Fri. and Sat.

 

If you are looking to see what wonderful animals we have available, please check our website: fingerlakesspca.org and continue to follow our Facebook page!
While we appreciate our community’s support and visitation, we are asking for your help in limiting the number of people coming through our doors in the immediate future. We are requesting that all recreational visitors to the shelter and shop visitors (shop is closed) stay home until we receive further guidance from government officials regarding COVID 19.

 

As always, to report animal cruelty in Steuben County or if you have other emergencies, call 911.

 

We will keep you updated as to any other changes to program or event scheduling. Thank you for our cooperation and support.

 

Vicki Mosgrove, E.D.

KEEPING ANIMALS SAFE AMID COVID-19

 

Dear Friends,

 

We will be holding our Paws & Pairings Virtual Event on Friday, June 26, 2020.

 

This is our signature fundraiser (albeit virtual this year because of COVID-19) and the proceeds will help us to provide care for local homeless animals at our shelter. In a nutshell, the event will be symbolic, but the proceeds will be real and will still help us to keep our doors open and continue our lifesaving work.

 

Our virtual event will feature A Big Ticket Raffle ($1,250 Value). You are not going to want to miss this extraordinary opportunity. You could be the winner of the Grand Prize: A $500 Amazon Gift Card, $500 Top’s Gift Card and A $250 GCP Discount Liquors Gift Card.

 

This year, 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. We will announce this year’s community award recipients on social media. Moreover, we will also have additional prize raffles.

 

We hope you will consider buying symbolic event and/or raffle tickets or becoming a sponsor of our virtual event. Our sponsors will still receive recognition and other perks. Your generous contribution will benefit the animals entrusted to our care. Many of which come to us with little to no veterinary care, sick and/or injured and require extensive rehabilitation efforts to become healthy and adoptable. Without your significant kindness and financial support, we would be unable to provide for animals in need.

 

Visit Fingerlakesspca.org for sponsorship opportunities and additional virtual event and raffle ticket information.

 

Thank you for considering a contribution that will help us provide care for local homeless animals. Please contact us if you have any questions or need more information about this year’s virtual event.

 

Over the past few months, the coronavirus pandemic has greatly affected our lives, and I recognize this is a challenging time for all of us.

 

As we work to navigate these significant challenges, I’d like to thank our community members who continually support the lifesaving work we do. We can only keep our doors open and be prepared for emergency situations like this with the help of dedicated supporters like you.

 

We hope you will support this year’s Paws and Pairings Virtual Event. Help us remain prepared for the unknown and maintain our ability to help vulnerable animals who depend on us.

 

Vicki S. Mosgrove,

 

Executive Director

Finger Lakes SPCA Barn Cat Program

Finger Lakes SPCA Barn Cat ProgramNEEDED – BARN CAT HOMES FOR INDEPENDENT &
SEMI-FERAL Cats!!

 

Our barn cat program reaches out to those with a working barn or safe, heated outbuilding. Having a barn cat or cats will help keep down the rodent population. The cats will be helping the property owner, while the property owner provides the cats with a safe place to live. And, because these cats are already spayed/neutered, the property owner won’t have to worry about endless litters of kittens appearing! They are also rabies vaccinated.

 

What you’ll need:

 

  • Shelter in barns, buildings, or stables
  • Daily food and water – cats cannot live on mousing alone
  • Long-term veterinary care, as needed (they’re neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption)
  • A secure place to keep them for the first 2-3 weeks, while they acclimate to the barn. This can be a tack room, or any secure indoor enclosure that they cannot escape from. (The shelter will lend you an introduction crate and temporary housing supplies if needed.)

FLSPCA currently has a number of cats who cannot live as house pets. Cats in our barn cat program fall into these categories:

 

  • Cats who are just too independent to appreciate being cooped up in cages in the shelter.
  • Cats who are shy/fearful of people, and prefer the company of other cats and animals.
  • Cats whose litterbox habits make them unsuitable for house pets.

Please note: We do not adopt cats who are suitable to be house pets to barns, only cats without other options.

 

We prefer to adopt cats in this program in pairs. A nominal adoption fee of forty dollars for two cats helps us recover some of the expense for medical care provided.

 

Barn cat homes are reviewed for their ability to help provide for the ongoing basic needs and reasonable safety of the cats. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST TO HELP US SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THIS PROGRAM.

 

Call 607-622-5363 to learn more about participating cats or visit our 72 Cameron St. location in Bath between 11 and 4 p.m. except (closed Thursday and Sunday).
