FLSPCA Please Help | Donate Today

Dear Friends:


I am writing to tell you about one of our most important fundraising events, our 9th Annual “Play Fore Paws” golf tournament. It will occur on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at the beautiful BATH COUNTRY CLUB course. This year’s golf event will feature a noon SHOTGUN START. Last year’s tournament was our most successful ever, and we received great feedback. Based on that success and input, we are planning to make this year’s tournament even more enjoyable! Please see the enclosed event brochure for more information including format, planned activities, prize details and please sign-up!


In addition to recruiting individuals and teams to sign up for the tournament, our organization is seeking out corporate, civic, business and individual sponsors for critical support. In return for their help, all sponsors will receive recognition in the “Play Fore Paws” program, in addition to knowing their generous support will benefit a very worthy cause! The enclosed brochure details the various sponsorship opportunities, some of which include 18 holes of golf for 4 and other distinctive perks. Last year’s tournament raised over $14,000 for our animal friends. Our overall fundraising goal for this year’s event is $15,000.


Monies raised from the golf tournament are crucial to see our animal care and humane programs through the year. These initiatives are critical to both the people and animals within our community. Your support on any level is always welcomed and greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. We hope you will help support “Play Fore Paws” and that you won’t miss what is sure to be a memorable day of fun and golf for all!

Finger Lakes SPCA Barn Cat Program



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).
