PET LOVERS: Last Day to Donate to SQSPCA Fund Drive!

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – The “Promise for Parkie” fund drive, organized by the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SQSPCA), is coming to a close at midnight tonight. During this year-end fundraising effort, shelter supporters Beth and Gary Glynn have pledged to donate an additional $5,000.00 to the SQSPCA for every $20,000.00 raised, up to a total of $100,000.00.

Stacie Haynes, Executive Director of SQSPCA, emphasized the importance of this campaign, stating that it significantly impacts the services the organization can provide. Haynes added that the high-quality services currently offered by SQSPCA are made possible through the support of individuals, businesses, and foundations in the region who care about the welfare of animals.

The fundraising effort, named “Promise for Parkie,” serves as a memorial to the Glynns’ dog, Parker, and their enduring love for animals. Haynes expressed gratitude to the Glynns for their generous challenge and ongoing support of SQSPCA and its mission.

Thanks to contributions from donors like the Glynns, SQSPCA now offers monthly spay/neuter and vaccination services to the public, as well as veterinary services to other animal shelters in the region. Additionally, the organization has employed a full-time veterinarian and solidified its role as a regional animal resource center.

The new, state-of-the-art building that houses SQSPCA, known as “Fenton and Nanette’s House,” was made possible in part due to the Glynns’ significant donation to the SHELTER US Capital Campaign.

The “Promise for Parkie” campaign has been a crucial fundraising effort for SQSPCA, with donations being accepted online at The potential to earn an additional $25,000.00 through the Glynns’ matching challenge has motivated the organization to strive towards reaching its $100,000.00 goal.
