MONTHLY DONATION PROGRAM
June 2017 – SPCA of Westchester
Part of our annual giving includes making a donation each month to an organization chosen by a member of our team. This June, Caroline Jones, Marketing & Research, chose the SPCA of Westchester.
The SPCA of Westchester was founded in 1883 by Ossining resident Mary Dusenberry after she observed horses being mercilessly whipped and beaten as they trudged up nearby hills to deliver heavy loads of coal. Together with caring friends, she obtained land on which to build the Society’s first home and established a fund to be used to prevent cruelty to animals. The SPCA is still located on the same spot, making it one of the oldest landholders in Briarcliff Manor.
Today, it is the only humane society in Westchester County empowered to enforce laws relating to animal cruelty. Despite this, the SPCA gets no federal, state, or county funds. So they rely solely on the financial support of people who care about the welfare of animals.
“The SPCA is a no-kill shelter committed to caring for and rehabilitating abused and homeless animals until they can find a new home. Other programs offered by SPCA include cruelty investigation and intervention, low-cost veterinary care, transportation and rescue. As a dog owner I feel especially responsible for making sure as a community we advocate and provide a safe environment for all animals in need.”
