The youth in Tompkins County contribute a lot for the animals at the SPCA!
For birthdays, holidays, and other gift-giving occasions, youth can ask friends and family to make monetary or in-kind donations to the SPCA of Tompkins County in his or her honor in lieu of gifts. Please see our wish list of needed items, or visit our online donation page by clicking HERE.
Tia Bernagozzi (above) raised $300 for the SPCA in December 2009 and several gifts were made in her honor after the following letter to the editor was published in the Ithaca Journal on December 16, 2009:
Help Animals Instead!
Dear Kids of Ithaca,
Instead of asking for presents this year, I am trying to raise $200 for the SPCA. The SPCA really needs all kinds of supplies to take care of all the animals. Also, the money will help with paying for veterinary bills. Looking around my room, I sure don't need any presents - but the animals at the SPCA really do. Tell your friends and family to give to the SPCA instead of presents for you this year. If you want to, look at www.spcaonline.com to look at all the dogs and cats who need your help.
