Visiting the Jefferson County SPCA

Posted by vohnjec on June 26, 2010

After grabbing some breakfast grub, we rolled into the Jefferson County SPCA in Watertown. The place is run by a family with mom, Lauren, taking us on a tour while YNN reporter, Amanda, tracking the discussion and waiting patiently for the chance to interview us about Pedaling4Paws.

In our discussion, we learned that the SPCA greatly appreciated our support and that they need more than just cash donations. They said that they have a “wish list” which typically includes blankets, newspaper, food (cat/dog food, mostly), and non-clumping cat litter. Like most non-profits, the depend on the kindness of local businesses and individuals and liked the idea of local bike clubs, businesses or other groups helping to collect any and all donations with one person then delivering the donations to their location. They also greatly appreciate these donations and any volunteer or “voluntold” hours people can offer to help with running the facility. Amazing stuff!

Like all shelters, they have many, many beautiful animals to adopt and would love to find them all great homes!!

Oh, and as soon as YNN publishes Amanda’s report, we will update the blog and website, so stay tuned!
