65.6 miles, 1503 feet of climbing

Chester County SPCA

Posted by charlespedaling4paws on June 28, 2012

After our trip back to West Chester, we visited the Chester County SPCA where Viktor Ohnjec presented a cheque of $1,820 to Kathryn Sippel, Operations Manager at the CC SPCA. These funds were raised with the sale of raffle tickets for a print called “Memories of Love” generously donated by renowned artist Juan Vela and framed by Visual Expansion Gallery of West Chester. We need to mention that one P4P rider generously donated $1000 the the CC SPCA above the raffle tickets and that donations are still coming in on behalf of P4P! What a great success story!

7 out of the 12 P4P 500 miles in 5 days cyclists were present and 8 who did the partial ride were not able to attend and were there in spirit!

So, we understand that our supported shelters received several big donations at $100, $200, $300 and even $1000! Can you add to your favorite shelter and let them know it’s in honor of Pedaling 4 Paws? Please do and let’s make the 2012 ride be a huge success by exceeding our $15000 goal in contributions! The 4 legged are barking and meowing a loud THANK YOU!

After taking pictures at the border, the P4P cyclists visited the St Lawrence Valley SPCA; what a great animal rescue facility, cats and dogs are well cared for and two cyclists who own weimaraners were sorry to see 2 weims waiting for their forever home. We drove back to Skaneateles, NY for the traditional last dinner together at Doug’s Fish Fries!

We walked on the pier by the lake and saw a dog jumping out of a boat tied to a slip while their owners went in town, the dog was pulled out of the water with Gary’s help and the P4P group went to find the owners in a nearby shop thanks to getting their description from people who saw them get off the boat. Good thing for this dog that we all saw him in the water! Most of us are driving home tonight, what a great week that was! Thank for following us this week!

Awesome relaxed ride this morning for the final 65 miles, we visited the Jefferson County SPCA and got a tour of the facility, they have lots of kittens for adoption, they receive kittens in boxes because many cat owners let their cats wander un spayed…got the signature group photo holding our bikes up. Last and final stop, the St Lawrence Valley SPCA!
