“We are very excited to be teaming up with Staffworks Fund again this year. The money raised will be used for the care of the animals, which accounts for over 70 percent of Regional’s expenses. During the 2019, Save a Life Campaign, Regional raised almost $40,000, which allowed Regional to remain fully operational during COVID.” Renee Earl, president of Regional SPCA said. “Many of the animals that come to the shelter, whose owners do not come forward, are sick, underweight, and sorely in need of veterinary care and a stable environment. We are proud to be able to help these animals on their road to wellness and ultimately find their forever homes. We look forward to continuing to serve our community which is only possible with the continued support of our community. With the grant provided by the Staffworks Fund, all gifts will be matched during this campaign and it is a wonderful opportunity for the neediest animals in our community.”
Anita Vitullo, founder of the Save a Life Campaign stated, “COVID has significantly affected fundraising efforts for many organizations that provide direct care and support services for homeless and abused animals, spay/neuter programs, and pet food pantries. While they are devoted to helping underserved animals, they cannot provide crucial services without our donations. Funds raised and matched during this campaign will sustain these organizations’ operations and programs through 2021.”
