We have all watched the commercials on television.
The sad music that plays while pictures of neglected animals in cages shows on the screen. It is a very sad truth. Animals are neglected, abused, and abandoned every day. There are rescues and shelters in every community that spend long emotionally draining, and frustrating hours rescuing these animals. We haven’t really even started to make a dent in the problems. Communities have to work together and it starts at the beginning. We have to stop the problem before it starts. We have to have funding to do that. You can make a difference. You can help.
While those commercials are very powerful the truth is that the money donated to those organizations keep the money that is donated. Many people think that all shelters are somehow connected and all get a share. This is not what happens. The money donated to them stays at that organization. The ASPCA is a shelter located in New York. They do great work, in New York. The animals here in our community need help just as much. If you want to support the local shelters and rescues please donate directly to that charity.
We need the financial support of our community to continue to grow and offer more needed services. The question we get asked the most is “How can we help?” There are many ways. The SPCA always needs the donation of old blankets, towels, office supplies, lawn equipment, etc. If you have used it at your home we most likely need it at the SPCA. We have five acres we have to maintain for the animals! We have a wish list posted here!
Another way is by donating an unused car, boat, RV, etc. The person donating takes the tax write-off and the company that handles the program for us picks up the car and sells it at auction giving the SPCA the proceeds. If you have a vehicle that you would like to donate the phone number is 888-686-4483 and be sure to tell them the Solano County SPCA is your charity or you can click here.
You can donate to our general fund meaning the donation goes to the daily care of the animals in residence at the SPCA of Solano County. The other option is you can donate to a specific project or area. Some of our donors want to help support the cats, or get beds for the dogs, etc. Then there is the opportunity to help fund a big project. We currently are raising money to expand the deck on our spay/neuter clinic and putting in two public dog parks!! We have big plans for our community and we need the help to make them a reality.
