3 Ways to Give Back to Our Community's Homeless Animals
Christmas Gift Goal
Give a homeless pet the ultimate gift - a forever home
Our number one mission is to find forever homes for the over 1,200 homeless and neglected animals we take in every year. In 2019, our intake totals have risen far beyond our capacity and we have seen far too many residents wait months on end for their new family. To assist in finding homes for these amazing companions before the holidays, we will host a one-day-only ‘Clear the Shelter’ event on Saturday, December 7th (11 am to 4:30 pm) at the SPCA Albrecht Center (199 Willow Run Road in Aiken).
With nearly 170 pets available for adoption, and many, many more waiting for their chance to shine on our adoption floors, we have companions for every kind of loving family. Even better, ALL of these pets will be available fee-waived!
If you are interested in adopting, please bring a valid driver’s license, up-to-date vaccination records for any current pets and a carrier if you are adopting a cat or a leash if you are adopting a dog.
Give a homeless pet the peace of mind of vet care & supplies
Giving Tuesday, on Tuesday, December 3rd, is a wonderful time to contribute to whatever cause is close to your heart. The SPCA Albrecht Center will be participating with a Facebook fundraiser, with a goal of $1,935 to commemorate the year we were incorporated – 1935 – as we enter our 85th year of working with the CSRA to save lives. As a 501c3 organization, contributions made to the SPCA are used resourcefully to ensure they are going solely towards bettering the lives of the animals in our care through vet care or supplies.
SANTA PAWS DRIVE
Give a homeless pet a gift to open on Christmas
Throughout the month of December, as you’re shopping for presents for loved ones, consider picking up a small donation for the homeless animals in our care. The SPCA Albrecht Center is asking for supply donations to be gift-wrapped and dropped off or sent to the SPCA, at 199 Willow Run Road, to place under our Christmas tree for the animals in our care. Whether it’s a toy or a treat, we hope to have a gift for all of our animals to open on Christmas. On Christmas Day, SPCA staff will film a video for our supporters of the animals waking up to special gifts under the tree, all thanks to you!
