A BIG thank you to Rebecca Green for all of her hard work collecting donations for the animals at the ACSPCA!!!! Rebecca decided on her own and took it upon herself to place bins in businesses around Littlestown to collect goodies for the homeless animals! What a wonderful thing for such a young lady to do!!! Thank you Rebecca!!! Many happy tail wags and meows sent your way!!!
On Feb. 23rd, the American Legion in Gettysburg hosted a Zumbathon to benefit the Adams County SPCA shelter animals!! This event raised over $400 for the animals! Looks like everyone had a great time!!
Thank you to everyone who came out and got your groove on and helped the homeless animals of Adams County!!!
The Student Council of the Arendtsville Elementary School held a paper flower fundraiser and raised $210 for the animals at the ACSPCA !! Plus they also collected many toys, cat litter and office supplies. We were thrilled that these students are interested in our SPCA and our mission. We deeply appreciate their generosity and care and concern for animals!!!
The Adams County Winery’s husband and wife team of John Kramb
and Katherine Bigler presented a $4,496.35 check to the ACSPCA!
Winery owner Katherine Bigler (right) and mascot Rusty (front) presented the $4,496.35 check to Joan Stemmel, Adams County SPCA Board President (left), and Abby Avery, Shelter Manager (center), during an SPCA Board Meeting on Sunday, January 27.
The donation, representing the winery’s cooperative fundraising efforts throughout 2012, marks the sixth consecutive year of support to the not-for-profit group on the part of the winery.
Last year’s lead fundraising event for the Shelter was the Third Annual Rusty’s Birthday Bash on June 30, held in celebration of the winery’s Golden Retriever VIP (very important pet). Hundreds of visiting dogs and their human companions enjoyed music, food, demonstrations, custom wine labels for pets and people, and a Rusty’s Sidekick photo contest. Lilly, a Labradoodle, was the winner of the contest as decided via onsite and online voting, and appeared on every label of Rusty’s Red wine sold by the winery during the month of August. The winery donated $1 to the Adams County SPCA for each bottle sold during the month, accounting for more than $1,200 of the total 2012 donation. Donations to the Adams County SPCA can be made year-round at the farm winery, 251 Peach Tree Road in Orrtanna, as well as at its Wine Shop at 25C in downtown Gettysburg. Rusty, adopted in 2008, remains a top attraction at the pet- and family-friendly winery. The 2013 Birthday Bash is scheduled for Saturday, June 15.
