Animal Shelter Seeks Funds for New Building

The Elmore SPCA in Peru, NY is asking for help to raise enough money to build a new facility that would provide the adequate housing for animals to get them out of the tiny cages they’re in.

“The shelter is over the top full and is having to put dogs in foldaway crates as they have no more room,” states an email. “They need these dogs to go to rescue or adoptive homes in order to make room to save dogs that are in danger.”

The Elmore SPCA is located in a temporary building as it is.

You can make donations through paypal to: [email protected] or click on http://www.elmorespca.org/donate.html to donate.
