NORWICH - Tables and crates are overflowing with over 100 colorful plush stuffed animals of all sizes and shapes at the Chenango County SPCA, donated by the Gund Foundation and Bartle’s Pharmacy. For a donation of $10, you can adopt one of these delightful creatures at the CCSPCA’s 3rd Annual Valentine Fur Ball on February 10th at the Canasawacta Country Club, and receive an official Adoption Certificate. Proceeds will benefit CCSPCA.
Typically when you adopt a pet from the CCSPCA, you then have to feed it, train it and take it to a vet. The unique thing about this adoption, other than the fact that no housebreaking or litter training is needed, is that all of these adopted animals don’t go home with you. They will all be given to Catholic Charities of Chenango County for children in their Domestic Violence & Crime Victims Program, which provides support, counseling, referrals, education and safe housing for victims of domestic violence and their dependent children. These cuddly stuffed animals will help give a sense of comfort and security for children in stressful situations.
