CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango County SPCA Spay Neuter Assistance Program raised more than $1,000 in its 5th Annual Fall Mum Sale, a portion of that due to the generosity and commitment of a Norwich fifth-grader.
According to SNAP founder Diane Troxell, 10-year-old Tessa Markham, a student at Perry Browne Intermediate School, purchased $90 worth of mums to support the program.
“She saved money for a year from birthdays and holidays,” said Troxell. “Tessa has been brought up to respect animals. She is an advocate for spaying and neutering all pets.”
