Allen County SPCA Seeks to Meet $10,000 Match for GivingTuesday
(November 25, 2020) – The Allen County SPCA hopes to see record giving this GivingTuesday! On December 1, 2020, all gifts will be matched (up to $10,000) thanks to a number of generous sponsors.
“GivingTuesday is the single largest donation day of the year for us, and because we receive no tax dollars, it’s crucial to our lifesaving mission,” says Jessica Henry, Executive Director of the Allen County SPCA.
Now more than ever, the Allen County SPCA is committed to serving pets and the people who love them. All funds received on GivingTuesday will support our area’s pets and pet owners through comprehensive adoption and pet retention programs.
