SPCA OK'ed by Oneida County Board of Legislators

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Oneida County Board of Legislators passed a major vote for animal cruelty cases, Wednesday.

The Board voted unanimously to approve the new "Central New York SPCA," a team that will be in charge of cracking down on animal cruelty cases locally.

The approval marks a 1-year contract with the new organization, giving them $100,000 to begin their operations.

"So many people will call us and say that this animal is being abused, what can I do?" said Bonnie Jones Reynolds, of Spring Farm Cares. "We wouldn't be able to do anything except say, you have to call the police.

"Now we have a 911 number, a hotline, an email address, and we can address immediately any of the problems citizens run across with abuse."
