UTICA - The Staffworks Fund and the Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties announced the record-breaking results of the 2019 Save A Life Campaign.

The campaign raised $1,844,350 from December 3 - 31, shattering the previous record of $680,804 set in 2018.

The program matched community donations for 29 animal welfare organizations in 13 different counties.

The Stevens-Swan Humane Society, Herkimer County Humane Society, Rome Humane Society and Susquehanna SPCA are just some of the animal care organizations receiving the money.

“Some of the money that was donated this year will be going toward our capital fund, some of it will be going toward our annual fund. Also, because of Zoe, the German Shepherd, this year we started an emergency medical fund and some of the money was designated to that too,” said Susquehanna SPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes.

The Susquehanna SPCA in Cooperstown alone raised more than $236,000 in donations, the most out of the 29 campaigns that participated this year. $30,000 from the Save A Life Campaign will be added to that total.

“The Staffworks Fund Save A Life Campaign demonstrates the power of a regional collaborative fundraising effort. We have proven that pulling together for animals in need is a winning strategy. We join our fellow animal advocates and community donors in creating humane communities,” said Anita Vitullo, Save A Life Campaign founder.

The Save A Life Campaign has raised more than $3 million dollars for non-profit organizations since its inception in 2014. Campaign funds are used for daily animal care, adoption and medical needs, and spay and neuter services.
