UTICA, N.Y. -- Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised to help with local animal initiatives.

Staffwork's Save a Life campaign has raised more than $680,000 for animal welfare programs.

These record breaking results will support 18 animal welfare organizations.

Representatives from Staffworks charitable fund and the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida counties were on hand to announce the record breaking results.

A total of $465,000 came from the community and the other $215,000 came from matching funds and bonus money.

“There's no feeling like funding a mission that's so worthy. We're talking about lives here, living creatures. We're talking about our responsibility as the higher order to take care of these animals that are at risk, in need, starving, abused, abandoned and neglected -- right in our own communities," said Anita Vitullo, the president at Staffworks.
