Susquehanna SPCA Capital Campaign

The Susquehanna SPCA is trying to raise two million dollars to build a new facility

Posted: Nov 29, 2018 6:11 PM

The Susquehanna SPCA’s building has a number of problems that make the building difficult to work in. Some of the problems are drafty doors, there’s water leaks in areas, storage space is at a minimum, and workspaces are overcrowded. Susquehanna SPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes says that’s on top of an already difficult job.

"People burn out so quickly because it’s exhausting and a lot of times it’s really sad, so the better we can make it for volunteers, and visitors, and staff, the better it’s going to be for animals, and the more animals we’re going to be able to help."

Right now dogs, cats, employees, visitors, and volunteers all come through one door, and that creates problems.

"We’ll have an entrance for folks who are coming in to visit, and an entrance for folks who are surrendering an animal, and so that has to do with like disease control as we mentioned before and privacy for folks who are surrendering an animal, but so the logistics of that will be very different because as it is right now, everybody who works in the office is sitting at the front door."

In order to build a new facility, they’re asking for the public’s help. Any donation from now through the end of December will be matched by the Staffworks Save a Life Campaign. A new building will not only increase efficiency with heating and cooling, but will also increase work flow and most importantly help the animals, but the staff isn’t waiting for a new building to be built before they start making improvements.

"We also have moved all of our files electronic, and that’s all part of it, because in the new building we’re not all going to be sitting on top of each other. You know we’re going to need to be more reliant on technology, and so we’ve already started to get that ball rolling."

Stacie Haynes tells us they’re going to break ground in the spring and expect to be in the building by March of 2020.
