Recently, William Mattar, P.C., a firm deeply committed to community involvement and making a positive impact, held its annual Rescue a Shelter Animal pet photo contest. This fun event not only showcased the love we have for our pets but also emphasized the importance of supporting animal shelters.
The contest’s winner was Sammi, a charming pooch owned by Abbie & Pierre Milton. Along with receiving a $50 Chewy gift card for their pet, the Miltons made a benevolent choice by selecting the Niagara SPCA to receive a generous donation of $1,000 from William Mattar, P.C. This gesture not only highlighted the bond between humans and animals but also the spirit of giving back to those in need.
The Niagara SPCA, the beneficiary of this kindness, is a no-kill shelter dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of abandoned and unwanted animals. Their mission goes beyond just sheltering; they are an integral part of the community, fostering the human-animal bond and advocating for animal welfare.
The Niagara SPCA is home to a variety of cats and dogs, each with their own personality and needs:
Adopting a shelter pet is a rewarding experience. These animals often demonstrate an incredible amount of love and gratitude to their new families. They’re not just pets; they become loyal companions and cherished members of your household.
Even if you’re not ready to adopt, there are other ways to support the mission of the Niagara SPCA:
Contributions can be made online or mailed to Niagara SPCA, 2100 Lockport Road, Niagara Falls, NY 14304.
The Niagara SPCA’s Ambassador Program is a testament to their commitment. This monthly giving program ensures a steady flow of support, crucial for the shelter’s operations. Donors become Ambassadors, joining a special group of individuals dedicated to animal welfare. The impact of these donations is profound:
The Shelter Angel Planned Giving Program is another impactful initiative. It allows individuals to make a lasting difference through estate planning. By including the Niagara SPCA in their wills, benefactors ensure the continuity of the shelter’s mission and the care of animals in need for years to come.
Lastly, the Niagara SPCA’s mission relies heavily on community support. Private donations are their lifeline, especially as a no-kill shelter. Every contribution, large or small, plays a crucial role in sustaining their efforts and ensuring that every animal receives the love and care they deserve.
