August 2016 Elmore SPCA News & Updates
Harsh Winter Winds
Bring Need For Roof Repairs

Age and strong wind has taken its toll on the shelter roof, making replacement necessary.  

In preparation, Elmore has been busy gathering numerous material quotes, and establishing a volunteer work crew to do the needed repair.  Currently, anticipated m aterial costs are expected to be $1900 to $2100, depending on the extent of damage found as roof shingles are removed.  

Now, all we need to make this happen is you.  Your donation to the  Roof Replacement Fund  ensures that no dollars are taken away from daily animal shelter operational needs .  Your tax deductible donation can be made electronically using  NYCharities , or by traditional donation methods.   Please mark donations as  Roof Replacement Fund .  Thank you for your generosity

Affectionately Cats Spay Clinic in Williston VT now offers a reduced cost "package deal" for altering cats and kittens.  For $60, your feline is spay or neutered, given rabies and distemper vaccines, and if needed, receives treatments for fleas and ear mites.  An additional $10 fee (per household) will be assessed by Elmore to defray transportation expenses.
The Elmore SPCA monthly spay/neuter transport is a single day process, offering community residents three convenient transport drop off/pickup areas.  They include our shelter (Telegraph Road, Peru), Tractor Supply parking lot (Plattsburgh) and Maplefield's/Dunkin Donuts/A&W parking lot (Route 9 Plattsburgh). 
For a rabies vaccine to be administered kittens must be at least three months old.  The clinic accepts cats in heat, and will also perform pregnant spays.  
For more information or to schedule, please call Carol at 534-3484.  The next transport is Wednesday, August 17.  

Do you have a dog or cat in need of altering?  Are you finding the cost out of reach? The Elmore SPCA non-income based spay/neuter assistance program may be the program for you.  SNIP voucher amounts include cat spay $50 and neuter $40, and dog spay $75 and neuter $50. This program provides a $500 monthly fund balance for the issuance of vouchers. Once this amount is reached, no additional vouchers will be issued until the following month.

Go to the  Elmore website for a dditional program information, and to download a SNIP application.  Completed applications can then be emailed, mailed, or dropped of at the shelter. All approved vouchers must be picked up at the shelter within one week of issuance. 

Although most local veterinary offices accept Elmore SNIP vouchers, please contact your veterinarian prior to applying to assure that they are participating in our program.

SNIP is a community service program. Its purpose is to help control animal overpopulation, while providing health and behavioral benefits.  For it to exist, we need your support.  Donations to SNIP can be made through traditional methods, or electronically using NYCharities. Please note any donation to this program as SNIP Donation.
