Group Cites Record Accomplishments in Distributed Aid & Support in    2011

 

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SPCA International (www.spcai.org)       announces a renewed focus on refugee animals in crisis due to natural       disasters, famine, political turmoil or war in 2012. The animal rights       group expects to send millions more in supply aid to struggling shelters       worldwide. SPCA International distributed over $7 million in medical aid       and supplies to shelters in Panama, Kuwait, Tanzania, Guatemala and Hong       Kong. Thanks to donors and achieving program growth goals, SPCA       International distributed more financial grants to shelters domestically       and globally than ever before.

“2011 was our most successful year of operations to date and we look       forward to supporting and collaborating with even more animal shelters       and rescue groups in 2012”

“2011 was our most successful year of operations to date and we look       forward to supporting and collaborating with even more animal shelters       and rescue groups in 2012,” said Stephanie Scott of the SPCA       International. “Our mission is truly a global effort and we are       determined to see that this year we reach even more areas in need of       attention domestically and around the world. In Panama alone, we were       able to spay and neuter more than 1,100 dogs and cats in just one       weekend last September.”

SPCA International completed and surpassed its 100th‘Operation Baghdad Pups’ mission to the Middle East in 2011 and the       famous program is back at work this week with teams traveling to Iraq to       save more desperate animals who U.S. troops were forced to leave behind       during the withdrawal. Through ongoing efforts these true military       heroes will be reunited with the soldiers that love them very soon.

“In 2012 we hope to distribute more than $9 million in medical supply       aid worldwide. Our team is also poised to respond to more international       crises than ever before, which will allow us to increase the numbers of       animals we reach significantly. We encourage supporters to watch for fun       changes coming to our website, spcai.org, early in the year. The       redesigned site will engage, educate and activate people like never       before,” said Scott.
