I am President of the Board of the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) of Hancock County. We are a non-profit animal welfare organization that operates a no-kill shelter in Trenton, ME. Since opening the doors of our expanded shelter in 2010, we have cared for and found new homes for hundreds of stray, surrendered and abandoned dogs and cats. Providing veterinary care, food and shelter for these animals is expensive and our organization primarily relies on the support of the public to keep our shelter doors open. Each year, I run the Acadia Half Marathon in Bar Harbor in early June. I am devoting this year's run to raising funds for the SPCA. All of your donations are tax-deductible. Feel free to donate online or by calling Cheryl at the SPCA at 207-667-8088.
