Two local residents, Tracie Heavner and Jim Frith, have put forth a $25,000 new donor match challenge to help fund the SPCA’s Louise R. Lester Spay & Neuter Clinic, projected to open in this fall.
The clinic is an initiative to meet the critical need for spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations, and microchipping for both shelter animals and residents with financial barriers to this basic veterinary service.
Heavner and Frith will match dollar for dollar all donations of $100 or more from individuals and businesses who have not donated to the SPCA since Jan. 1, 2020.
“Tracie and I are hoping to bring awareness to the critical need for this surgical suite at the SPCA and to broaden the base of support in our community for an organization that works tirelessly to care for our homeless companion animal population,” Frith said.
Individuals and businesses interested in supporting the clinic by participating in the Heavner-Frith match should contact Rachel Barry at firstname.lastname@example.org or cell number (732) 742-6332.
