March for the Animals 2012
2012 March for the Animals
The March for the Animals is the SPCA of Tompkins County's single biggest annual fundraiser. With as many as 3,000 pets needing shelter and care every year, and thousands more in our community who need our help, our goal is to raise $100,000 for the medical care of shelter animals. The March is not an endurance event, it is a walk with your friends and neighbors and well-behaved leashed dogs (or other pets!) showing solidarity and support of our open-admission, No-Kill mission. Register today!
