Benefit Event for Recovering Puppy
November 21 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
The SPCA of Hancock County in Trenton is a life-saving shelter whose mission is to always go the extra mile for the animals in their care. Recently, a 10-month-old Lab mix puppy named Twitch unexpectedly underwent emergency weekend surgery to treat a rare life-threatening skin infection. Unfortunately, the ensuing $6,000 medical procedure wasn’t in the shelter’s vet care budget.
On Saturday, Nov. 21, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., 7-year-old “Famous” Seamus Colby of Bar Harbor and the “Heroes of the SPCA” are holding an ambitious fundraiser to help cover the $6,000 medical expenses for the recovering shelter rescue puppy. They will be holding a raffle and bake sale at the SPCA facility located at 141 Bar Harbor Road in Trenton, plus asking friends in the community to simply donate any dollar amount possible.
Young “Famous” Seamus Colby is no stranger to the SPCA. During this past summer, he held several bake sale fundraisers at his home in Bar Harbor to help defray costs of other SPCA shelter animals who had higher than average medical costs.
For more information, see the SPCA of Hancock County’s Facebook page, or “Famous Seamus Colby’s” Facebook page.
Additionally, a “GOFUNDME” page has been established by the SPCA at https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/heroes-to-the-spca-saving-twitch.
