Opening reception kicks off joint SQSPCA/OPS exhibit

COOPERSTOWN, NY – Fenimore Art Museum will host an opening reception on Thursday, December 5 for a showing of photographs taken at the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SQSPCA) by SUNY Oneonta photography society members.

The exhibit, titled “Second Chances: Susquehanna SPCA,” will feature both color and black and white portraits of shelter dogs and cats shot recently by SUNY Oneonta students Zea Beckwith and Molly Feulner, members of the college’s Oneonta Photo Society (OPS).

“Second Chances: Susquehanna SPCA” is part of Fenimore Art Museum’s ongoing Community Exhibition series.

“We are delighted to be included by the museum again this year, and excited to be working with OPS,” said SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes. “This show will provide wonderful exposure for the shelter’s adoptable animals and overall mission, while showcasing the skills of these talented local photographers,” she added.

The opening reception will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. on December 5 in the museum’s Community Gallery and is free and open to the public. Fenimore Art Museum is located at 5798 NY-80, Cooperstown.

“Second Chances: Susquehanna SPCA” will be on view December 6-31. Admission is $12 for adults and juniors (13-64) and $10.50 for seniors (65+). Children 12 and under, New York State Historical Association members, active military, and retired career military personnel are admitted free of charge. For more information, call Fenimore Art Museum at (607) 547-1400 or visit https://www.fenimoreartmuseum.org/

The goal of the Oneonta Photo Society is to educate, inspire and create opportunities for photographers of all levels on the SUNY Oneonta campus. The Photo Society is intended to enhance students’ knowledge of photography, teach technical tools to broaden their skill sets, take students on trips to galleries and museums, and provide career networking opportunities for students both on and off campus.

In operation since 1917, the Susquehanna SPCA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to caring for homeless, surrendered, and seized companion animals and finding them loving, forever homes. For more information or to donate, visit www.sqspca.org 

SQSPCA exceeds foundation grant challenge

The Susquehanna SPCA has met its match. And then some.

On September 16, the C.J. Heilig Foundation announced a dollar-for-dollar matching challenge grant of $100,000 to assist the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SQSPCA) in its SHELTER US capital campaign.

By the November 1 deadline, donations and pledges generated by the Heilig match had topped $129,000, exceeding the goal and – with the match – bringing the SQSPCA $229,000 closer to its campaign target.

“We are incredibly grateful for all of the business and community support we have received thus far,” said SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes. “The campaign continues to gain momentum, and support for the new shelter continues to grow.”

The SHELTER US project – kick started by a $500,000 New York State Companion Animal Capital Fund Grant through the Department of Agriculture and Markets – will move the shelter and thrift store facilities 1.2 miles north of the current location on State Route 28 between Cooperstown and Oneonta. Workers broke ground in August, with a target date of summer 2020 for the move.

The new facilities will improve the daily lives of sheltered dogs and cats by better conforming to guidelines established by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians. Upgraded features will include two entrances separating incoming animals from visitors and animals leaving for their new homes, a sterile surgery suite with safe recovery area, a fresh air ventilation system to benefit visitors as well as animals under shelter care, and more convenient parking.
