As you may remember, in lieu of mailing Christmas cards for the past two years, I decided to make a donation to a local charity. 2017’s charity winners were the SPCA of Wake County and The Jimmy V Foundation. That year was a tie so I decided to donate to them both.
Now it is time to announce the 2018 winner but before I do, I would like to thank all of you for sending me your favorite local charities. There were so many awesome causes that I was excited to learn more about. Now for the 2018 winner…
Marteen was especially excited to help me with donating to the SPCA of Wake County. Keep reading to learn a little more about this great organization.
About the SPCA of Wake County
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Wake County is dedicated to creating a more humane community where every adoptable animal has a home. Each year the SPCA rehomes over 3,500 animals through its innovative adoption programs.
The mission of the SPCA is to transform the lives of pets and people through protection, care, education, and adoption.
The SPCA of Wake County is a local, independent, non-profit organization that receives no government funding or tax dollars. We rely almost entirely on private donations to fund our annual operating budget of $3 million. The SPCA of Wake County is not affiliated with, nor do we receive funding from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
