We have a great resource in our community, the Stevens-Swan Humane Society (SSHS), helping our pets and animal friends who are often without support. Did you know that, in addition to their most visible service of providing animal control and adoptions, they also provide pet cremation and pet burial services, rabies clinics, spay and neuter clinics, and community education?
We are supporting them in a number of ways, and we need your help! Please join us in one or more of these fun and rewarding activities to support the wonderful people and animals at Stevens-Swan.
Paws for a Cause
We’re offering $1 Paws for a Cause at all our branches. For a dollar, we put your personalized paper paw up on our wall, so you can inspire others with your support.
Keep the Change
Our tellers will be asking you if you would like to donate the change (balance less than a dollar) off your checks and other transactions to the Stevens-Swan Humane Society. If you do, our Member Service Representative will make a deposit to the SSHS account!
In addition to financial donations, Stevens-Swan accepts a number of supplies they need on a regular basis. We have donation boxes available at all our branches for you to donate supplies, including canned cat and dog foods, toys, treats, and more. See their wish list here.
Annual Mum Sale
We’ll hold our annual mum sale September 14th, 15th, and 16th at our New Hartford branch during our normal hours of operation (Thursday and Friday from 9am-5pm, and Saturday from 8am-12noon). Choose your favorites:
- Small- $4 each or 3 for $10
- Large- $7 each or 3 for $20
- Extra-large in decorative black plastic pot - $18
- Hanging baskets - $10
Stop by to purchase yours for your home, or as gifts. You’ll be spreading joy at home, to friends or loved ones, and to our animal friends as well!
Wiggle Waggle Walkathon
Join us at this year’s 25th Annual Wiggle Waggle Walkathon on Sunday, September 17th from 12-3pm at Kirkland Town Park on Post St. in Clinton. We will field a team of First Source employees, family members, and friends along with our furry friends. We’ll be entering the costume contest with a theme this year inspired by our Healthy Pet Loans: our pets will be dressed as doctors, nurses, and patients! Join us with your family dog (or walk an adoptable dog from Stevens-Swan!) for food, music, raffles, vendors, and contests.
Thanks for your generosity. It’s all for a great cause!
