Paying-it-Forward to Homeless Animals
SeaComm continues to demonstrate community support through its Pay-It-Forward program, which was created in 2017 as a year-long focus of giving back. Recently, the credit union sponsored all adoption costs at four local animal shelters during Pet Appreciation Week, from June 3 to June 8.
“Our support of local animal shelters through our Pay-it-Forward program is a substantial way for us to continue to show our commitment to the North Country,” states SeaComm President and CEO, Scott A. Wilson. “Our local animal shelters have been a valuable resource to our communities, and we are proud to support their mission.”
Through SeaComm’s patronage, 21 dogs and 21 cats at the Massena Humane Society, Potsdam Humane Society, Tri-Lakes Humane Society, and the Elmore SPCA, found their forever homes. In addition to sponsoring the adoption costs, SeaComm also donated a supply of pet bandanas to accompany each adopted pet as they left the shelter for their new homes. Rebecca Burdo, Shelter Manager at Elmore SPCA, Inc. shared her appreciation for SeaComm’s support by saying, “The community was so impressed and thankful for this gift that you have bestowed upon them…we really can’t thank you enough!”
