SPCA: ferrets & a fundraiser

SPCA: ferrets & a fundraiser

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Jefferson County SPCA executive director Heather Spezzano brought three special guests with her when she visited the 7 News studio Monday morning.

Two of them are ferrets that are up for adoption and the other is Jacob Ashley, who has raised $300 so far for the SPCA's Million Penny Project fundraiser.

The ferrets are Nibbler and Binks, who came to the shelter over the weekend. They're a bonded pair whose owner recently passed away, so shelter folks would like to keep them together.

Jacob is a student at Indian River, where they're trying to raise a million pennies to donate to the SPCA.

The goal is $10,000 and the total currently stands at $6,250. You can donate at the SPCA’s two locations, at the high school, or at Northern Credit Union branches (note: the graphic in the video refers to the credit union as Northern Federal, a name it no longer goes by).

For more information on adopting an animal, volunteering, becoming a member, or donating, call the shelter at 315-782-3260.
