North Country SPCA Open House Saturday

The North Country SPCA will hold its fourth annual open house celebration this Saturday, August 20th from 10 am to 3 pm at the Frances Miller Adoption Center located at 7700 Route 9N in Elizabethtown.

The open house is free and will offer a variety of activities for the whole family, including face-painting, games, music and more. Local vendors from around the Adirondacks will be selling hand-crafted goods, there will be dog agility and training demonstrations, and dog microchipping for only $20 per dog. The day will also offer free adoptions of the SPCA’s many dogs and cats to approved applicants.

To cap off the festivities, the NCSPCA will hold its third annual $25,000 golf ball drop at 2 pm. The ten balls that land closest to the mark will be in the running to win $25,000. Great prizes will also be awarded to the ten balls closest to the mark, including a guaranteed $1,000 top prize. Golf balls are only $10 each and you do not need to be present to win. You can purchase golf balls the day of the event.

The North Country Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Essex County, is a no-kill shelter providing refuge to nearly 400 dogs and cats each year. It is the only animal shelter in rural Essex County, in the Adirondack Park.

The NCSPCA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies primarily on donations for support of the animals in our care. Donations to the NCSPCA are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
