Where can I purchase a 2018 calendar?
2018 calendars are available at the SPCA, the SPCA Store at the Lycoming Mall (open the 3rd weekend of each month for special Offsite Adoption Weekends), or at participating veterinary offices and stores including Fresh Life, Gustonian Gifts, and Avu Goldsmiths. All donations from calendar purchases go directly towards the shelter’s mission to protect all domestic animals across Lycoming County by providing shelter, emergency treatment, investigation and prosecution of cruelty or abuse complaints, foster care, adoption, and counseling.
