INDEX – Just six weeks old, the $2 million “Shelter Us” fund drive passed the halfway mark in recent days, giving the Susquehanna SPCA confidence to buy land for its new headquarters.
The SPCA has closed the deal on two acres of land at 5088-5082 Route 28, CPA Judith Brown’s former office and the building next door.
“We’re finalizing everything withour construction management team. We are planning to break ground early in the spring,” said SPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes.
As for the money raised, “We had a goal of $1 million by the end of 2018,” said Haynes. “And we’ve raised more than that.”
