Haynes, Haddad Back From Beirut

13 Dogs Rescued,

In Foster Homes,

Resting At SSPCA

Just arrived from a Beirut rescue, Bethoven affectionately licks foster dad Ian Laschell’s face a few minutes ago, as he and wife Wendy prepare to take their new pet home to Oneonta from the Susquehanna SPCA shelter in Hartwick Seminary.  The Laschells had rescued seven dogs from Hurricane Katrina; the last died last year.   SSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes and Licensed Vet Tech Sara Haddad, in photo at right, and the 13 dogs they rescued were picked up by shelter volunteers in three vans at JFK Airport in New York City this evening, arriving back at the shelter shortly before 9:30.  As a half-dozen foster families waited, the dogs were checked, fed, walked and held in cages until they could be processed.  Haynes and Haddad’s final adventure, a collaboration with Animals Lebanon, came in Qatar en route home, when they were separated from the animals and confined briefly while authorities checked the canines’ papers.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

COOPERSTOWN – As many as 13 dogs will get a second chance as part of a sponsored goodwill mission to Beirut, Lebanon.

Stacie Haynes, Susquehanna SPCA executive director, and Sara Haddad, licensed veterinary technician, are embarking Thursday on the mission of mercy.

“We are honored to have been selected for this goodwill mission and are proud to share best practices we have learned and implemented here at the Susquehanna SPCA with an organization working toward the same goal on the other side of the world,” said Haynes.
