• SPCA Starts Facebook Fund-Raiser

    Beth Brookhouser, SPCA Monterey County Vice President of Marketing and Communications, advises that the non-profit started a fundraiser on Facebook, where donors give $15 to the animals, then share a photo of their pet. In return, SPCA staff and volunteer artists turn the donor’s pet into a work of art. To date, more than $3,500 has been raised to help animals rescued by the local, independent SPCA.

    This lighthearted fundraiser offered a fun respite from the tough current news and shelter in place. 

    One artist said “You helped me fulfill the message on my button today!” Her button read: Make Art, Make a Difference. Another artist said “thank you so much for inviting me to take part in this fundraiser. I am having enormous fun and even learning a little bit about my artistic skills.”

    The Facebook fundraiser will be open through the weekend of April 5 and in to next week.
