Henniker, NH, March 20, 2012 – Pats Peak became Pets Peak, Monday through Wednesday, March 12-14, 2012 as part of their March Online Only Specials. Skiers and riders were able to purchase a lift ticket online in advance to ski/ride at Pats Peak for only $30. Skiers were encouraged to bring pet items and get a $10 Pats Peak Cafe Card. For every online ticket sold, $15 of their $30 lift ticket went toward a donation to the Concord-Merrimack County SPCA or Canine Guardians for Life. Many skiers/riders brought lots of great donations including food, toys and treats for dogs and cats. A total of $1,725 was donated from the lift ticket sales.
Kris Blomback, General Manager of Pats Peak said, “We love animals so it’s our pleasure for Pats Peak to become Pets Peak to help out these needy animals. We thank our guests who made the extra effort to bring supplies for the animals for this fundraiser.”
“The Concord-Merrimack County SPCA appreciates having Pats Peak become Pets Peak, March 12-14. It was a wonderful opportunity for supporters and skiers alike to show how they can make a difference in the life of an abandoned animal within our community by just enjoying a day on the slopes. On behalf of the homeless animals of the Merrimack County~thank you for hosting this fundraiser!”, said Shannon Camara, Manager of Communications of the Concord-Merrimack County SPCA.
“We are very appreciative that Pats Peak includes us in this promotion. Since we are a very small rescue, every single dollar donated is significant. Every penny donated goes directly towards vetting, kenneling, and transport expenses in order for us to rescue and place at least 100 wonderful at-risk dogs each year”, said Judith Apy, President of Canine Guardians for Life.
About the Concord-Merrimack County SPCA:
The Concord-Merrimack County SPCA was founded in 1910 to relieve suffering and prevent cruelty to animals and to educate society on the importance of being just and compassionate to all living things. Today there is a 2,000 square foot shelter with additional administrative space in a separate building on the property. The shelter is truly a shelter, with all that word implies in providing safety from the world around us. It is a warm and caring facility for animals in transition, where staff find a loving home for all adoptable animals, no matter how long it may take. The mission is interpreted to require not only on-site care of animals but an active involvement in the community that supports us by serving as a resource to all pet guardians and as an educational voice for youth. Programs and services reflect their involvement, their commitment, and their vision. Concord-Merrimack County SPCA, 130 Washington Street, Penacook, NH 03303. (603) 753-6751 www.concordspca.org
