Celebrate Charitable Women attendee gives $1,000 to FSAC-SPCA
Throughout the year, the First State Animal Center & SPCA salutes special individuals who do wonderful things for the organization. Vicki Montague is one of those amazing people.
In April, Vicki attended the Celebrate Charitable Women event, a party in Wilmington that feted women who give back to their communities. Held at The Pointe at Brandywine Park, the event featured artwork by original artists, raffle prizes and two chances to win $1,000 for the charity of the winner's choice.
Vicki attended the event and won the $1000.00 to donate to the charity of her choice. She chose the FSAC to receive the $1000! Vicki had adopted her German Shepherd, Sadie, so she gave the money to help support the center's homeless animals.
"The FSAC is very pleased that Mrs. Montague chose us to be the benefactor of this gracious gift," said Kevin Usilton, executive director. "The animals are most appreciative of her generosity!"
The First State Animal Center and SPCA is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit multi-functional service organization serving all three counties in Delaware. Earlier in the fall of 2013, the Kent County SPCA was officially renamed the First State Animal Center and SPCA, in recognition of its statewide animal welfare focus and to help the public easily identify the full suite of services the organization provides Delaware's pets and the people who care for them. The mission of the First State Animal Center and SPCA is twofold: they protect animals from people, by prevention of cruelty and suffering, rescue of the trapped or injured, emergency medical treatment, temporary housing for homeless animals and the reduction of homeless pet overpopulation through targeted spay/neuter and education programs; and they protect people from animals through their commitment in placing only stable, safe and well-adjusted animals into homes where they will thrive while simultaneously educating the public about responsible pet guardianship.
