Senator Valesky Holds Pet Supplies Drive to Benefit CNY SPCA and Wanderer’s Rest

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – State Senator David J. Valesky (D-Oneida) is holding a pet supplies drive at the State Office Building in Syracuse now through Friday, September 2 in partnership with the Central New York SPCA and Wanderer’s Rest animal shelters. Donations of pet food and other supplies are needed year-round to ensure that the animals receive proper medical care, nutrition, and enrichment while they wait to be adopted.

“Our local animal shelters not only provide food and shelter to pets waiting for new homes, these organizations offer educational programs, cruelty investigation services, spaying and neutering services, and pet food pantries, all of which need community support to continue,” Senator Valesky said. “I am pleased to partner with the CNY SPCA and Wanderer’s Rest to provide supplies that support their mission and programs.”

Area residents can drop off donations in the lobby of the State Office Building through the entrance at 333 E. Washington St in Syracuse. Wish list items include dry and canned dog, cat, puppy, kitten, and rabbit food; cat and dog treats; cat and dog toys; cat and dog beds; gently used blankets (twin or smaller) and towels; clay cat litter (non-clumping); small litter boxes; garbage bags, regular and heavy duty; Clorox bleach and wipes; office supplies; and other needed items. A full wish list is available on Sen. Valesky’s website at NY State Senator Valesky’s page.
