SPCA Calendar Contest Winners Announced

The results are in for the Lycoming County SPCA’s 2018 Pet Pawtraits Calendar Contest! The top fundraisers are one-year-old beagle brothers, Pete and Repete. The boys raised $1,173 and are the beloved furbabies of Patty Thomas and Mirra and Jeremy Hauser of Linden. The top fundraisers, Pete and Repete, are featured with their own month and on the cover of the calendar. Thirteen total winners were chosen, based on dollars raised. Each winner is featured with their own month in the calendar, with a bonus month featuring the winning First Responder entry. Greg Welteroth Advertising designed and shot the photography for the top fundraisers as a donation to the locally run SPCA. A total of forty entries raised $3,640 from the votes and entries. The project also raises money from corporate sponsors, as well as donations from community service groups whose generosity are all recognized in the calendar. Funds raised go directly towards animal care at the shelter, which served 5,909 animals in 2016.
