In and around Essex
The North Country SPCA serves all of Essex County.
In 2014, the Essex Community Fund awarded $7,250 to 12 organizations, including a grant to the North Country SPCA to support its Safe Haven Program, which works with mental health, domestic violence, and adult protective agencies to provide safe, temporary shelter to pets whose owners are in crisis.
“The Essex Community Fund’s generous grant for our Safe Haven Program will go directly toward the cost of providing temporary and potentially life-saving shelter for the companion animals of family violence victims and other adults in crisis,” says Jessica Hartley, executive director of North Country SPCA. “We are incredibly grateful for the support of the Essex Community Fund.”
