Campaign 101

In recognition of the College’s 101st commencement, Alfred State and the SPCA serving Allegany County and the Hornell Humane Society have joined forces throughout the spring to encourage 101 animal adoptions by the college’s commencement on Sunday, May 13. By the end of April, we met our adoption goal.

“As I contemplated Commencement 2012, the College’s 101st, I couldn’t get Disney’s 101 Dalmatians out of my mind,” Anderson said recently. “When I realized that, in essence, it was a story about animal cruelty, I asked myself what we, as a college, could do to mitigate animal mistreatment in our area. Enlisting the help of our veterinary technology faculty as well as the local shelters, we decided upon ‘Campaign 101,’ an effort to encourage the adoption of 101 pets from the two shelters by May 13. One aspect of this plan is the continuation of our students’ and faculty’s work in providing medical care for the shelter animals, including spaying and neutering, which, ultimately, makes the animals more adoptable. The second aspect is encouraging faculty and staff as well as the local communities to consider adopting a pet in the next few months!”
