In 1955 Ella Merle and her daughter Dede Kline rose to an auspicious challenge of helping animals who had fallen through the cracks of society in Columbia County. Through their dedication and exhaustive efforts, one small building with five dog kennels has today become a multi-faceted 501(c)3 animal welfare organization holding up to sixty dogs and one hundred cats.
Over the last six decades CGHS/SPCA has expanded its services in the community to include
- low-cost veterinary services (serving more than two thousand animals each year)
- food bank (providing 25,000 pounds. of free food annually to families in need)
- stray dog housing, assisting law enforcement with cruelty cases
- community outreach
- humane education
