Because of a community initiative between the First State Animal Center and SPCA and Dover Federal Credit Union, $2,644 was raised for the animals during the month of October.

Dover Federal’s seven satewide branch locations served as donation drop-off locations for the First State Animal Center and SPCA “Wish List” items. As well as collecting donation items, each of the branches accepted monetary donations for the shelter. Dover Federal team members “Jean Fridays” donations were matched dollar for dollar by the First State Favorite Credit Union.

On Oct. 20, an adoption event was held at Dover Federal’s Smyrna branch, which provided the ability to find a forever home for some fur babies, while also raising awareness for the shelter.
