Please join the Scranton Area Community Foundation for a Roundtable Discussion on Animal Welfare on Tuesday, June 11th, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Radisson Scranton (700 Lackawanna Ave, Scranton).

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is looking to gain a comprehensive picture of the challenges, barriers, and opportunities related to the welfare of animals across the Northeastern Pennsylvania region (NEPA).  We are welcoming all organizations and individuals that are working in issues regarding animal welfare in NEPA. This can include:

  • Humane Educators
  • Animal Shelters
  • Animal Rescue Organizations
  • Individual Animal Rescuers
  • Veterinary Service Providers
  • Organizations/Individuals involved in trap neuter release or spay neuter initiatives   
  • Animal Advocates
  • And other important regional issues

In addition, we invite other grantmakers and philanthropists who are interested in collaborating and learning more about how to make an impact on these issues to join us for this regional roundtable.

Information shared during this roundtable will be used to help identify opportunities for community impact, inform Foundation grantmaking, and to provide insight to other foundations, donors, and philanthropic partners.  We welcome organizations and individuals from multiple counties across the NEPA region including but not limited to Lackawanna, Luzerne, Susquehanna, Bradford, Sullivan, and Wyoming.

Anyone interested in participating in this roundtable discussion should contact Dana Hunter at the Scranton Area Community Foundation at dhunter@safdn.org or 570-347-6203 by Friday, June 7th. 


This is the second in a series of community roundtables that the Scranton Area Community Foundation will be hosting in 2019 to provide additional insight regarding topics that were under-represented during the community forums held in June 2018.
