Partnership with the Sacramento SPCA
With the presentation of a $35,000 donation, Hank Fisher Properties became the largest single contributor to the local SPCAâ€™s Senior Services Program that enable elders to enjoy the health and wellness benefits of pet ownership.
â€śThrough our senior living communities,” Mrs. Fisher stated,Â ”Hank Fisher Properties has been working to enhance the lives of seniors for over 30 years. So, we are pleased to team with the SPCA to help older adults maintain relationships with their beloved animal companions. Pet ownership can be especially beneficial to seniors and we are happy to support services that allow them to do just that.â€ť
The funds were raised through an 18-hole golf scramble held at Del Paso Country Club. The event also featured live and silent auctions, hole-in-one contests and a helicopter golf ball drop. With the tournamentâ€™s success, HFP hopes to make it an annual event â€“ the next offering is planned for Spring 2011.
HFPâ€™s support of the Seniors Services Program allows the SPCA to provide low-cost pet care workshops, discounts on pet adoptions, obedience training, animal behavior consultation and helpline, â€śLove on Loanâ€ť pet visits to senior residences, and other services
