Suffolk County SPCA Needs Your Help To Save Pony

SMITHTOWN, NY (CBSNewYork) — The Suffolk County SPCA is asking for help to raise money for a Palomino pony that was rescued from a farm this spring.

The 12-year-old pony needs surgery to remove one of its eyes because of a bad medical condition. It has been getting medical treatment since being rescued from a farm in Calverton, but now the SPCA needs your help to afford the much-needed surgery. 

The procedure and subsequent medication costs $5,000. Chief of the Suffolk County SPCA Roy Gross says they have a veterinarian who will perform the surgery.

In a statement, Gross asks that you “look into your hearts, dig deep into your pockets” to help save the beautiful pony. Without treatment, the SPCA says the pony is in a great deal of pain.

If you’d like to help, you can send donations to: 

Suffolk County SPCA
363 Rt. 111
Smithtown, New York

    The SCSPCA has 923,813. in cash, savings, and investments according to there 2009 Tax return. The SCSPCA does not own anything other then a MASH unit. They rent a shoe box office in Smithtown NY. They beg, plead, and get suckers to take and care for all the animals they seize. How can they ask for more money to do nothing with. With almost 1 million dollars in the bank, how can they not own a facility to care for their animals? What are there intentions with this money? They do not need it for the operation. They clearly have enough to do 180 eye surgeries. since 2005 The SCSPCA has recieved over 600,000 in grants, contributions, and membership dues. What do they do with that money?
