September 30, 2013 – Monticello, N.Y. – Combined Energy Services (CES), a regional energy supplier, has donated a cargo van to the Sullivan County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to further supplement its lengthy efforts to keep the organization’s tenants – pooches and felines – safe and healthy.
CES, which currently provides propane gas at the Rock Hill-based facility, presented the SPCA with cargo van previously used for heating system repairs and deliveries. The van will now be used to aid veterinary efforts, as well as rescue efforts in collaboration with the North Shore Animal League.
Mike Taylor, co-owner of Combined Energy Services, said, “The SPCA plays a great role in keeping homeless animals here in Sullivan County safe year round. As a local business, it is our obligation to assist area nonprofit organizations and we’re proud to help the SPCA achieve its goals and carry out its mission.”
Dana Heimbach, president, Sullivan County SPCA, said, “CES’ generosity has not only been instrumental in the safety and comfort of the animals, but has kept our building free of hazards that could have doomed us in the future. These animals deserve the best we could offer and CES has helped make that possible.”
In addition to the donation, CES currently provides $2,000 propane gas credit to provide some relief during the coldest months of the year, bleach for laundry usage. Throughout the winter months, the SPCA struggles to heat its kennel at 104 Rock Hill Drive due to lack of proper insulation in the aging cinderblock building – the reason why CES has also provided the SPCA with a winter preparedness plan that outlines suggested building improvements for the future. The company also provides funding through its yearly Fill up for Furries campaign each spring.
