Johnson College to Hold Spay Day 2013

The Animal Care Center at Johnson College is currently accepting applications for Spay Day 2013, which will take place on Wednesday, February 27, 2013. This will be the ninth year that the College has celebrated Spay Day in order to help control pet overpopulation.

According to The Humane Society of the United States, “World Spay Day is an annual campaign of The HSUS and Humane Society International that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter—a proven way to save the lives of companion animals, feral cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.”

This one-day only clinic at Johnson College offers discounted spaying and neutering services for dogs and cats. Only residents of Lackawanna County with an income of less than $25,000 annually are invited to apply.

The deadline for filing applications is February 15, 2013 and will be strictly adhered to. Applications can be obtained at www.johnson.edu, by calling 570-702-8961, or by stopping by the Animal Care Center on Johnson College’s campus at 3427 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Incomplete applications or those submitted without verification of income will not be considered. Submitting an application does not guarantee that your animal will be accepted. Please no phone calls to check on the status of applications; Animal Care Center personnel will call eligible applicants to set up an appointment time. Also, day of walk-ins will not be accepted.

For more information on Spay Day 2013, please contact the Animal Care Center at Johnson College by calling 570-702-8961.

Johnson College Giving Tree Benefits Over 100 Local Children

One of the Johnson College Social Force Club’s most successful activities throughout the academic year is the Annual Giving Tree. This year, the College’s students, faculty, and staff made holiday gift wishes come true for over 100 local children in need. Thanks to the Giving Tree, the holidays are much brighter for children in three of Scranton’s Head Start Programs and for many of the children of the College’s very own students and alumni as well.

The College’s Social Force Club is a community service organization that also provides cultural and social activities for students. Visit www.johnson.edu to find out more about Johnson College and its community involvement.

Cars on Campus Sets Record

Over 165 classic cars and unique vehicles were on display for Johnson College’s Cars on Campus on September 9, 2012. The event, presented by Manasek Auto Parts, Inc., raised a record $7,825.87 for the Cars on Campus Scholarship Fund, far exceeding the $5,000 goal!

Hundreds of car lovers, students, alumni, and community friends visited campus to enjoy the sights of the remarkable automobiles, the sounds of DJ Conor McGuigan, and the tastes of some delicious refreshments.

Awards were given out in a number of categories. Big winners included Tom Millard’s 1955 Brockway, which won the 2012 Best in Show Award, and George Caswell’s Cadillac Limousine, which took home this year’s President’s Pick Award.

Rudi Dickinson ‘11, who was instrumental in reviving the College’s car show three years ago after a five year hiatus, shares, “It’s great to give back to the College which has given me the skills to pursue a successful life. My hope is that the Cars on Campus Scholarship gives others the same opportunities.”
