SPCA a winner in Toyota's 100 Cars for Good

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

SPCA Cincinnati is one of 100 nonprofit winners in Toyota's 100 Cars for Good program. 

100 Cars for Good is a major philanthropic initiative in which the automaker gave 100 cars to 100 nonprofits over the course of 100 days.  SPCA Cincinnati was selected as a winner based on votes from the public on August 21, 2012 on the 100 Cars for Good Facebook page. 

The Sienna minivan will be used to transport animals and SPCA Cincinnati staff to schools throughout the year as part of the humane education program.  In addition, it will be used to bring animals to senior adults living in retirement homes where they are matched with pet companions during visits.

"We are thrilled so many kind people from all over the Tri-State and the country voted and helped us win the Sienna," said SPCA President and CEO Harold F. Dates. "This new van will replace a sixteen-year-old minivan that we have been using for our humane education program."
