    ANIMAL CONNECTION: An unprecedented year in animal welfare | Features

    A little over a year ago in March 2020, the threat of the global pandemic began to loom closer and closer to the areas we serve at the SPCA Albrecht Center.

You could tell they were skinny and starved,” Parnell explained.    Her neighbor, 48-year-old Michael Hamilton, who rents from her family was nowhere to be found.

However, it wasn’t until 1954 and through the efforts of Florence Foshag and others that the Monroe County Humane Society (now known as the Humane Society of Monroe County) was incorporated.
