[Gloversville, NY] In a heartwarming display of community kindness, Fulton County Regional SPCA joined hands with The Family Counseling Center to celebrate Leap of Kindness Day, spreading joy and puppy kisses to Counseling Center staff.

On this special occasion, FCRSPCA brought two shelter dogs, Buddy and Reba, each with their own unique past and story of resilience, to spend a few hours at the Family Counseling Center. The aim was not only to offer a moment of joy and happiness to the hardworking staff, but to also emphasize the therapeutic benefit of animal companionship.

Accompanied by their dedicated handlers, Buddy and Reba arrived with wagging tails and eager hearts, ready to share their love and warmth with everyone they encountered. As part of the kindness celebration, FCRSPCA volunteers provided homemade baked goods and pet related gifts to the Center’s staff, expressing their gratitude for the staff’s tireless dedication to the well-being of the Fulton County community.

Over the course of a few hours, staff had the opportunity to take a break from their busy schedules and indulge in some much needed cuddle time with their adorable visitors. The presence of dogs created a much welcomed atmosphere of relaxation and joy, brightening the spirits of everyone present.

“This visit embodies the spirit of Leap of Kindness Day, reminding us all of the power of compassion and connection,” said Maria Simone-Martin, FCRSPCA’s Director of Marketing. “We are thrilled to give back to The Family Counseling Center as a thank you for all they do not only for us but for our entire community.”

“It was such a joy to see the smiles that the dogs brought to the staff” expressed Renee Earl, FCRSPCA’s Board President. “We are so grateful for the positive impact Family Counseling Center has on our community and we’re so happy to be able to return some of that positivity back to them.”

Leap of Kindness Day, celebrated on February 29th, encourages individuals and organizations to perform acts of kindness, no matter how big or small. This heartwarming visit serves as a shining example of the profound impact one simple act of kindness can have.
