We wanted to make it as easy as possible for folks in Utica and New Hartford to help each other out, so we’ve collected a near-comprehensive list of donation and volunteering opportunities in the area. We hope that you can use it to help out your neighbors year-round.

If you know of a donation or volunteering opportunity that we should add to the list, or you’d like to submit more information about an opportunity already listed, email us at info@neighborhoodfamilydentist.com.

Spring Farm CARES

3364 State Route 12
Clinton, NY 13323

(315) 737-9339

Spring Farm CARES is an “animal and Nature Sanctuary located in the scenic Mohawk Valley of Central New York… home to an average of 250-300 animals including horses, donkeys, goats, dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and poultry.”

Dawn Hayman from Spring Farm CARES was kind enough to provide us with this summary:

Spring Farm CARES is home to 250-275 animals, most with special needs.  All of the large animals are permanent residents and not adopted out. Most are extremely elderly and/or have special needs and highly specialized care made especially for them.

We have about 130-140 cats – the majority (95%) who are elderly or special needs. Some of them could be adopted into homes if people were willing and able to meet their special needs. But most will stay with us for life. The cats live in communal rooms, not in cages. We are their home for life so quality of life and enrichment of their lives is our primary focus.

Volunteers primarily spend time with the cats. This is a crucial role in our organization as our staff doesn’t often have the time to devote one on one to each animal. Playing, snuggling, and even sitting and reading to the cats is something the cats look forward to receiving from our volunteers. Volunteers provide a lot of enrichment in their lives.

We do not have volunteers work with our large animals in the barn. This is due to liability issues as well as the unique issues the larger animals have that do not make them conducive to volunteers.

Volunteers can come 7 days a week from 10am-5pm. We do need to do an orientation tour to start with and it is best to make an appointment in advance for that. People can call our office, M-F, 8am-3pm at (315) 737-9339.”

Our home is based on the model of a family caring for their loved one at home and that can be felt as soon as you walk through the doors of our beautiful Victorian home.
