For the second year in a row, the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA is hosting a raffle for a seven-day getaway to Costa Rica, including airfare, lodging, and dog boarding.


The Big Tropical Getaway at the Enchanted Villa in Playa Langosta, Costa Rica was donated by Russ Gibson and Duncan Calhoun. Airfare will be donated by Richmor Aviation, and dog boarding will be donated by the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA.


Raffle tickets are $50 each, and only 300 will be sold!


All proceeds will benefit the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA and the three thousand-plus animals we serve each year. Some restrictions do apply.


The winning ticket will be drawn at the Humane Society on January 29, 2016. The winner need not be present to win. For more information or to buy tickets, please visit the shelter’s website at, or call Ron at (518) 828-6044 ext. 108.
