Zynga’s YoVille Campaign has been selling bulldogs and tabby cats since Spring 2009. In May 2009, the campaign was proud to contribute over $90,000 to the SF/SPCA. These special pets are still available at Pete’s Pets in YoVille.
“The SF SPCA is honored to have the support of Zynga players, committed to supporting our mission. Your participation will benefit our animals!”
Through our virtual social goods program, YoVille players can adopt a dog or cat wearing an SF SPCA vest. Every virtual adoption results in a $2 donation to the SF SPCA non-profit, which protects and cares for dogs and cats in need. Since launching the initiative in the Spring of 2009, YoVille players have raised more than $90,000 for the cause.
"We are thrilled to partner with Zynga," said former SF SPCA President, Jan McHugh-Smith. "By reaching out to the virtual world, Zynga helps raise awareness about adopting shelter animals and, at the same time, supports the local community by selecting the San Francisco SPCA as the designated non-profit receiving this generous support."
