The Lycoming County SPCA is pleased to introduce their new Director of Development, Melinda Lyon. “Mindee” has over 20 years of sales, marketing, public relations and event planning experience primarily in the education and non-profit arena; most recently coordinating the public relations and marketing for a state-wide non-profit, foster care and adoption agency for at risk children. Prior to that, she helped to introduce the PBS and NRP stations, WVIA and WVYA to Lycoming and the surrounding counties as the region’s Corporate Development Representative. When she moved to the area from Boston in 1998, she worked in various marketing and advertising roles for public and school library vendor, Brodart Company. She has a Master’s Degree in Education and an undergraduate degree in Therapeutic Recreation. A life-long animal advocate, Lyon was drawn to the Development Director opportunity with the Lycoming County SPCA and is excited to share her compassion for animals with likeminded individuals and businesses in the area. Her primary role will be to garner financial support to further the mission of the SPCA as they protect domestic animals by providing shelter, emergency treatment, investigation and prosecution of cruelty or abuse complaints; adoption and counseling. Lyon has fostered and adopted rescue animals of all types over the years. Currently, she and her two sons share their home with a five year old German Shepherd Dog they initially fostered and later adopted, along with six fish, a turtle, and their occasional visiting snake Cuddles.
Our mission is to protect all domestic animals by: providing shelter, emergency treatment, investigation and prosecution of cruelty or abuse complaints; adoption and counseling; education programs; and humane care through Lycoming County.
