NY Shelter Aniamls On Thanksgiving
December 2, 2020
About 80 dogs and over 150 cats at the Stevens Swan Humane Society in Utica, NY got a special Thanksgiving meal last week thanks to local couple Rob and Hillary Dunn.
Rob has worked at the no-kill shelter for the past nine years and Hillary has volunteered there for the past five. The shelter is how they met. Now, for the second year in a row, they have worked overtime to continue to give to the Stevens Swan community.
Each dog got a plate of plain white meat turkey without skin or bones, canned and no salt added green beans, and plain canned pumpkin.
“It’s actually great for them. A lot of them really liked it,” she said.
Hillary said the shelter has been closed to foot traffic for months because of the coronavirus pandemic. Those interested in adoption now have to fill out an application online and if it is approved, an outdoor meeting is set up at the shelter.
