When planning for her 9th birthday party, Clare Howard told her mother “I have enough stuff.” So she asked her birthday guests to bring presents for the animals at Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA, instead of for her. Clare and her friends brought a carload of goodies for the dogs and cats at the shelter, including food, treats, toys, chewies, and even some dog clothes. They also brought much-needed supplies like blankets and towels. A specially-wrapped gift was delivered for Lottie, the Dog of the Day. The girls then visited the dogs and the cats. Clare especially liked Tyson and Dee-Dee. All three dogs are available for adoption and are waiting for their forever homes.
Everyone at the shelter thanks Clare and her friends for their generosity. Anyone who would like to have a party or organize a food drive, a bottle/can collection, or a wish-list drive can contact the shelter at 518-828-6044, ext. 102.
