UNION, N.Y. -- People in Broome County got together to help some four-legged friends this weekend. Area rescue organizations joined forces for a Dog Adopt-a-thon at Canine Commons Dog Park in the town of Union on Saturday.
They said they have at least 15-20 dogs up for adoption, with breeds from greyhounds to pit bulls. According to organizers, the event can help animals who have had rough lives.
"Most of these dogs in the shelters were thrown away, abused, neglected, mistreated, and all these dogs have one thing in common: they want to be loved," said Donelle Hartman, Lost Pawz Animal Rescue. "They want a new home, they want to be loved. If you adopt one of our dogs, I can tell you they're going to have unconditional love for the rest of their lives, they'll be grateful to you."
