SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Central New York SPCA wants to address overcrowding before the snow starts falling.
SPCA officials said the kennels are nearly full with almost 80 dogs, and more than 200 cats. They also just received four new litters of rabbits. In addition to finding homes for these animals, the SPCA is also accepting donations to help pay for renovations.
The small dog kennel was recently renovated, but the large kennel is still in need of an upgrade.
"It's very important to realize that that kennel has been in existence since the 1950s. So it's past time really, to be able to update it and renovated it to 2000 standards, 2013 or 2014 standards," said Nancy Graham, SPCA Volunteer Coordinator.
The Central New York SPCA is also hosting its 8th annual "Kizzy Awards" Friday at Justin's Grille. They will be honoring someone who has gone above and beyond for animals over the past year.
