SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Syracuse Chiefs and a local vet are helping strike out pet overpopulation. A check of $1,600 was presented to Spay and Neuter Syracuse at Alliance Bank Stadium.
Chiefs relief pitchers struck out 160 batters at home, and Dr. Sandra Fitzpatrick of Beaver Lake Animal Hospital pitched in $10 per strikeout. The money goes directly to the animals.
"Everything we take in we use to spay or neuter. For instance if someone comes in and cannot afford a spay or neuter, they will be subsidized by this donation. They will be welcomed, we don't turn anyone away," said Christina Berry, President of SANS.
This is the fifth year the Chiefs and Dr. Fitzpatrick have teamed up to help pets.
