Susquehanna Animal Shelter

Puppy Love!

Puppy Love!

So many puppies to choose from! Azalea Lorber, Davenport Center, wanted to take them all home, but her parents Ashley and John were more discerning in their choices. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

HARTWICK SEMINARY – A line of families gathered outside the Susquehanna Animal Shelter this afternoon to foster the 33 puppies brought up from Saving Grace, an animal rescue organization based out of North Carolina, which seeks to relocate dogs from high-intake kill shelters across the south.

The Susquehanna Animal Shelter will de-worm, spay/neuter and vaccinate the puppies before putting them up for an adoption during an event on Saturday, Aug. 4 at Petco on Southside in Oneonta. Dog Wild also took several adult dogs from the organization, and will host an adoption event 6-9 p.m. Friday, July 20 at Brewery Ommegang.

Kittens Left At Fox Hospital Making Full Recovery

Kittens Left At Fox Hospital

Making Full Recovery

The Susquehanna Animal Shelter received an unexpected gift yesterday when 19 kittens, ranging in age from three weeks old to three days old, were found in a bathroom in A.O. Fox Hospital in Oneonta. According to Susquehanna Animal Shelter Executive Director Stacie Haynes, the kittens were found in a plastic bag in a hospital bathroom. Susquehanna Animal Shelter employee Becca Daly has taken over the task of caring for the five youngest kittens, who are believed to be only a few days old. Out of the 19 kittens found at the hospital, 14 have been placed in foster homes to be cared for, while the five youngest, who have yet to even open their eyes, are staying at the shelter to be looked after. A three year old cat at the shelter, Filamena, has thankfully begun nursing the kittens, which is a positive step in the right direction. Daly explained that the kittens would remain in the shelter for at least another eight weeks before they would be available for adoption. (Parker Fish/AllOTSEGO.com)

On The Mend, Rescued Puppies At Cider Run

FUNDRAISER PERHAPS BIGGEST EVER

On The Mend, Rescued

Puppies At Cider Run

At this morning’s annual Cider Run in Fly Creek, Oneonta’s Becca Daly, a Susquehanna Animal Shelter staffer, tickles Penelope, one of the nine dogs among the 101 animals rescued from a Garrattsville farm last weekend.  Also on hand at the SAS fundraiser was Lucy, another of the Collie mix canines being housed at the shelter until charges of torture and injury to animals against the farm’s owners are resolved.  At right, three Oneontans, Tom Slicer, Wayne Allen II and Brandon Gardner lead off the 10K event, which is hosted by the Fly Creek Cider Mill.  SAS Director Stacie Haynes said the crowd could have been a record — both the parking lots on Route 26 and across from the cider mill were filled — but the full count wasn’t in yet.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
