BCHS Shop for Benny & Betty a Success

Available cats and dogs from the Bradford County Humane Society were on hand recently at the Kmart in Wysox. The first annual, "Shop for Benny & Betty" took place on Saturday, April 13th from 10-2. Patrons purchased dog food, cat food, cat litter, toys, leashes, bleach and other supplies to support the Bradford County Humane Society. Over 500 pounds of supplies and food and over $250 in monetary donations were also taken for the shelter. BCHS volunteers assisted with the animals and by selling T-shirts and other items for animal lovers.

Megan Snell, Community Outreach Coordinator for BCHS says, "The kindness and generosity for our shelter animals that I see exhibited by the public at these events, never ceases to amaze me. It is extremely rewarding. "

Perhaps the best part, is Benny, a black and white cat was adopted that day. "Benny was a staff favorite. If you sat on the floor in the cat room, he would come right over and want to sit on your lap. I am so glad he found a good home," stated BCHS Executive Director Jennifer L. Spencer.

Betty, an American Staffordshire Terrier Mix is still waiting for her forever home. She is a sweet, playful, high energy dog. She could use leash training and would love a home where she would get lots of exercise. Betty is spayed, up to date on all of her shots and is microchipped.
