Throughout the month of April, The Arc of Schuyler coordinated an agency wide pet supply drive to benefit the Humane Society of Schuyler County in support of the NYSARC Gives Back Project 2015.
The Arc collected pet food and treats, blankets, pet toys, collars, dog clothing, and other supplies. Members of the community also generously contributed to the collection. Mike (left) and Connor (right) (pictured with support staff Janet Osborn) are animal lovers who were eager to represent The Arc by delivering the donations to the Humane Society.
Mike and Connor took a tour of the new Humane Society bulding with Director, Georgie Taylor and met a number of pets available for adoption.
People receiving supports through The Arc volunteer at local non profit organizations such as Office for the Aging, local food pantries and community gardens, Watkins Glen Library, Seneca View Skilled Nursing, and others througout the year.
