It's been almost one year since the Broome County Humane Society moved to a larger facility. The manager says they have certainly been busy.

Workers care for more than 200 animals at the Conklin Avenue building.

The shelter also offers boarding, grooming and clinic services.

And they are starting to work with other shelters to address animal problems in the area. 

Although some days are long, the manager says it's rewarding and educational for the public. 

"Some people may think we take care of homeless animals and make sure they get good homes, but it's much more than that," said Amberly Ondria, the Broome County Humane Society manager. "It's changing the community to better the animal welfare for all animals, whether it's the feral cats, stray dogs."

The shelter is hosting "Paws and Panels" on Monday, April 30th at 3 PM.

For every utility bill brought to the event, ETM Solar Works will donate $20 to the shelter and the bill holder will get a $5 cat or dog nail trim.
