No Place Like Home

Petey and Trixie were adopted through the Staffworks Fund Homeward Bound Program at the Stevens-Swan Humane Society.

Thousands of companion animals occupy shelters across our region, often waiting months, if not years, before being adopted.

The Staffworks Fund is providing grants through its Homeward Bound Program to help animals move more quickly into their new homes.

The grants, awarded to animal welfare organizations in CNY, help subsidize pet adoptions via waived or reduced adoption events.

In late May, the Stevens-Swan Humane Society in Utica gave the Homeward Bound Program its first trial run. In total, 61 dogs and 69 cats were adopted in six weeks!
