BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – It’s never a dull moment when it comes to the Broome County Humane Society. On Friday, a regular dog transport turned into a day filled with much hairier faces than expected.
County Humanitarian Society director Amberly Ondria says it was a bit of a surprise to her and her team.
“We had planned for 12 dogs to come in and as these dogs were getting off the bus to get here, we got a call for a case that needed our help which ended up being 30 dogs.”
Ondria says she was confident her team could handle the 51 animals that now inhabit the shelter.
“We did our best and the staff were awesome and they stepped in and helped, whether it was packing up, setting up cages, helping moms place their babies, they really did. what they do best. ”
The Ondria tells us that this time of year usually brings more animals.
“We are definitely in the busy season. We are, you know, at the start of kitten season which usually starts in April or May. All our foster homes, they have kittens with them and we will be occupied until September, October depending on the season.
