The coronavirus is kicking the crap out of 2020 and it's affecting all aspects of our lives, including businesses and non-profits. The Broome County Humane Society  (BCHS) is just one of many organizations in Broome County that has struggled since the pandemic began.

The Broome County Humane Society gets NO GOVERNMENT FUNDING and they depend on our donations along with adoptions and fundraisers. When Binghamton was put into New York State's Yellow Zone, they had to make some adjustments.

They temporarily closed their walk-in traffic and went to appointments only for the animal adopters and visitors. When Broome County issued a Stay at Home Order, the BCHS made the difficult decision to cancel their Fall Bowl-a-Rama for Saturday, October 17th, and the Trunk or Treat on Saturday, October 24th.

They still remain true to their mission of helping to serve abandoned, abused, and homeless pets. Donations are welcome and appreciated but they also want you to know the following:

"Helpful donations allow us to keep supporting our animals, but unhelpful donations can actually burden our staff. When you donate, please make sure you're giving us something we can really use."

They love receiving donations but if you're not sure what the Broome County Humane Society can use, then go here to see their "Supplies Wish List." They want to remind you that any donation, no matter how small can make a big difference for our four-legged friends.

BCHS is located at 167 Conklin Avenue in Binghamton.
