So three weeks ago, they began an Emergency Cans for Canines Bottle Drive. It was supposed to be a one-week event but the response was so great they decided to keep it going.

The numbers are in and WOW have you responded in a great way. In just 21 days, you and the Neighborhood Redemption Center helped them raise $6,231.06 from your can and bottle donations.

The funds will help to make up for the money lost that they usually get from Grooming, Spay & Neuter, and other events. Here's more good news: They accept bottles and cans ALL YEAR ROUND.

You can stop by at 167 Conklin Avenue (near Crowleys) in Binghamton. I've adopted several cats from them including the two current residents Shane and Capricorn. See how you can adopt a cat or dog for yourself here.

You can call them at  (607) 724-3709 to arrange a drop-off and to have any of your questions answered. Finally, you can help them at their lastest BC Humane Fundraiser, they are having a drive-thru chicken BBQ this Friday, May 15th beginning at 3 p.m., go here to find out more
