continued In the Schenectady area, where the Mohawk River rose over its banks and flooded homes in the city and Rotterdam Junction, the Scotia APF did not see a marked increase in abandoned animals outside of a few remarkable cases.
A kitten was picked up off the street in the midst of Tropical Storm Irene, and later, during the flooding, a blind Chihuahua was found in the Stockade. The former was reunited with its owner and a new home was located for the dog.
The Scotia Animal Protective Foundation is currently sheltering 121 animals looking for homes.
Local shelters are always looking for welcoming homes for animals.
