Pet Adoption Fair

Hugs From Henry, Inc. will hold a Pet Adoption Fair to benefit local pets for medical needs and to find their forever home. The event will be held on Sun., May 5th, Benson’s Pet Center, 3083 NY-50, Saratoga Springs, NY from 10 am to 3 pm. Local shelters and vendors will be on hand.

If you are Spring cleaning and find unneeded pet supplies to include old towels, sheets or blankets, bring them and we will provide them to people adopting a pet or the shelters will take what they need. We will give you a donation receipt.


Spring Dog Obedience Sessions

Class is in session: Spring Introduction to Basic Dog Obedience

Sessions will take place Wednesday Evenings at the Schaghticoke Fairgrounds April 24th-June 5th

6:00 – 6:45 PM; Open to Rensselaer County Residents (Adults):

Designed for the new puppy, family pet, or for someone who wants to get more involved in the world of “dogs”. Dogs must be nonaggressive. This class will introduce basic obedience tasks including sit, down, attention, walking on a loose leash, recall and building drive. For those that have the basics down, we can continue working on same tasks, but introducing distractions and longevity.

7:00 – 7:45 PM Open to Rensselaer County Residents

(8-18 years old):

Designed for our children, who are able to keep control of their dogs on a leash. For those that may need some assistance with the dogs, we ask that an adult participate with them. This class will introduce or continue your work on sit, down, attention, walking on a loose leash, recall and building drive. I also will be including some tricks that everyone enjoys doing.

The cost for 4-H members and volunteers is $25 and $50 for non-members. Space is limited, so please call Kayela at 518-272-4210 to reserve your spot today!
