COHOES, N.Y. -- A local restaurant held a fundraiser for the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society of Menands.
The Black Cat Ale House invited patrons to enjoy music, food, and animals on Saturday for a good cause. The humane society also held an adoption clinic outside of the restaurant. The group accepted dog and cat food donations, and supplies.
The event even featured an auction, a raffle, and a buffet for the price of a $10 donation.
"In Cohoes alone, there are quite a few animals on the street, malnourished. People rent here. They leave them behind and so many animals need to be adopted out," said Victoria Gallipolo, event organizer.
All of the proceeds from the second annual event benefit the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society of Menands.
