VIEW TIMES UNION AD
The Mental Health Foundation, in partnership with Mohawk Hudson River Humane Society and The Animal Protective Foundation, is pleased to present, once again, the largest event about pets and for pets and their owners in the greater Capital Region of upstate New York.
As partners, we are planning to present a number of informative and educational seminars, all free to the public, to be held in conjunction with the exhibits on the Concourse.
Last year’s Paws for a Cause at the Plaza enabled the Foundation to provide grant support to the Albany-based ClearView Center to kick off its It’s Okay To Talk About It grant program. The program is aimed at providing college-age students with resources and supports to be able to manage mental health issues together with their family and friends. For more information on The ClearView Center’s InSights program, click here.
We are encouraging attendees to bring an item of new, unopened, canned or dry pet food to the event. At the conclusion of the event we will divide the food up and distribute it to the rescue groups who are participating Paws for a Cause at the Plaza.
Don’t miss this fun and educational event!
