The Broome County Dog Shelter is putting best paw forward to raise money to help care for stray and unwanted dogs in the community.

The new “Paws for Possibilities” campaign not only serves as a way to raise money and add some art to the shelter near the SUNY Broome Community College campus but can also serve as possible memorial opportunities for people and their pets.

The shelter is selling weather proof aluminum paw prints with inscriptions that will be placed on the fencing at the shelter.  The pawprints can include dogs’ names, memorials or family names of shelter supporters to be permanently displayed.  The 125-dollar paw prints measure eight inches by eight inches with the option of up to three lines of text.

Anyone interested in purchasing a paw print can email pawsforpossibilities@co.broome.ny.us.
