May 6, 2021 – The APF was recognized as one of the Chamber of Schenectady County’s “2021 Good News Awardees.” The award was received at a special luncheon held at the River Stone Manor in Glenville on May 6th. We were one of seven non-profits and businesses to receive accolades.

According to Debbie Erck, Director of Signature Events for the Chamber, “the Selection Committee was very impressed with the creative ways the APF pivoted to the pandemic changes last year.” We offered curbside adoptions and clinic services, accommodated an increased demand for pet food and supplies from our pantry, and provided pet behavior consultations by phone to help keep pets in the home.

Thanks to our wonderful staff and volunteers who worked diligently during a challenging time to meet the needs of our pet community.
