TROY, N.Y. – An animal welfare gala, Around the World for 80
Strays, was held Saturday to benefit the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.
Founded in 1887, the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society is the
largest animal protection agency in the Capital Region and serves as the SPCA
for Albany and Rensselaer Counties, investigating and prosecuting cases of
animal cruelty. The society does not receive local, state or government
funding, nor does it receive funding from any national groups such as the ASPCA
or Humane Society of the United States.
The event was held at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Hilton Garden
inn located at 235 Hoosick Street in Troy.
