Meet Ricky, WENY's SPCA Pet of the Week!
ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- Meet Ricky, WENY's Pet of the Week from the Chemung County Humane Society and SPCA!
Ricky is an eight-month-old terrier mix. He is a gem with a half-brown, half-white face almost exactly split down the middle. Ricky should be great to have around young kids an other animals. He is still a puppy so he can still learn how to interact with others. The SPCA recommends a meet and greet first before a family takes him to his new home.
The SPCA has upcoming openings in their vaccine clinic this week. Sessions will be held on Tuesday and Thursday. The organization offers routine shots as well as micro-chipping, nail trimming and flea prevention treatments, For more information, click here.
In order to make Ricky and his furry friends' stays at the SPCA enjoyable, Iron Flamingo Brewery will be holding a "Yappy Hour" at their Baker Street location on Thursday, May 11. In addition to raffle prizes, giveaways and a food truck, $1 of each beer sold from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. will be donated to the Chemung County SPCA.
The Chemung County SPCA says they are in dire need of wet cat and dog food. If you are interested in donating to the SPCA, more details can be found here. Other donation ideas can be found on the SPCA's wishlist.
