Golf4Pets tournament & adoption clinic to benefit Pet Connection

Posted:

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. – Sunday is the Golf4Pets Tournament and adoption clinic at the Van Patten Golf Club. 

NEWS 10 ABC's Steve Caporizzo's Pet Connection will be there to host the adoption clinic from 9a.m.- 1.p.m for furry friends looking for forever homes. 

"This year we wanted the golfers to meet the pets to know where their money and donations are going. So we combined it so it's the best of both worlds," said Caporizzo.

There will be seven rescue groups and shelters in attendance that are giving $50 off the adoption fees. 

"It's always important for us to have people be more aware of the animals in need rather than going out and purchasing a pet. There are a lot that need to be rescued," said Gayle Blakesley, a volunteer at Companion Animal Placement Program.

The fourth annual golf tournament will begin at 11a.m.  Lunch and dinner will be served and those in attendance will have a chance to win raffle items. 

Proceeds will benefit Steve Caporizzo's Pet Connection.

Blankets and food donations are appreciated.

Shelters and rescues groups who will be at Sunday's event are The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, Animal Protective Foundation, Homeward Bound, 11th Hour Rescue, Companion Animal Placement Program, Happy Cat Rescue, Montgomery County SPCA, and Whiskers.
