Hilbert College class helps homeless pets

HAMBURG — One Hilbert College class has banded together for a cause: helping the homeless animals of the Buffalo area. The 11 students in the Persuasive Campaigns Class will host a free event from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 27.

“The Dog Walk” will be held at Hilbert College. Local businesses, including Clyde’s Feed, Canine Cupcakes, Laura’s Critter Care and other dog-related entities, will be in attendance. Animal rescue organizations will be attending, as well, and all donations will be given to the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter.

Dogs of all ages and breeds will be up for adoption. The event will also include food from local food trucks and activities and games for all ages. Attendees may bring their dogs (no retractable leashes).

A blessing of the animals ceremony, performed by Deacon Dennis Conroy, will take place at 12:30 p.m.

The involved students said that their goal is to raise awareness about the importance of animal adoption. Hamburg resident Juliet Talarico said that she was inspired by her own shelter dog, Tanner; she is the one who chose the event theme. “Some shelter dogs have lived the worst lives, and want nothing more than to be loved and given a chance,” she said. “We’re hoping to show Hamburg how amazing rescue dogs truly are.”

Donations will be accepted and will be given to the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter. For more information, email
