Broome County Dog Shelter Holds "Paws on the Plaza" Event to De-stress Government Employees

Posted: Updated:

The Broome County Dog Shelter held its first event at Government Plaza Thursday.

“Paws on the Plaza” encourages government employees to socialize with adoptable dogs on their lunch break as a way to destress.

The shelter currently has 36 dogs and 15-20 in the adoption program.

Kelly Conlon, Manager of the Broome County Dog Shelter, expressed firsthand how de-stressing with the dogs is a great experience.

When I am at work at the dog shelter and I get a little stressed out, I go in a room and de-stress or go out with one of the dogs and it helps. I feel so much better after having a dogs love and the dogs also benefit as well.

The shelter hopes to continue this event every few weeks at the plaza.
