NEW HARTFORD- The weather held up on Saturday for the 7th annual Bikers for animals in Oneida County.

The ride started at Harley-Davidon of Utica on Commercial Drive and travelled 50 miles around the city to the F.X. Matt Brewery.

The ride raises money for the Stevens- Swan Humane Society, which supports over 2,000 animals a year.

"We survive solely on events like this and donations from the general public. The community has been so great to come out and help us with everything we do," said John Treen with the Stevens-Swan Humane Society.

"Events like this make a huge difference in getting the animals vetted, spayed, neutered, micro chipped, everything. Everything we do at events like this go back into helping the animals here in Oneida County," he added.

Average monthly vet costs per animal is about $300.00.
