UTICA, NY – It was definitely one for the record books.

WKTV viewers helped raise over $100,000 for the 13th annual Stevens-Swan Humane Society Telethon on Tuesday.

In fact the grand total raised was $118,117.

The telethon was held this year at The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties on Genesee Street for the first time.

They teamed up with Staff Works, bringing in dogs and cats from the shelter that are available for adoption.

Stevens-Swan Humane Society’s John Treen, says the money raised at the telethon will help take care of the animals at the shelter until they can find their forever home.

“We talk about medical care a lot. Medical care is probably one of the most expensive things for these animals and the shelter. But it’s not just medical care, it’s opening the doors, turning the lights on, plowing the driveways like we do 7 days a week, holidays, nights and weekends. We’re there all the time to take care of these pets.”

If you’re an animal lover and didn’t get a chance to donate to the telethon, but would still like to help the shelter out, you can do so by clicking here.
