UTICA, N.Y. - The Stevens Swan Humane Society’s annual telethon presented by StaffWorks surpassed its goal of $100-thousand.

The telethon is a key fundraisers for the shelter. Shelter representatives said money raised goes to operational costs and is vital to keeping the shelter afloat month to month.

“All of these donations go right back into the Stevens Swan Humane Society, in helping our local pets within Oneida County,” John Treen, shelter manager. “They're spayed, they're neutered, they're micro chipped, they're vaccinated. A lot of pets, if they're older pets, they get dentals which is a huge expense to the shelter, but it's better for the health of the pet.”

The total amount raised thus far is - $100,225.00. Shelter officials said that total will likely go up as the days go on because more people will likely make pledges.
