ENDICOTT (WBNG) -- A local shop in Endicott is reminding residents to not only shop locally and support local artists and businesses but to also adopt locally.
The Artisan Shop in Endicott is a store that sells only products made by local artists.
The Owner, Michael Hakes, says right now, the store is a pop-up.
He explained how it came to be, saying that in the wake of the pandemic, 10 local artists and friends decided to come together to sell their products.
The Adopt and Shop event organizers from The Artisan Shop teamed up with Every Dog's Dream Rescue to promote adoption, and there were many kittens at the event ready to be taken home.
Organizers say its important to support one another in the community.
If you're looking to adopt, Every Dog's Dream Rescue says to go to their website and fill out an application form.
They also say they hope to partner with The Artisan Shop sometime again soon for another adoption event.
And make sure to stop by when you can, as right now the store is a pop-up and might only be open for a little while longer.
The shop was also asking people to sign cards as they left which will be delivered to nursing homes later in the holiday season.
You can visit the store in Endicott which is attached to the Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital.
