JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — Binghamton University students volunteered their time over the weekend for the fifth annual Alumni Global Day of Service.
With several service projects taking place across the Southern Tier, one group donated their time to Every Dog’s Dream, a local nonprofit that works to rescue dogs and cats and prepare them for adoption.
Students spent the morning cleaning cages, litter boxes, and even spending some quality times with the animals.
“It’s their Sunday, it’s their day off, and it’s a busy time for them in the semester. It’s almost finals, so we’re really appreciative. And it’s good to see that they care about this community, it’s not just school. Here’s the place we went, and we love the community, and we want to help out,” said Elise Thornley, an alumna of BU.
For the students, it was a way to give back and help animals who are in need of forever homes.
“Dogs, they live for 10 or 15 years, so for them we are their whole life. It’s so important that we give them the best life they can have,” said Kristen Deacon, a senior at BU.
All of the dogs and cats at Every Dog’s Dream are ready and available for adoption. To find out how you can adopt a furry friend, or donate to the nonprofit, visit their website.
