It must REALLY be spring when Brooks BBQ sets up shop and lights their grills!  They’ll be doing just that on Saturday April 18 in the parking lot of Noble Ace Hardware, Main St/Rte 7, in Cobleskill. Savor that first taste of summer and support ASSV!   Chicken halves $7, ribs $9.  Starting approximately 11:30 AM until sold out. No advance tickets – first come, first served.  See you there!

While we love hearing the “happily ever after” stories of all our Shelter pets, Grover’s is very special.  After having been abandoned by his former owners who left town, this lab mix was  brought to our Shelter a month later.   After being vet-checked, updated on his vaccines, and neutered, he settled in to life at the Shelter awaiting a forever home.   Not only did he get that, but he was also hand-picked to undergo training with the Department of Homeland Security and landed himself a whole new career!  Best of luck, Grover – we are SO proud of you!!
