NYRA to Host Virtual Dog Adoption Series During Saratoga Meet


Saratoga | Sarah Andrew

The New York Racing Association will help connect four-legged friends with their forever homes by hosting a Virtual Dog Adoption Series during the 2020 meet at Saratoga Race Course, which runs through Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 7.

The series will highlight dogs available for adoption in partnership with the Saratoga County Animal Shelter and Greyhound Rescue of New York. NYRA will feature photos and a brief description of each dog with new dogs added as they become available throughout the meet. NYRA will underwrite the paperwork for each adoption up to $50.

The Virtual Dog Adoption Series will be hosted online at NYRA.com/DogAdoption.

The online series follows the success of last season’s inaugural one-day dog adoption clinic at Saratoga Race Course, which resulted in the adoption of four dogs and generated nearly 30 new applications.

“The Saratoga County Animal Shelter is pleased to partner with NYRA on its Virtual Dog Adoption Series,” said Saratoga County Animal Shelter Public Relations Coordinator Karlianna Russell. “We are grateful for the opportunity to showcase our adoptable dogs.”
