Johnson City (WBNG Binghamton) Protesters lined the streets near PETCO to voice their opinions and give back to those who have helped animals in the area.

Protesters say that while they want their voices to be heard, they are also trying to help the local animal shelters with supplies.

They are collecting dog food, cat liter, treats, and monetary donations that will all go back to the community.

"The Humane Society and Front street dog shelter-- they helped out during the floods and took in some people's animals when they couldn't take them to the shelters. We wanted to make sure people and shelters had supplies," says protester, Charlotte Kennedy.

Protesters say that while they don't necessarily want PETCO to stay in the area, if they can show some remorse and make big changes, the community may open their hearts back up to the company.
