Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The second annual Make a Difference Day at the Broome County Dog Shelter had tails wagging.

The shelter held an open house on Saturday to let visitors meet and walk dogs available for adoption.

The shelter takes in stray and unwanted dogs from around the county.

There can be up to 40 dogs at a time, and all dogs receive their own pen, food and veterinary care.

"We go through quite a bit of food, we only have so much budgeted for the food that we do get. Donations are extremely important for stuff like the dog food that we go through. The donations help us out so we can have more money for other things, like vet care," manager Kelly Conlon said.

Currently, the shelter has two litters of puppies ready for a new home.
