Vendors and pet lovers came together on Sunday, July 21, for the fourth annual Pet Connection held by The Animal Hospital in Guilderland. 

The event resulted in 150 animal adoptions, and raised over $10,000 to help homeless animals. Several thousand dollars worth of pet food was collected. Over 3,000 people flocked to the event, which included music and food, as well as tours of The Animal Hospital.
