YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The Yorktown Teen Center held its second annual Dog Toy Event on Friday, Sept. 15. Nicole Fasce, program director, once again teamed up with Volunteer New York to sponsor the event. Last year, volunteers made 80 toys. This year, due to the overwhelming response from the community, volunteers were able to make 180 dog toys to benefit the SPCA in Briarcliff.

Toys for the shelter dogs were made from cutting T-shirts and then braiding and knotting them to form a pull toy. This process is quite tedious, but the volunteers got it done before the evening came to a close.
