E-mail Print PDF

The Potsdam Humane Society's Animal Shelter will have power during an electrical outage due to a new 40KW generator recently installed at the facility.

It took a team of community businesses to pull off the project. USDA Rural Development, through the Community Facilities Program with the assistance of Renee Hotte, Area Specialist, and New York State started the project off with $20,000 dollars, each contributing a $10,000 grant.

L to R: Alysia Maynard, PHS Shelter Exec. Director; Bob Watson, Jr, Watson Electric; Thomas Owney and Timothy Burley, C2AE Engineering Consultants-Canton; and Renee Hotte, Area Specialist, USDA Rural Development, celebrated the first test of the New 40KW Generator installed at the animal shelter at 17 Madrid Avenue Potsdam.

A Webstore for Potsdam Humane Society

E-mail Print PDF

Have you heard about the new webstore that supports the Potsdam Humane Society?  It carries custom clothing for men, women and children including tee shirts and hoodies with your choice of a PHS logo or a variety of prints. You can select your garment size and color from the options provided for each garment.

You can also purchase accessories including a PHS hat, stadium blanket and shopping bag. Most importantly, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of any item benefits the Potsdam Humane Society.

While you can conveniently shop for webstore items online at webstore.potsdamhumanesociety.org, the PHS animal shelter has some items on display now for sale and expects to carry more items in the very near future.

All items in the PHS webstore are designed and sold by Stacked Graphics (stackedgraphics.com). Located in Tupper Lake and operated by Pat Bedore
 and Andrew McClelland, Stacked Graphics specializes in custom clothing, silk screening, embroidery, website design and promotional products.
