SPCA hike to honor local hound owner


Tonawanda News — Before the walk, the SPCA will honor Cacciatore for his involvement in the attempt to rescue Scrufari and for adopting his dogs.

“Taking on three dogs, that’s an incredible responsibility,” Lewis said. “And we just wanted to express our appreciation for that.”

The shelter will also recognize and honor what they call the “animal heroes” who rescued a pitbull puppy named Gladys from a trash can in an ally off of 30th Street. Two employees of Modern Disposal found the severely injured dog as they were making their rounds on April 24. 

Like Scrufari’s dogs, Gladys, now healed from her injuries, will also be taking part in the walk.
