BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The Binghamton Senators announced today that Friday, Feb. 15 is Pucks 4 Paws Night, which is set to take place as the team hosts the Syracuse Crunch.
The first 250 fans through the doors will receive a Pucks 4 Paws Vuvuzela horn courtesy of Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital.
Fans are encouraged to visit the displays of the various local shelters and rescues on the main concourse of the arena. The Broome County Humane Society, Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital, Min Pin Rescue and Spring to Rescue Golden Retriever Rescue will be among the various organizations present that evening. Displays will include information on adoption and care of pets. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet cats and dogs that are available for adoption.
Fans are encouraged to visit the Pucks 4 Paws merchandise table as well. A very limited number of the 2013 Binghamton Senators Pucks 4 Paws calendars remain.

There are also Pucks 4 Paws baseball style t-shirts available for $15.
Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital is also raffling off a special Binghamton Senators pendant, designed exclusively for Pucks 4 Paws by CD Daniel & Co. Fine Jewelry. The pendant, valued at $1,500, is reversible. One side features a diamond paw print, while the other features the B-Sens logo accented by rubies and black diamonds. Raffle tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Pucks 4 Paws merchandise table, or in advance of Friday's game at the B-Sens executive offices and Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital (716 Harry L Drive, Johnson City) during regular business hours. A winner will be drawn at random for the pendant at the conclusion of the second intermission this Friday.
