March 25, 2019 - ECHL (ECHL) - Adirondack Thunder News Release

GLENS FALLS, NY - The Adirondack Thunder, proud ECHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, announced this afternoon details behind the second annual "Pucks For Paws" game at Cool Insuring Arena this Friday, March 29.

Doors will open Friday evening at 5:00 p.m. for all fans and the festivities start with a pre-game pet expo in Heritage Hall. Steve Caporizzo's Pet Connection will be holding a LIVE broadcast throughout the expo until 6:30 p.m. You can also visit with veterinarian Dr. Jon Nelson of Helping Paws Veterinary Hospital and check out the pets from 11th Hour Rescue and Home for Orphaned Pets Exists (HOPE), two awesome local pet shelters.

New for this year's event, the Adirondack Thunder created their first ever "Pucks For Paws" calendar featuring Thunder players photographed with an assortment of cats and dogs. The calendars will be sold for $20 and can be purchased in Heritage Hall throughout the night or in advance through the ticket link below - all photos come from team photographer Andy Camp!

In the main lobby, the Thunder will have a "donation station" to accept any pet items - food, toys, leashes, towels and all other shelter needs will be graciously accepted! Anyone who makes a donation will receive an official Pucks For Paws magnet!

Everyone's favorite, the intermission Wiener Dog Race, presented by Classy Clip, is back for a second year! We are looking for a few more wiener dogs to round out the race - if you'd like to participate, head to to register you and your pooch!

Tickets are available for the game at the Adirondack Thunder office, the Upstate Chevy Dealers Box Office at Cool Insuring Arena or online at If purchased through the previous link, a portion of proceeds will be donated to a local animal charity of your choice!
