The Syracuse Chiefs are proud to announce that Dr. Sandra Fitzpatrick owner of Beaver Lake Animal Hospital has donated $2,000.00 to Humane CNY as a part of an annual sponsorship promotion. Dr. Sandra Fitzpatrick presented the check to Humane CNY today at the NBT Bank Stadium, the home of the Syracuse Chiefs.

Each season Dr. Sandra Fitzpatrick of Beaver Lake Animal Hospital partners with the Chiefs to help raise awareness for the overpopulation of pets. Every time a Chiefs' relief pitcher strikes out an opposing batter at NBT Bank Stadium, a $10.00 donation is made to Humane CNY. Since 2008, Dr. Sandra Fitzpatrick has personally donated over $18,000 through this promotion.

Humane CNY is a nonprofit no-kill shelter in Syracuse. Humane CNY is a no-kill, not-for-profit animal shelter, with a mission to find loving homes for the animals who need them.

"On behalf of the Syracuse Chiefs we would like to thank Dr. Fitzpatrick for once again partnering with the Chiefs to raise funds for such a fantastic organization," Jason Smorol, Syracuse Chiefs General Manager.
