WRHA: Meet Ralph

The ASPCA estimates that approximately 3.3 million dogs enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year, where they sit waiting to be adopted into a loving home. We are encouraging animal lovers to celebrate Adopt a Shelter Dog Month by adopting a dog from Wanderers Rest Humane Association in Canastota. We’re asking everyone to come #FindYourFido!
