JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. – Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital announced today that they have partnered with the Binghamton Senators hockey club in their third annual effort to assist the Southern Tier pet population, dubbed “Pucks 4 Paws”.
The initiative will officially kick off tonight with the debut of the 2014 Binghamton Senators Pucks 4 Paws calendar. The 16-month calendar features photos of B-Sens players, coaches and staff members with their family pets or adoptable pets from the Broome County Humane Society. The limited edition calendars are $20 and available while supplies last.
For the second consecutive year Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital will be raffling off a special piece of jewelry designed exclusively for Pucks 4 Paws by CD Daniel & Co. Fine Jewelry. The white gold medallion, valued at $1,500, is reversible. One side features a sand etched hand print and paw print circled by diamonds, while the other side features the sand etched B-Sens logo circled by rubies and black diamonds. The medallion will be on display at the Pucks 4 Paws table on the arena concourse for all upcoming B-Sens home games until the drawing which is set to take place on March 15. Entrants need not be present to win. Raffle tickets are available for $10.
Pucks 4 Paws supporters are also encouraged to purchase a 2014 Pucks 4 Paws t-shirt, available in sizes small to extra large, for $20. There will also be a raffle for a pair of special themed baskets, featuring toys and treats for the special canine or feline in your life. Also included in the baskets are Pucks 4 Paws t-shirts and a pair of B-Sens ticket vouchers. Tickets for the basket raffle are $1 for three or $5 for an arm’s length.
The limited edition calendars, raffle tickets and t-shirts are all available for purchase at the Pucks 4 Paws table on the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena concourse for all upcoming B-Sens home games, starting tonight as the team hosts the Hershey Bears (doors open at 6 p.m.).

Dickin Memorial Animal Hospital and the B-Sens together have raised over $10,000 through their efforts over the past two hockey seasons. Their hope is to surpass that this season.
