WEST SENECA, N.Y. — A beloved friend of the SPCA Serving Erie County was honored on Wednesday.
2 On Your Side has told you about Mary Alloy before. She is the owner of the Just Pizza on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst, and she is battling a rare form of cancer.
But through it all, she spends a huge chunk of her time helping out the SPCA, and on Wednesday, it celebrated Mary Alloy Day at the SPCA.
Officials unveiled a kennel that is named in her honor. It is kennel B-7, for her birthday on the seventh.
Alloy has been helping for several years now, and she loves being able to provide for the animals.
"I don't know why I started. It just feels special, it just feels important, and it's just what I want to do," Alloy said. "I feel like I was meant to do these things, so as soon as I got the pizzeria, it just felt like from that first letter from when I got invited to do that, it just feels like that was what I was meant to do."
The SPCA Serving Erie County will also honor Alloy in its annual Paws in the Park event, which will be from August 28 through September 25.
