2017 Annual Fund Campaign

LucyA call came in from someone who found a baby kitten lying outside on the wet ground, struggling to breathe. A volunteer rushed to get her and brought her to our vet - the kitten was dehydrated and weighed less than 2 lbs. She needed antibiotics, a nebulizer and special care so our volunteer took her home to foster and named her Lucy. A few weeks later, Lucy was well enough to be adopted and found a forever home.
Mona arrived emaciated and trying to nurse her 8 puppies with her fatigued body. It was heartbreaking to see her underweight puppies lying listless and struggling to survive. The whole family needed urgent care which we provided and soon they each found a loving home.

The list goes on and on. They each have a story. They each need us. They each deserve a second chance.

We help animals wherever and whenever we can. In addition to taking in dogs and cats surrendered by individuals and organizations in our community, we continue working with a one-person rescue in rural Delbarton, West Virginia - plus we assist overwhelmed shelters in Louisiana, Houston and Los Angeles. Most recently, we have been helping dogs rescued from the South Korean meat trade. We have a dedicated committee helping to reunite people with their lost pets and volunteers all over Westchester feeding and offering assistance to outdoor cats. Our work never stops.

Thanks to your generous support, over the past year we have found loving homes for close to 750 dogs and cats; provided TNR services for 200 feral cats; helped local rescues by neutering 400 animals; and provided clinic services for 1,000 more. Many more animals like Lucy and Mona who needed surgery or specialty vet care were treated in our clinic or by local vets we work with. But we cannot accomplish all of this alone. Saving precious lives costs money. In order to continue our life-saving efforts, we need your help.

We do not receive government funding and must rely on donations to support our work. While we are still a mostly volunteer organization, we do have a small dedicated staff plus many other expenses like ongoing maintenance to the property; food, supplies and other essentials for our animals; and our endless vet bills.

I hope you will consider making a special gift today to our Annual Fund. Your contribution is a gift to help animals in need. You can be sure that every donation is used efficiently for maximum impact and any amount - big or small - makes a difference. Thank you in advance for your continued support and generosity.
