Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

ASPCA Grants $140,000 to Yonkers Animal Shelter

WOW!  A BIG THANK YOU to the ASPCA. I already loved them, and am a monthly donor, but this is such a welcomed development for the New Yonkers Animal Shelter.  The dogs and cats there need and deserve a new and updated shelter, and we are that much closer to the goal. Thanks to the hard work of the Fundraising Committee for the New Yonkers Animal Shelter (headed by Kay Pistone Carucci), and especially Augie Cambria - Commissioner of Parks in the City of Yonkers (which oversees the shelter), and volunteers Rosemary and Leila, who initiated the application process with the ASPCA for the committee on which they serve. Great job, everyone!  We are all thrilled! Teamwork is important.

Please visit to see what they are working on. It is a fine organization and I am proud to be a regular supporter.
