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!

Meet Terry

Also, meet Terry, a dog who was rescued by NYPD officers from a junkyard where he, his mom, and his siblings were neglected, living in filth, and starving. Terry required medical treatment for a serious abscess on his head, which was paid for by the Picasso Veterinary Fund of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. After treatment and tender loving care, Terry was well enough to leave the hospital. Renamed Finnegan, he now resides in a new adoptive home!

Spectator: $20
Kids: Free

Tickets can be purchased in advance online via PayPal, or at the door. Those who can't attend the event and still want to help NYC's animals --- and event attendees who want to help even more --- can also make a secure online donation.

All proceeds will be donated to the Picasso Veterinary Fund to help more homeless animals like Terry!

Tickets and donations are 100% tax-deductible!

Free Spay/Neuter Clinic for Westchester residents

While this event is oversubscribed for spay neuturing, they really need volunteers to assist, contributions, and towels or other clean linens. This event is for Westchester residents, and pitbulls are being spayed or neutured for free. It is a great service being provided. I hope you will consider contributing towards this worthy effort.

We rely on the kindness and generosity of animal lovers everywhere to make this special day happen. All donations are tax deductible!!

Every amount, large or small, is greatly appreciated and brings us one step closer to our goal. 100% of the money raised goes directly to the Spay/Neuter Clinic.

All vets and vet techs working with us are donating their time and not receiving any payment for their services.
