Mount Vernon Animal Shelter dog walkers needed


Got this plea from The Mount Vernon (NY) Animal Shelter. Won’t you consider it?

With the come-on “Your feet + 2 feet = Heaven for a Dog”, Pet Rescue is making a plea to recruit walkers for the dogs at the Mount Vernon Animal Shelter. Judy Matos, Beth McCabe, Patty and Mary Oddoux and Celine Martin of Pet Rescue are walking and working closely with Megan Webster, the acting manager, Shawn Carroll and Luis Familia to help place dogs in adoptive homes and to make all of them more comfortable and ready for adoption. Another group is working with cats.

The Mount Vernon shelter, built in the mid 1970s serves a large population. The current recession has not lightened the responsibilities and burden that the shelter must carry. The small dedicated staff, occupied with countless other responsibilities, has to rely on volunteers to walk the dogs for exercise and fresh air.
On a positive note, the building, once largely standing alone just off Sanford Boulevard, now has bright new neighbors, Bed Bath & Beyond, Petco, TJ Max and Target, that draw people from a wide area in Westchester and the Bronx. The shelter address is 60 Garden Ave., just behind Target and Bed Bath & Beyond. Pet Rescue hopes visitors will combine shopping with walking the dogs or adopting a companion animal from the shelter. Walkers are needed every day, seven days a week. They must be at least 18 years old and can show up between 8 and 11 a.m. The walkers already on board have reported not only happier dogs but their own improved fitness and weight loss. They see it as a win-win situation and expect that others will too.
To sign up, call Matos at 914-632-7155, McCabe at 914- 216 2190, or Pet Rescue 914-834-6955, or e-mail petrescueNY@aol.com.

    Thanks for your publication. I would also love to opinion that the first thing you will need to accomplish is determine if you really need credit repair. To do that you simply must get your hands on a replica of your credit file. That should not be difficult, considering that the government mandates that you are allowed to have one cost-free copy of the credit report on a yearly basis. You just have to consult the right people today. You can either read the website for that Federal Trade Commission or perhaps contact one of the leading credit agencies immediately.

    One thing I have actually noticed is always that there are plenty of misconceptions regarding the banks intentions whenever talking about property foreclosure. One delusion in particular is always that the bank needs to have your house. The financial institution wants your cash, not your property. They want the amount of money they lent you together with interest. Staying away from the bank will simply draw a new foreclosed realization. Thanks for your write-up.

    So there’s absolutely nothing like Meratol side effects. 2) Brown Sea weed: rich in minerals and reduce calorie intake. When considering the application of a prescription dependent weight loss pills, independent of the issue of the value of the medication, the actual effectiveness and also safety of the supplement are usually two major factors that are often paramount to most individuals and that for good cause.
