Though I can probably update you May’s situation on Facebook, I’m sure there are hundreds of thousands of readers of this blog that aren’t on Facebook.
When I last wrote, we had found a spot for May (YAY!), but it was only very temporary (BOO!). I had to find a more permanent (at least for a month or two) and fast.
Thankfully, we did. After speaking to ten to fifteen rescue people and calling several possible places, I was put into contact with Penny Smith-Berk, who runs Northwind Kennels.
Penny is an incredible woman, she didn’t even want any money to foster May, even though she confided that they are struggling financially. She takes in dogs for free a lot, any of them belonging to women entering domestic violence shelters.
Not only did Stewie send a check for $500 (Northwind is exactly the kind of rescue facility that we want to support) but I am currently looking for a suitable venue in the Beford/Katonah/Mt. Kisco area to put on a comedy night fundraiser for them.
After May was there for only two and a half days, Aida (her owner) went to visit. Here’s what she reported…
“She is having a great time, the staff is very friendly. She is already less mean to other dogs… Thanks you so much so much for all you’ve done. Penny is so nice and understanding… May has changed for the better in only three days. Wow, my baby is a real dog Thank you Stewie to the Rescue and everyone.”
Aida and Ro have been staying with her mom but will be entering a homeless shelter this week. They are still looking for work.
In spite of Penny allowing May to stay for free, Stewie to the Rescue will continue to support Northwind, and specifically May’s residence and rehabilitation. If you want to help, you can donate specifically towards May on our website here.
BTW – I know Penny and Northwind was recommended to me by Claudia Duque, but not sure how I came into contact with Claudia. That’s how it goes in rescue…
