Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting Glen Cove’s Animal Lovers’ League with District Attorney Kathleen Rice to announce a bill increasing penalties for those found guilty of animal cruelty.
The league’s work is remarkable because of the outstanding volunteer effort that Joan Phillips and her crew perform every day. Their tireless work in rescuing cats and dogs, sheltering, feeding, walking, and protecting them and attending to their medical needs is second-to-none.
Most of all, The Animal Lovers’ League has successfully found homes for its cats and dogs with loving and responsible families. This noble mission is made possible because of the financial support of our wonderful community.
This weekend, Saturday, May 5 and Sunday, May 6, The Animal Lovers’ League hosts its annual Plants, Baked Goods and Hand-Crafted Jewelry Sale.
The important fundraiser will take place at The Animal Lovers’ League located at 40 Shore Road in Glen Cove, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will happen rain or shine so I hope to see you all there to help support this great organization.
