In 2012, Karen saved a shelter animal who was considered dangerous by the Shelter Staff. So dangerous, that Karen had to hire an Attorney to sign off on the paperwork to assume full liability of the dog. The Shelter did not want to get sued if the dog bit anyone. The attorney charged Karen $3000 because he had to research this matter as attorneys usually are not asked to do this. The dog was fearful not dangerous. It was a long process that lasted two months so it was a celebration when he was released. That dog's name is Marty and is very happy living with Karen, so happy he gained 15 pounds so now he is dieting..lol. There were so many volunteers that offered their FREE service. Big thanks to Ranjay Mitra for the professional photos, Gregory Di Sessa, Ana Di Sessa for the video and Lou's Limo for the free ride.
Save Animals In Shelters, Inc. worked with a New Jersey based group to get 20,000 signatures to present Governor Chris Christie. This bill would make New Jersey a "no kill" state. The petition succeeded in its goal and was signed by over 22,000 individuals.
During the Holiday season, we held a supply drive for a local animal shelter. We networked with over 70 local businesses asking them to set up a donation box to accept new and used pet supplies. The response we received was TREMENDOUS and we are very happy by how much we were able to give back to our local shelter
