It is well documented that puppy stores get their puppies from puppy mills, puppy mills that condemn dogs to lifetimes of suffering in wire cages.

Responsible breeders do not sell their puppies in stores. They want to see the people who adopt their puppies.

When Sarah-Judith Bernstein from Scarsdale Middle School sent out her Bat Mitzvah invitations, she included a card asking her guests to bring donations for the New Rochelle Humane Society. Her request resulted in a huge carton filled with various items for the shelter animals and over $1,000 worth of checks. Sarah-Judith and her mother are part of the New Rochelle Humane Society’s Family Volunteer Program. They especially enjoy working with the shelter cats. When Sarah-Judith was asked if she will continue being a volunteer now that she has had her Bat Mitzvah, she answered emphatically, “OF COURSE!” The New Rochelle Humane Society would like to thank Sarah-Judith and her family for their kind generosity and all the help the provide to the homeless animals at our shelter.

On a very hot Saturday morning, Girl Scouts from Troop #2056 in Larchmont sat outside of the Stop and Shop for three and a half hours collecting donations for the New Rochelle Humane Society. They handed out a wish list of items needed, including the aisles in which they can be found. With over $250 of cash donations, they were able to purchase additional items specifically requested by Shelter Manager, Dana Rocco. We would like to thank the girls and their mother’s for all of their hard work. The shelter staff and animals greatly appreciate your help!

Students from the Osborn School in Rye recently paid a visit to the New Rochelle Humane Society. This group of 21 youngsters designed a flier asking for donations for the animals at our shelter and collected items such as toys, treats, food, beds, blankets, paper towels and cleaning supplies from several classes in the school. They also purchased an engraved brick for the path of our dog park as a Christmas gift for their teacher last month! They were a delightful group who we very much enjoyed having!

The New Rochelle Humane Society hosted a birthday party for an 8 year old girl, complete with pizza, birthday cake and gift bags supplied by her parents. Her 25 friends learned about the shelter, visited our cat rooms and dog kennel and enjoyed time with 2 dogs and a kitten. The birthday girl’s invitation to her friends said that she did not want gifts for herself, but for the shelter animals instead. Toys, blankets, treats and beds were among the many gifts we received. Everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.
