Suffolk's Oldest Humane Society, Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center celebrated 90 Years of Rescue as supporters gathered in Huntington, New York on April 2, 2017.
This is a landmark year and exciting event for all of Little Shelter's staff, volunteers, friends and families. In commemoration of this huge milestone in saving lives, Little Shelter invited the public to join them for an afternoon of celebration.
Not only has Little Shelter maintained its stance to rescue animals in its own community, but has contributed to the cause on a national scale through its Passage to Freedom program. Little Shelter prides itself on being a leader in its community and it should come as no surprise that recently they have raised the bar of rescue even higher. This year the Passage to Freedom program crossed international borders with rescue transports from Baku, Thailand and Korea.
"In the past 90 years Little Shelter has done some amazing things thanks to its supporters." Commented President Maryann Chernovsky. "I'm very proud to be a part of such an amazing place and we have big plans for the future to expand our reach in rescue and in our community give back programs."
Little Shelter is a non-profit no-kill animal shelter that relies on the support of the community to continue its mission. Currently Little Shelter helps rescue and re-home over 2000 animals a year and is looking to increase that number in the coming years. Contributors celebrated Little Shelter's 90th anniversary this past Sunday.
I had the chance to chat with Executive Director: David Ceely and Maryann Chernovsky, President CEO of Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center.
They both discussed The meat trade and killing dogs in China and Korea.
Dogs are forced into filthy cages and transported long hours — or locked away on farms for months or years — under horrific conditions, then are brutally butchered for profit as part of the dog meat trade.
Dogs are hung, electrocuted, and sometimes left fully conscious as they’re slaughtered. Many are stolen pets, still wearing their collars.
The Lychee and Dog Meat Festival, commonly referred to as Yulin Dog Meat Festival, is an annual celebration held in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice in which festival goers eat dog meat and lychees. The festival spans about ten days during which it is estimated that 10,000–15,000 dogs are consumed.
Both Maryann and David with the help of Little Shelter and other organizations are trying to get more involved in stopping the dog meat trade.
