It's heartwarming to see so many capable people gathering together to help out the critter-needy. It didn't say, but I'm assuming that with this 'natural' habitat where the animals live out their lives (or are eventually able to be adopted out), that they are at least spayed/neutered and given basic vaccinines.

Here's hoping to many more such events all over. So many more need shelter and homes.

I'm always happy when I hear that any money is given to help the animals....and what a great place to "start" at.....now, they just need to keep up the work, and keep raising money for the animals....so many of them are in need....

Plus, it's always so hard for me to go to the shelter, as I always want to take ALL those faces home....those eyes they give you can really tug at the ol' heart strings.

I've run into so many people in different areas of the country who have a negative opinion of NYC. If only they realized how many people live in the city who have such kind hearts and caring ways. This story is only one example of that.

it would be great for more of these public figures to speak out more and even if it is a brief appearance to help motivate people to step up and donate, volunteer, foster and adopt

I agree too....it's just a "start"...they need to keep on doing different fund raisers, as there are just so many animals out there to help.

I'm sure any amount raised will be put to good use. I'm not sure how far $19,000 will go, considering the "special needs" of the animals, but it is $19,000 more than they had.
