My beloved agent’s oldest daughter Jesse, a fan and an animal lover and rescuer, died very suddenly. If you feel so inclined, would you make a donation to one of these causes that she supported? Even if it’s just a couple of dollars, it would help, as you know. Think of it as good wishes that will help to carry her to the Summerlands:
- Brooklyn’s Pit Bull Rescue (a cause Jesse strongly and passionately supported)
- Glen Wild Animal Rescue
- Sean Casey Animal Rescue
- Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue
- NY Rescue Resources INC (this is a resource center only–it will lead you to other organizations with animals in need)
