Donor Spotlight

At North Shore Animal League America, we are passionate about the care and welfare of animals. As a non-profit organization we rely on people with that same passion to help support us in our life-saving mission to rescue, nurture and adopt all animals in need. We would like to shine a light on some special individuals who give us that support, not just financially, but in their actions as volunteers and activists who continue to spread awareness to our cause.

Marcia and Bill Fallon

An only child, Marcia Fallon grew up in the company of cats, hamsters, parakeets, and dogs. Since then, she's never been without a circle of furry friends and their gift of unconditional love. Marcia and her husband, Bill, who also grew up with pets, share a deep affection for animals. In fact, on their wedding day, before attending their own reception, the newlyweds walked across a road "in full formal regalia" to feed some ducks.

Connie Guglielmo

Connie Guglielmo loves an elegant party, especially if the festivities benefit North Shore Animal League America's lifesaving programs. You'll see her at our Lewyt Humane Awards Luncheon in June and at our fall Gala - and she'll always be impeccably dressed, beautifully coiffed, and perfectly poised. It's hard to imagine her volunteering on weekends with a cat adoption group heavily involved in trap/neuter/release. But that's Connie, doing what she can whenever she can: anything for the animals.

Carmen and John Grossman

When it comes to spoiling their three Mutt-i-grees®, Carmen and John Grossman are in a league of their own.
Nothing delights them more than doting on their "babies," whether it's providing specially repared meals, carefully vetted dog walkers, or a fenced -in yeard with plenty of room to run and play. They can't imagine life without the company of dogs. And their concern doesn't stop there.

Julia Dorsett

Julia Dorsett will never forget her dad's wise advice: Give to those that cannot help themselves ... children, the Planet, and animals. "I always choose which organizations I donate to by my father's principle," says Julia, "and I feel great satisfaction when I know my gifts are truly helping those
in need."

Anna and Mitchell E. hart

For Anna and Mitchell Hart, of Great Neck, NY, the most meaningful way to honor the memory of those they've loved and lost is to help provide a loving future for homeless animals in need.

Jacquelyn Zehring

Jacquelyn Zehring has always been owned by cats. "I've never met a cat I didn't like - just some more than others!" says the Winchester, VA resident. Jackie first heard about North Shore Animal League America in the mid-70's. Jackie was searching for an organization that not only rescued animals in need, but also helped them heal and placed them in loving, permanent homes.

Tracy Krulik and Tom Dillickrath

For Tracey Krulik and Tom Dillickrath, of Alexandria, VA, compassion for animals involves both how they live - and how they give.
"Tom and I control the things we can control," says Tracy. "We control our food, for example, by being vegans. And we make our home welcoming, safe, and fun for our rescues. But we can help only so much. By supporting North Shore Animal League America, we can help so many more animals."

Daniel and Rosemary McCarthy

As modest as they are kind, Daniel and Rosemary McCarthy have supported our no-kill mission in many ways, including adoption. At the moment, they live with four League Mutt-i-grees: Abbey, Ester, Shiloh and Peanuts.
"The McCarthy's are true advocates for our animals," says Jill Burkhardt, Vice President of Major Gifts. "They enjoy donating in a quiet way, but we just had to tell you a little about their generosity, their adored pets, and their sincere kindness. We are honored to know them and to have their support now and in the future."

Vicky Hayes

Vicky Hayes' introduction to the League started with a few days of volunteering that grew quickly into a fierce commitment - and a new best friend. "A few years ago, I chose to spend a day volunteering at the shelter with 'Community Teamworks' co-workers from Goldman Sachs, which has long supported the League," Vicky recalls. "Then more volunteering led to an appointment to the League's National Advisory Board. Gradually my involvement opened my eyes - not just to the daily successes of placing animals in loving homes, but also to the immense efforts and passion of North Shore's leadership and staff that are required to make this happen."

Richard and Martha Kourbage

During their 45-year marriage, New Yorkers Richard and Martha Kourbage have adopted dogs, cat, fish, turtles, and even frogs! That's a lot of years...and a lot of animals. But for the Kourbages, it's still not enough. The fact is, they wish they could bring even more needy pets into their home.
But reality imposes limits, and so does the size of one's home. For the Kourbages, the solutions is to support humane organizations like North Shore Animal League America, something they've done generously for more than 20 years.

Joffre Burger

"A house is not a home without an animal to share it with." That's the motto of Joffre Burger, one of North Shore Animal League America's most generous donors, and we couldn't agree more!

Ann Nasary

When Ann Nasary was ready to bring a dog into her life, she went to a pet store and bought Munchkin. "It was before I knew that pet shop dogs come from puppy mills," says Ann. But once she learned that virtually all puppies purchased in stores come from these breeding facilities, Ann vowed to make the adoption of shelter pets a central cause in her life.
