New Animal Shelter and Wildlife Rehab (Aired on May 19 and 20, 2018) Josephine Santoro and Carl Syslo visit RadioRotary to tell about the new Safe Haven Animal Shelter $ Wildlife Center, located in Stormville in southern Dutchess County (Town of Beekman). The first phase of their operation will be to provide a no-kill shelter for injured or orphaned dogs, which can be adopted after any necessary rehab. These dogs will be kept in kennels until adopted, but in the second phase a new building, specially designed for making dogs and cats feel at home (and not imprisoned) will take over. The original kennel building will be remade for wildlife rehab—Ms. Santoro is a certified wildlife rehabilitator. An important adjunct to the Stormville facility is the Thrift Shop specializing in reselling donated pet-related products and household items. On Saturdays the Thrift Shop houses a Pet-Food Pantry, supplying free pet food to low-income pet owners.
