(Syracuse, NY ) - The second annual fundraiser to benefit the Shamrock Animal Fund was scheduled to start at 6:30 at PJ's Pub and Grille in Armory Square. Twenty minutes before the doors were supposed to open people were already checking in. Ten minutes after the intended start the first of two rooms was filled with silent auction bidders. One half hour into the night we burst into the second overflow room and the night was off and running.
Some 300 people packed into the two exposed brick and beam banquet rooms of the old warehouse building that now houses this Armory Square night spot. Fund supporters browsed auction items, sipped on wine and beer and nibbled on veggies and cheese as the din of conversation energized the room. The drone of the bagpies and beat of the drum of the Emerald City pipe band highlighted the early entertainment. Paul Davie's solo acoustic rock carried on the party into its third and fourth hours. read more »

ITHACA, NY -- We winced. We hoped. We cried. How did we get so attached in so short a time? A dog that was left so alone as she struggled to survive, at last felt the warmth of a loving embrace from the hearts of caring people that stretch across Central New York. Angel the abandoned black lab from Cayuga County will long be remembered as much for what she gave in her final days of life as for what her owner did not give her as illness overcame her.
A Saturday morning call to 911 brought Town of Conquest Animal Control Officers Diane and Dave Matthews into Angel’s world. They brought light where darkness surely ruled. Angel was left on a country road. She was thirsty, hungry and hurt. The Matthews gave her water, food and care. They reached out for help in finding the owner who inflicted this cruelty. He has not been found. But, the Matthews did discover a path to get Angel the best chance possible to survive.
Their e-mail to me asked for helping bringing attention to one of the worst cases of cruelty they had seen in years. Angel’s foreleg had an infected, necrotic and open wound. They got the attention from CNYCentral over the air and online. The photos and video made us wince. They also got the help of the Shamrock Animal Fund and its supporters. read more »
