From our friends at the Knights of Columbus Council #126. They write:
Sean Casey’s Animal Rescue located in Brooklyn, New York is a not for profit organization whose endeavor is to aid unfortunate animals in the interest of a higher quality of life. They take in rescued, confiscated, neglected, injured, ill, unmanageable, or otherwise unwanted animals from private owners, zoos, shelters, and other public organizations. These animals are cared for, and/or rehabilitated to the best of their ability and means until which time they can be found healthy, happy homes – whether it be through adoption to qualified candidates or legally released into habitats suitable to the specific species in conjunction with licensed wildlife rehabilitators.
Our friends from Covenant Ballet Theatre (CBT) and Sean Casey Animal Rescue Project (SCARP) held their first “rescuethon” or dog walk-a-thon on Saturday, May 5, in Marine Park.
While the dancers danced and the dogs walked, the rain came down, but that didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit. Even if the weather was gloomy, the event was anything but! There was a great turnout from both humans and canines.
Members from CBT’s Junior Company danced performing dances that were canine-related, such as “How much is that doggy in the window?” and “The puppy song.” Dogs from SCARP were available for adoption. A few even found new homes.
Artistic Director of CBT, Marla Hirokawa, planned this event to help raise money for the academy’s scholarship program and for the Sean Casey Animal Rescue Center.
The”rescuethon” was a success and CBT plans to have another walk next year…hopefully, with the sun joining in!
The following is from our friends at the YM-YWHA of Brighton-Manhattan Beach:

Some heartbreaking news stories should really come with warning labels or, in the very least, a box of tissues.
The Daily News ran a piece on the overcrowded and critically overwhelmed Sean Casey Animal Shelter that, if you are an animal lover, will plainly rip your heart out and reduce you to a quivering bowl of jelly.
Run by the 30-year-old Casey, the Windsor Terrace animal shelter’s astronomically high vet bills per month are more money than some of us have ever possessed in our lifetimes. Running on an incredibly small budget and bursting at the seams, Sean Casey Animal Shelter just plain needs help… badly.
