100 Women Who Care about Long Island's July Meeting Results: Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center to receive over $7,000

Press Releases

Over $7,000 to Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center!

Huntington, NY - July 16th, 2014 - On July 8, members of 100 Women Who Care about Long Island voted to award this meeting’s member donation checks to Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center, located in Huntington.

Charter member, Meg Beaufrere, who nominated Little Shelter, shared these thoughts on their being selected by their members to receive the donation at this meeting:

“What can I say? Four times was the charm! 100 Women has now had five meetings since inception. Little Shelter has been selected as one of the three charities (for a vote) at four of the five meetings. This was a special “win” and so well deserved! That is music to our ears!

Little Shelter has been an outstanding presence in their community for over 87 years. They are a No Kill Shelter and rescue hurt, abandoned, ill and unwanted dogs and cats that are facing certain death in hi-kill municipal shelters and place them in deserving homes. Little Shelter touches the lives of over 2,000 animals each year through their groundbreaking programs, and has state of the art medical facilities for their 100% spay and neuter program. Little Shelter has been named “Best of Long Island” for five straight years (2010-2014). They are also a part of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC Animals, and have the distinction of being the only shelter not located in NYC to be included in the Alliance.

This donation to Little Shelter will make a big impact, and they are now focusing on how they will use the funds for the most benefit.”

Little Shelter will share how they will be using their member’s donation at their next meeting, October 14.

About 100 Women Who Care about Long Island
100 Women Who Care about Long Island is a philanthropic group formed for local women who are interested in supporting their communities by contributing to Long Island charities together as a group to increase the donation impact.

All of their members/teams make a pledge to 100 Women Who Care about Long Island to make an annual donation of $400. This equates to their writing a $100 check made payable to the winning charity, even if they are not in attendance, at each of their quarterly meetings.

As individuals it is difficult to make a very large impact, but as a group, 100 Women Who Care about Long Island have the ability to contribute to the growth of their communities in ways that they never before thought possible. The size of their quarterly donations is limited only by the members they have!

Their next meeting is Tuesday October 14, from 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm at Jewel Restaurant in Melville (on Route 110 at the LIE in Rubie Corporate Plaza). After the meeting 100 Women Who Care about Long Island invites you to join us for some socializing and networking. There will be complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar available.
