Donna and Fred Nives Receive
Shelter Our Strays Award

 

Donna and Fred Nives of Greenwich received the first Shelter Our Strays Award for their decades of support rescuing and sheltering animals in Greenwich and the surrounding areas. The award was presented at the Shelter Our Strays Cocktail Reception fundraiser Tuesday May 15 at the Bruce Museum.

Shelter Our Strays (SOS) is a charitable committee organized under the auspices of the Bruce Museum, which is working to help fund and arrange for a new Animal Control shelter for the Town of Greenwich. In its first year SOS raised $273,000 toward its five-year goal of $750,000.

Judge Judy Sheindlin of Greenwich, television’s Judge Judy and a local animal shelter supporter, presented the Shelter Our Strays Award to Mr. and Mrs. Nives, saying that abused or rejected dogs and cats “are God’s creatures without a voice. Donna and Fred have been giving the voice that strays are entitled to.”

Donna Nives is president and co-founder of Adopt-A-Dog of Greenwich and Armonk, NY, which has been rescuing and sheltering abandoned dogs and cats and finding permanent homes for them since 1981. Greenwich Animal Control Officer Allyson Halm, who is a member of the SOS committee, described Mrs. Nives at the ceremony as “a devoted soul on a mission of caring for animals that, for the past 26 years, has involved great sacrifice that few will ever know.”

“A Labor of Love”

As Mrs. Nives expressed gratitude to SOS and to award sponsor UBS Financial Services of Greenwich, she said, “We understand the dire necessity for a new Animal Control building in Greenwich, and it pleases me that people understand the importance of the work we have been doing in saving strays. Whatever I have been doing to protect animals for all these years, and whatever my ever-suffering husband has been doing,” Mrs. Nives interjected with a smile, “it’s been a labor of love.”

Fred Nives added, jokingly, “The only credit I should get is as the long-suffering husband.” Then, with a serious tribute, he noted, “The real credit goes to the volunteers and the committee and the contributors who make it all a reality.”

Adopt-A-Dog is a regional agency serving western Connecticut, Westchester County, NY, and beyond. Headquarters offices are in Greenwich and a modernized kennel and dog park are in neighboring Armonk, along with additional offices.

Adopt-A-Dog was named “Best Place to Find a Friend” in Greenwich Magazine’s Best of the Gold Coast 2006 survey.

For more information about Adopt a Dog, call 203-629-9494 or 914-273-1674 or visit www.adoptadog.org. For more information about the Shelter Our Strays committee for the new animal shelter, contact Allyson Halm at 203-622-8299.
