The Long Island Bulldog Rescue Holds 15th Anniversary Fundraiser to Help, Heal and Home® Skyrocketing Numbers of High-Needs, Abandoned Dogs - Sponsored by The RTA Store, Best-Selling Author Patricia Cornwell,
Staci Gruber,  and “Scarpetta”

New York, NY (December 4, 2014):  Animal advocate, actress and wife of radio personality Howard Stern, the beautiful Beth Stern hosted the 15th Anniversary ‘Bash for the Bulldogs’ to benefit the Long Island Bulldog Rescue (LIBR) on Tuesday night (Dec.2) at the Rosenthal Pavilion at New York University’s Kimmel Center.  The crowd of English Bulldog lovers, owners and supporters included Law & Order: SVU’s hip-hop icon Ice T and his model wife Coco Austin, seen in E!’s Ice Loves Coco, with their dogs Spartacus and Maximus.  Three-time Emmy winner Cat Greenleaf of USA Network emceed the event.

It was a great evening to meet and mingle with friends and bulldogs, to find unique items for the Holidays and most importantly, $67,000 was raised for the Long Island Bulldog Rescue to help save the lives of these dogs in urgent need of finding their forever homes. 

The abundant Silent Auction table of items included a signed guitar by “Godfather of Soul” James Brown, solid wood kitchen cabinets from The RTA Store, sterling Tiffany mesh jewelry, a Gucci bag, a Kitchen Aide mixer, a painting of your dog by artist Drago, Mets tickets, an iPhone, Howard Stern autographed bulldog sculpture and so much more.

Guest indulged in a wonderful spread of salads, shrimp and pasta dishes, followed by delicious desserts catered by Top of the Square Catering, while Ice T and Coco Austin worked the room with their famous dogs Maximus and Spartacus, known for their parts in E!’s Ice Loves Coco.

Other bulldogs getting attention included Beauty, a puppy with an amazing rescue story.  Her name sums her up - inside and out.  At only 8 months old, the puppy was picked up on the streets of New York City by NYC Animal Care and Control, shivering in cold and fear.  It will never be known who left this sweet, social, beautiful, helpless pup to fend for herself against dangers too many to list.  LIBR did everything to help, heal and home her, and she is now a happy, healthy member of an LIBR 4EvrFamily®.

Laurette Richin, LIBR Executive Director said, “Right now, many people still see dogs as impulse items or presents.  That is why we have so many in such urgent need. Dogs should be brought into their families after careful research and conversation with reputable, experienced breeders or rescue agencies.” 

The increase in bulldogs being surrendered to the LIBR is 2,569% since 1999.  The non-profit organization has a 98% success rate, including high-risk dogs needing multiple surgeries, skin or eye care, training, etc.  In 2013, $285,000 was spent on veterinary care.

The LIBR, located in Stony Brook, Long Island, serves nine states in the Northeast.  Its mission is to provide education, prevention, intervention, and adoption services to ensure that all English Bulldogs enjoy long, healthy lives in loving, safe, appropriate homes where they are provided the life-long care they require and deserve.  LIBR commits to each English Bulldog and adopters they serve for the life of the dog.  If an adoption is unsuccessful, the dog is to be returned to the LIBR.  LIBR not only spays, neuters and gives vaccines, they give each dog whatever is needed for a great new life in a LIBR 4EvrFamily.®   They provide expert medical care, behavioral support and guidance to ensure each rescue has every chance to be a happy, healthy member of the best LIBR 4EvrFamily ®.  LIBR responds 24/7/365, even during Holiday abandonment seasons when people abandon their puppies, sick or injured dogs to attend parties, go on vacation, etc. 

Abandoned as impulsively as they were purchased, or surrendered by heartbroken families in crisis, they face imminent death or a shortened life of inadequate care, chronic illness, injury, conduct problems and loneliness.  As long-time members of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, and in their role as the regional representative of Bulldog Club of America Rescue Network, LIBR is the leading resource for bulldog rescue in Northeastern America.  

To help, or if you have interest in adopting an English Bulldog, please visit Long Island Bulldog Rescue is an IRS public charity 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization, that Helps, Heals and Homes ® English Bulldogs across the Northeast United States.  Follow LIBR on Twitter @LIBulldogrescue.
