Home at last - it was an exciting and emotional day as hundreds of people came out yesterday to celebrate our new home! Thank you to all!
Board members, Paula Krenkel and Ruth Frumkin, Harrison Mayor Ron Belmont and John Mara (Giants owner and Pet Rescue supporter) all spoke from their heart, offering a big welcome and words of appreciation. John Mara presented Lisa Zappia (Board member who volunteered as the GC for the renovations) his Giants hard hat autographed by Eli Manning and Victor Cruz. The hard hat was worn by John Mara when the new Giants stadium was built.
The afternoon was spent reconnecting with old friends and making new friends - the atmosphere was filled with love, pride, excitement and joy. There were raffle prizes, refreshments, dogs and cats for adoption and facility tours. To top it all off, we installed our new street sign, making us even more official. We look forward to welcoming our future guests - both 2-legged and 4-legged.
