One woman. Lots of dreams. Lots of Goals. Lots of Accomplishments.


I have always dreamed of having my own animal shelter. I pictured a green grassy park for play, big tubs for baths, clean beds and plenty of food for everyone. I didn’t completely achieve my goal, but at one time my husband and I lived with five canine friends – all rescue dogs.

 We would have had more, but we had run out of room at the Lucas Inn. We have done what we can, but there are far many more dogs in our town that could use help from more than just us.

 We love animals as much as we love life and thats what inspired us to do something about it.


We gave it our all and raise thousands of dollars between September 2011 to November 2015 to put towards a new home for cats & dogs in Riverhead, NY. We are now just waiting on town officials to move forward with this dream. We have also funded 2 new dog parks in Calverton, NY & Riverhead, NY for the community to enjoy. Now we move forward with our next mission "Making Towns A Success" Join us and make a difference in your community. Be a Volunteer. Be a good person and help make a difference.  

We do fundraising to help every body and every thing in the community. Helping Towns Thrive & Prosper. Enhancing the Lives of People and Animals.
