Fairfield County Community Foundation’s Giving Day Fundraiser on February 28th

Dr. Steve Zeide is involved with and on the board of The Stamford Animal Shelter Alliance (SASA) (previously known as Stamford Helping Paws). It  is a public/private nonprofit partnership set up by the City of Stamford to be the official fundraising organization for the Stamford Animal Control & Care Center (SACCC), Stamford’s municipal animal shelter. Their primary mission is to raise money to augment that which the City of Stamford can allocate to build a new, state-of-the-art animal shelter, a long-overdue and desperately needed project.

SASA will be participating in the Fairfield County Community Foundation’s Giving Day fundraiser on February 28th.  Please ‘follow’ and ‘like’ the Stamford Animal Shelter Alliance on Facebook and consider making a tax-deductible donation on Giving Day via their website  or click on  their Giving Day landing page. If everyone who wishes to see a new animal shelter in Stamford donates even $10 to SASA on Giving Day, SASA could win a $20,000 bonus prize. For more information about SASA, please contact them at stamfordanimalshelteralliance@gmail.com.

If that isn’t enough incentive to donate already, BHPH will be donating one week of Pet Lodging to the first 5 people to donate $300 or more. So please mark your calendars for Giving Day on 2/28 and and consider a donation to help get us a step closer to a new animal shelter here in Stamford.

Employee of the Month for January



Our January Employee of the Month is Jorge. He does a great job each month helping to keep things running smoothly upstairs, especially when Maribel or Otto are away. He not only helped bear the burden of extra shifts, but he took on the leadership role several days when Maribel was away.  Jorge was also very helpful in assisting Dr. Petrie with patients. Jorge is good at what he does and is well liked by staff, clients and the pets he handles.  Best of all, you know if you work with him, you will have a good time. He is a hard worker, always has a smile and he keeps things light and fun with his humor. For these, and many more reasons, this award is well deserved. Congratulations, Jorge!
